According to locals, the number of skulls inside Opdas Cave amounts to more than a hundred.

One of the burial caves the Joseph Digest team visited was the Opdas Cave. Uncovered by Baban Berong in 1971, remains inside Opdas Mass Burial Cave was found out to be from around 500 to 1000 years old after being carbon dated by Tokyo University as etched near the entrance of the cave. The current façade of Opdas Cave was renovated by the Philippine Tourism Authority in 1991. The number of skulls inside the cave diminished to around 100 due to theft.
