The Cave of Alqarah is a must-see and visit the place. The cave is the main attraction in Al Qarah Mountain or Tower of Al Qarah (both are the known names of the place) because of the magnificent rock wall formation showcasing the geological masterpiece of nature and the incomparable engineering skills of time to build a craft that humans cannot do.

Others call this cave the Civilization Cave because it narrates ancient history through the relics and artifacts of the craftsmanship, artistry, and elegance of the early residents of the place way back in the archaic period.

Also, it is known as Judas Cave. The information available on Google and other published literary accounts on the internet revealed that such a name originated Filipinos, believing that this was where the Disciple of Christ, Judas Iscariot, took his own life. But this information is not official.

Visitors had the chance to experience walking undergrounds passing through narrow opening cracks of rocks connecting from one chamber to another. The thrills stand as the visitor comes across the dead-end wall yet finds passages to the left and right-side cellar rock that open its way and allow you to go further and inner of the mountain core.

With lighted main path walks, it is easier for the explorers to enjoy roaming the rocky sub-terrain of the chamber of the mountain without any hesitation or rocking their nerves, especially when exploring with the kids. The lights keep the explorers away from banging the wall or dropping to lower rock surfaces.
