At the risk of getting rained on one Saturday in July 2012, we still proceeded as planned to see this amazing piece of nature.
After our tour guide parked the van, he led us to a paved trail to reach the rock formation. He mentioned that the trail was just newly constructed a few months back. Prior to that, visitors to the site had to brave the slippery and rugged terrain.
Kapurpurawan rock formation is simply breathtaking. They said it turns glistening white after the rain. Upon closer inspection, it looks like fine grains of sand that solidified to form the rock, but it is actually limestone.
Starting in the middle of the year, visitors can no longer climb the rock formation. Some people have vandalized this piece of beauty, hence the restriction. But climbing the big rock on the back side facing South China sea is still allowed. It is steep and extra caution needs to be exercised.
When we were there, some people were setting up structures for a movie that will be filmed on site. There were pony rides too, and for 50php each way, you will surely have a blast.
Just don't forget to bring a hat, umbrella, and bottled water. It can get very hot since there are hardly any trees or shade to hide from the sun.
