Kapurpurawan Rock Formations


After the amazing experience at the century old Burgos Lighthouse, it's time for an amazing rock formation that mother earth created for us.  From the lighthouse to Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, was an  hour.

The road is on a mountainous area of Burgos, Ilocos Norte, so we were able to see the shapes and curves of the mountains.  Goats, cows and horses can be found along the road or even in the middle of the road, so the driver must be aware of it.

After getting off the van, the sea breeze was cold and fresh.  The sound of the waves hitting the boulders, by the shore were strong.  The waves in this area are like the waves in aurora, perfect for surfing.  We walked on a cemented pathway then passed through an arch made up of the live branches of the plants on each side of the pathway.  There are comfort rooms and trash bins in some areas.  Horse back riding is also one of the must try.

The area is surrounded by mountains made up of limestone's then covered with vines.  Each lime stones has its original size, shapes and appearance.  As the forces of the waves from the ocean hit the rocky shore in the area, it creates different shapes.  We are so sad that we weren't able to step or even touched the gorgeous white rock formation, because there was a blue rope that serves as the line for the tourists.  We were just on the view deck.  But, I appreciated it, because at least the management knows that stepping on the rock itself can erode its beauty and formation.  And I hope that the travelers or tourists will not damage its natural beauty.
