The Puerto-Princesa underground river or what is officially known as the The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (also known as St. Paul’s Subterranean River National Park, or St. Paul Underground River) is said to be the world’s longest navigable underground river.

The underground navigable river runs to about 8.2 kilometers. Inside you can see major formations of stalactites and stalagmites and several large chambers.
