Sotohon Caves

Another must-see tourist spot if you happen to be in Leyte or Samar.

Sohoton Natural Bridge and Caves is a rock formation that connects two mountains. It’s a national park that was declared under Proclamation No. 831 on July 19, 1935 with an area of around 840 hectares. It is composed of vast forest area and complex cave structures.

 

Sohoton Natural Caves (Samar, Philippines)

Photographer’s note: F/8, 20 sec, ISO 200, Nikon D700*, Nikkor AF 10.5mm 2.8 fisheye DX, Benro C-298 tripod

*This was a borrowed Nikon D700 from a very good friend, Lot-lot, a Leysamfoto member based abroad who was with us that time. Thanks Lot! Another advantage of using leading brands like Nikon or Canon, and some good friends in between huh?

BTW, I really had a good time with the guys back at Leysamfoto Club and of course extra extra fun was to be with our mentors like Ibarra Deri and the rest of the gang.

Will I still go back to Sohoton? Yes. (stubborn!) In fact, I’m longing to go back… there are still more or less 839 point something hectares waiting to be photographed LOL!
