The view was worth the short hike. The sun was scorching hot when we went there but we hardly mind since the scene was perfect with the sunlight and the warm breeze. Just have your sun shades ready and your sunblocks on. Too bad tourists are no longer allowed to go near the rock formation but you can still take... More

The place is very hot, but you can rent umbrella there or if you want to ride in a horse so you can explore the whole place. If you want a nice photo here, use your imagination to create a different photo, different scenic view that you can imagine.

The trek from the parking area going to the rock formations is quite long and there's no shade to go under. You can bring an umbrella or better yet wear a hat/cap or put a shawl or any clothing to shield your head from the heat. One thing though is that you can't go near the famous rock formation you...

Another one in my list to go to. Unfortunately, people are not allowed to go near nor climb the formation anymore because the caretakers said some former visitors have tried to vandalize the place. So they built a vantage point to view the formation and still get good pictures. It was a bit of a walk from the parking under... More

The province of Ilocos Norte is quickly becoming to be a tourist destination for locals and foreigners alike. The first time I saw Kapurpurawan Rock Formation was 10 years ago, when the easiest way to get there was to approach it from the ocean side. There was no road going to the place at that time, so the only way... More

It was so windy. Even though the sun shone very bright, I feel relax because of the fresh air coming from the beach. It was really nice. The rock formations are really great and it's really white.

To be honest, I expected the place to be bigger and see more rock formations. But what you basically see in search engines when you type in "Kapurpurawan" is basically what you'll see when you get there. BUT the place is easy to get to and its just P10 entrance fee to get it so why not right? And if... More

From Vigan, we proceed to Laoag for a 3 hrs. drive I think, One thing I like here in Ilocos, the roads are good and so comfortable to drive at. Our destination of course is Pagudpod to see these windmills. Last time we visited here, there are only few windmills now its spread almost everywhere and this is one of... More

This place is a great area for pictures. The rock formation is majestic and it served as a good backdrop for awesome shots. We went here on a cloudy day and we sure did not have issues with the heat. Also, the wind is strong probably because due rocks, it is compressing the passing wind. It may be crowded with... More

Very hot place to visit. I shouldve brought my shades with me and applied sun block. The place is stunning that you and your friends would gladly fancy for some pictures. We were thinking we could shoot a scifi movie there. Maybe next time. But overall, this one's good to visit in your memory lane. Btw, buy the honeys sold... More
