Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is situated in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. From the national highway, one will traverse a long winding dirty road. No public transportation goes inside the area so it is a must to have your own car rather than walking under the heat of the sun.
Due to its white color characteristic, its name was derived. In Ilocano word, "Puraw" means white. The rock looked lik ...

Kapurpurawan Rock Formation News
After visiting the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse (Check : Cape Bojeador Lighthouse), we went over to another popular attraction in Burgos. It turns out, Ilocos is not just popular with their heritage houses and cobblestone streets, the region is also known for some amazing rock formation and most notably the Kapurpurawan! The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is possibly one of the most visited destinations in Ilocos Norte due to its distinctive appearance. The term Kapurpurawan is derived from the root word "Puraw" which means "white" in Ilocano.
So many places to explore and it is only day 2 of our Ilocos expedition. To start our day and make use of our idle time while waiting for the co-tourists, we had a quick stroll to take some snaps around the area of our meeting place. It is really refreshing to be in a foreign city. Thats why I love travelling because you get to witness locals say things differently and do things differently. A whole new experience of culture and meeting new people. After that brief exploration and contemplation, we made our way to Pagudpud!
A And D Travels Ilocos Vacation Part 2 - Pagudpud Tour, Patapat Viaduct, Bangui Windmills, Kapurparawan Rock Formation And More
Second day in Ilocos! You can read about our first day here. And as I've mentioned in my previous post, I booked the tours thru our hotel. A tour guide was with us for this day and the next day. It was a jam packed day for us. Ganun talaga if you book tours, maybe next time we can DIY our tour na din. The problem with traveling with kids, schedules aren't always followed. Haha! I knew I have to be the one wake them up, feed them, change their clothes and fix our things for the day. So, I woke up extra early so I can eat breakfast peacefully at Cafe Bonita. Ha!
After enjoying the top tourist attractions in Pagudpud, we had our lunch at past 1:00 in the afternoon and headed to Burgos for our South Tour.
Exploring the Ilocos Region has always been on top of my travel list and Im so glad that I was able to explore two of its major provinces early this year along with my fellow legionaries. We were able to explore both Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte in a span of 3 days and 2 nights. The tour was actually a part of our so-called Outdoor Function that we annually do every summer. This was by far the farthest destination we have ever been as a group and we were all challenged by that super long travel time from Cavite to Ilocos. It was more than a half day worth of travel (we spent 13 hours on the roa ...
Come with me as I take you on a nice day trip through the upmost northern part of the Philippines: Ilocos Norte. Here we settled down in a cute little municipality called Pagudpud which really had quite a lot to offer.
We had a cute little resort named Casa Consuelo at Blue Lagoon beach. The day we were shooting this vlog we visited some of the main sights and attraction Pagudpud (an surrounding municipalities) has to offer. This included the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, the Bangui Windmills, and the Kabigan Falls.
We had fun on this little day trip and tric ...
