ABOUT BADIANG CAVE
It is one and a half km. away from the Poblacion and is accessible by jeepney, tricyle, and car over rough roads. About two years ago, townspeople discovered earthen pots with intricately incised designs. The floor here is covered with guano which townspeople use as fertilizer. The cave has stalactities and stalagmites. The caves must have been a burial site of pre-Spanish Filipinos. It is also where the Capiz revolutionaries routed Spanish soldiers. The side of the mountain where the caves are is a spectacular sight. It is grayish-black rock rising 200 ft. to the sky. Plants, orchids among them, hang from the cliffs, blooming in the summer and filling the air with exotic fragrances.
The resident of Dumarao that Badiang Cave has a connecting tunnel to the Suhot Cave in Dumalag since both caves are found in the same mountain only 6 km. apart from each other, although Suhot is on a lower elevation. On the other hand, entrance to Badiang Cave is hidden by dense jungle. In pre-war days, phosphate was said to have been extracted from the cave but it was a short-lived effort.
