Ugong Rock is located at Barangay Tagabenit which is more than an hour away from the Puerto Princessa city proper and nearby the famed underground river. It is a huge and imposing 75 feet high limestone formation that crops out in the middle of a rice field. The main activity in the area is cave spelunking and zip lining. What makes Ugong rock unique compared to other zip lines is the climb up. In almost all zip lines you go up by climbing a flight of stairs, but Ugong rock is quite different and you will learn more why. When you reach the top, it was such an exhilarating and a joyful experience as you wipe off your sweat and feel the fresh breeze over your face.


The climb is concluded by a slide down a 380 meter zip line across the corn fields.
