kapurpurawan rock formation ilocos norte
its intense form is unbelievably extraordinary as it rises meters high above sea level. the formation changes according to the locals as years pass yet it retains its splendor.seeing this great cream colored coastal rock formation of Kapurpurawan in Ilocos Norte in the photos is far from being there. where you will be forced to climb on some areas to be on top of its main flat area.Ilocos Norte has a long coastal area, yet it's only this rock formed in such a way that it combines great curves and cuts with a cream colored surface. thus the name Kapurpurawan, which means "white" in the local dialect of Ilocano.a closer look at its texture shows that it is rough in contrast to how it looks from a long distance shot. but no matter, where you shoot from, it's quite easy to find a nice photo perspective because it is picturesque.a pinnacle, partly carved like its major part, towers at the end of the rock formation adds a great view. for geologists, each curve can actually help explain how this rock was formed this way. the rough terrain and the trek to its rocky coast seems to have protected this place from overcrowding and from people who would usually abuse a natural wonder.i just hope that the locals will be able to maintain this. i would even recommend a minimal entrance fee be charged to visitors to protect and preserve it.Kapurpurawan rock formation is located West of the town of Burgos, accessible by a rough tricycle ride and a short trek of the great Burgos coast.the photo below was taken by fellow travel blogger lantaw, who's also in the photo along with the whole group including lawstude, scud, jonee and fhei. watch out for their posts for great shots and feature of Kapurpurawan.

Those formations are beautiful. It seems there is a pilgrimage or crusade painted on the side of it. Very lovely.
wow! wow! saan ito bai? :D
Incredibly beautiful rock formation! Was it slippery clambering up the different levels?
What fantastic rock formations! They seem modern sculptures. Interesting images, Dong.
AStig! Mas maganda pa to sa Grand Canyon ah!
Pero mas astig yung last pic na parang may mga action figures! Wahahaha! Natuwa lang ako sa mga photos mo.. Grabe ang Ilocos!
