BLUE WATER CAVE, QUEZON, BUKIDNON

Blue Water, Quezon Bukidnon

A promise of adventure for trekking, spelunking and nature exploration.




Blue water, is situated in Brgy. San Jose Quezon, Bukidnon.
One of the 31 barangay of Quezon, Bukidnon. Some 5 kilometers away from the town proper of Quezon, Bukidnon.



Blue water is an underwater cave and is known to locals as the hideout of the Japanese Soldiers back in the days. I am born and raised in Quezon, Bukidnon and I hear this story all the time. Recovered plates, weapons, and even gold. Thus, the tunnels. I know nothing about those claims but I know quite a few people who know these stories more than I do but let's not dig deeper into that (lol). The water in the cave is blue, hence it's name. Your science teacher has probably  told you that water is colorless but the water in the cave is blue all year round. The reason being? I am unsure. It could be that the water is so pure. The blue hue of pure water is an intrinsic property. Also, the color of water varies with the atmospheric condition where the water is present. It could also be the sunlight hitting the water that creates an array of blue tones. If you know the answer, please enlighten me. 

For adventurous travellers, this could be perfect getaway place for you. There are a ton of trekking and climbing that you can do in this area. The white rock formation is also something else. Spectacular Limestone karst landscape.  It's beautiful. 

 Buayan Bridge / Rappeling




Pulangui River

One activity you can also do while you are there is to rappel down Buayan Bridge or climb the White rock walls. Climbing that rock walls is something I've been dying to try.


We have to trek for about 15-20minutes. uphill and downhill to get to the cave.
Gear up and ready your game-face on.

NOTES:

You don't need to pay any fees here.
You can ask for a guide *recommended for first timers* from the Kiokong Eco Tourism Gazebo.
Be generous by giving a little amount to compensate the guide's effort.
 PS: The whole back and fro trek is never a joke.

I'll just let these following photos do the talking.





One of the cave's distinguishing feature is that it connects directly to the Pulangui River.








Going down the second cave mouth. This is where you can swim and enjoy the bleaking water.

  9. Hi, I've never been to Bukidnon but as I can see from your blog, it's a beautiful place. Wish I could visit this place someday.

    This is the quality of photos taken from my Kodak C123 (I hope it's okay to post url here):

    By day: http://www.pinkyjhaney.com/2012/04/pacific-waves-resort.html
    By nigh: http://www.pinkyjhaney.com/2012/04/night-swimming-with-friends-on-holy.html

    The quality of photos depend on the light when you use it underwater, if it's too dark, the flash is useless. You have to be at least 2 feet closer para makita ka sa picture. Pero during daytime, there's no problem with regards of the quality. But this is a good investment if you love swimming and you are on a budget. Hope this helps.

    By the way, I followed your blog. =)

Though praning talaga ako sa mga anyong tubig sa cave kasi nakakabother at hindi ko nakikita. baka may creepy creature inside. hahaha! Anyway, na enjoy ko tong entry mo. Salamat!

  17. I admire your sense of adventure! :) I'm such a scaredycat that I think I would already shiver at the thought of going down using the rope, hehe. I also admire the 6 year old adventurer! I know that when he grows up, he will go to many places. :) Thanks for sharing this very nice place. Someday I hope that I can go there to conquer my fear and experience swimming in Blue Water Cave. Take care and more adventures to come! :)
