Despite the similarity in name with Quitinday Hills of Camalig, Quitinday Falls and Underground River is kilometers away and located in different town of Albay. Local?s say that it is their version of Palawan Underground River and Cebu?s Kawasan Falls rolled into one but I must say that it is beautifully unique but equally magical and thrilling.
About 30 minutes from the Green Hills is the underground river in Jovellar. This pristine subterranean waterway may not be as long as that of Puerto Prinsesa but is as majestic nevertheless. A bamboo raft will take you through the length of the cavern, glimmering stalactites jutting from the darkness and an occasional bat zipping out of sight. At the other end is an underground falls where you can bathe. The water is raging, but cool, and extremely invigorating! You can also (very carefully) explore upstream where the water is less vehement but as refreshing.
