Callao Cave
In Tuguegarao City, we chartered a tricycle to one of the famous caves in the Philippines. Callao Cave is a seven chamber cave in Cagayan where scientists and experts discovered a 67,000 years old fossilized remains of a Callao Man in 2007, that's thousand years older than the Tabon Man in Palawan. This cave is situated on the Northern foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. PeƱablanca, the name of the municipality, is a Spanish word which means white rocks because of the limestone present in the area.
