Sohoton Cave: Mesmerizing

Sohoton National Park was declared as such in 1935 by Presidential Proclamation 831, primarily to preserve the natural geological features unique in the province of Samar.  Part of the National Park includes the series of caves in the 841 hectares in Rawis, Barangay Guirang in Basey, Samar - and the most accessible among them is the Sohoton Cave.
