It was almost lunch time when we arrived at our next destination: Kapurpurawan Rock Formation.

Kapurpurawan Rock Formation
The location is 3 kilometers from the highway, passing thru a bumpy and dusty road before reaching the drop off site. From the drop off, you need to hike on a cemented trail for another 10 - 15 minutes before reaching the site. If walking is not for you, you can opt to ride a horse for Php 100.

Going down the cemented trail
The term Kapurpurwan came from the Ilocano word "puraw" meaning white. As we came closer to the area, you will see that most of the rock formation are sparkling white. But what amazed me the most is how nature created this natural beauty from the forces of water, wind and waves of the ocean. This process is known in science as sedimentation.

Kuya Harold told us that the local government stopped allowing tourists to climb a part of the rock formation due to vandalism and also for safety since the rocks tend to be fragile. I hope those who visit the place will also help preserve this wonderful masterpiece of nature.

Best time to visit is early morning to avoid the harsh sun and the crowd since it can be a bit crowded when all tourist arrives at the same time. And most importantly, bring water for hydration since there are no shade in the area.
