Kapurpurawan Rock Formation


I had second thought in including Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in our itinerary because I know that we have to walk around 500 meters just to reach the place. I have no problem in walking or trekking but we have kids in tow so I wasn’t sure if they will enjoy this place but since we are going to skip Kaibigan Falls, I included this in my itinerary and I have no regrets because this rock formation is really amazing. I’m not good in adjectives so all I can say is WOW and I’m glad that I’ve been here though seeing it up close is not easy.


From the parking lot, you have to go down the stairs and walk in rough and rocky road. I brought umbrella but I wasn’t able to use it because the wind was just too strong.






I was so happy that my husband joined our trip because if not, I don’t know if I will be able to reach the rock formation because look at my son, he doesn’t want to walk. =)



 Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is really amazing and if we’re not in a hurry, we could stay longer here.





gustong umakyat din pero nadudulas. =)

This is the view at the back of the rock formation.

Never been there before so I had fun reading all your posts. Picture perfect ang view, parang nasa postcard. :D Will definitely refer to your posts if ever matuloy sa plans namin. :)

  11. It's true that you have to walk 300-500 meters away from the main road....but it's worth it. been there last year and Kapurpurawan is one of my fave stop in Ilocos. here: http://www.blacksheepslair.com/2012/02/kapurpurawan-limestone-formation.html

  21. How sad 3 times na ako pumunta ng pagudpod but I didn't know this =(

  22. That is absolutely a beautiful place! Who would have thought that that is a Pinas spot? Grabe, undiscovered ata ito. This spot deserves a feature sa Philipoine Tourism Industry. Truly worth recommending! Thanks for sharing!

    Hope to see you again for this week's TT episode!
