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

This place is so nice. Though it was so hot the time we were there, I still enjoyed a lot and appreciated the scenic view.. Thanks to Manong Benjie who toured us, guide us, and became our Photographer :) I really love the view because for me it is so peaceful.

This was the first place we went for our 2nd day of prenup photo shoot. On our way going to the site, we can see the government has built some more windmills around the area. You will need to pay few amount (I didn't know how the exact amount, since I was not the one paying for it) to be... More

From Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, we had to drive through a rough road, all the way to the rock formations. There was an option to do horse back riding, but we opted to walk. Great scenery indeed! NOTE: Kapurpurawan Environmental Fee >>> Php 10 Kapurpurawan Horseback >>> Php 100 Check out my blog for more details: http://www.tripnitj.com/2013/09/the-treasures-of-ilocos-norte.html
