Puerto Princesa Underground River: New Wonders of Nature

I can’t help myself but feel so proud after reading from N7W that the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) from Palawan, Philippines  is officially confirmed as one of the New7Wonders of Nature. I’ve been there once and I can really say that the place is truly magnificent and spectacular. Going to Palawan is already a dream come true but going to PPUR is a winter wonderland for me. I am proud that the combined efforts exerted by our local and national government as well as our fellow countrymen to promote PPUR  paved way to a great result.

     PPUR was second to be confirmed as one of the New Wonders of Nature on a preliminary basis after validating the telephone voting in the Philippines by New7Wonders. The first to be announced was Jeju Island of South Korea. Here’s the status of the remaining 5 entries as per the site’s announcement.

Following Jeju Island, PPUR is the second to be confirmed on a preliminary basis, as New7Wonders has now completed the telephone voting validation in the Philippines. The remaining five provisional New7Wonders of Nature are currently undergoing the three steps of the verification process, namely the national voting validation, the global voting calculation confirmation by an independent audit firm, and the preparation and implementation of the Official Inauguration ceremonies.
