Limestone Cave, Dumalag, Capiz.
As already mentioned, Iloilo is connected with Capiz on the N. coast by a railway, and, going N. on this line, a traveller will pass by some interesting sights. Soon after leaving Ventura, there will be seen to the W. several high mountain clifis of white coral formation. These contain a number of caves, which are of wonderful structure and great beauty. To visit these one should alight at Buntog (which is readied soon after entering Capiz Province) and go to Dumalag (4 km. from Buntog); the latter being a pretty village, lying on the bank of a river at the foot of the white mountain cliffs. Dumalag has a pleasant climate, with good bathing at Sohut Spring, though there are no lodging arrangements for visitors. The
