inside the Tabon CaveCaves and Rockshelters

Caves and rock shelters are hollow places found in the limestone

(karst) formation.
Cave formation takes millions of years. When it rains water flows
through tiny cracks in the limestone. Water contains a gas called
carbon dioxide which forms a mild acid that eats away the limestone,
forming stalactites and passages.
Caves and rock shelters have been used as living areas and later,
cemeteries of prehistoric peoples.

Geological studies reveal that the limestone formation in this reservation dates back from the Lover-Middle Miocene Period

or about 25 million years ago.
This formation has been build up in large part by the accumulation
of shells and skeletons of organisms underwater such as corals.
They were uplifted, through time, resulting in the present formation.
