The beauty of Puerto Princesa underground river : Palawan

The 8.2 km-long (5 mile) Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on December 4, 1999, for its ecological value, and features a limestone formation containing an underground river that is reputed to be the longest navigable underground river in the world. An effort is being made to have the park voted as one of the new seven wonders of nature.
