I can’t tell you the exact date when we visited Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. It’s been three and a half months since I made the trip and the dates all mashed together in my head. All I can tell you is how beautiful the place is and how I long to return as soon as I could. I have to admit that nature doesn’t impress me as much as adrenaline-giving rides or attractions, but this place definitely impressed the socks out of me.
This has either have to be my second or third day in Ilocos and Ilocos’ beaches are as blue as they can be and are the best ones I’ve seen yet. Add a few gorgeous rock formations and a distinct feel of being disconnected from the buzzing, digital, busy as heck world and you have Kapurpurawan Rock Formation.
From the drop-off area, you have the option of walking or riding a horse to reach the actual rock formations. It would have been really cool to ride a horse, but the walk is only five to ten minutes so it’s not that much of a hassle. Plus you can take pictures anytime unlike when you’re in a horse! Various vendors also sell cold drinks and ice candies along the way so you don’t have to worry about beating the heat.
I ended up so in love with the place that I voluntary walked around so much (and in mud) just to take photos and even went up rocks. I also took lots of videos which you can take a glimpse of at my travel VLOG. The pictures, on the other hand, I will show you below:
We only managed to stay for an hour or two as we have other places to go but I finally see for myself why this place is on top of every Ilocos itinerary. Photos and videos doesn’t do it justice!
