DAY 2: May 1, 2013 (Wednesday)
Laoag City, Burgos Lighthouse, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation and Windmills and Pagudpud
From Burgos Lighthouse or Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, our tricycle driver drove us to KAPURPURAWAN ROCK FORMATION which is only 15 mins. away. It was 12:10 pm when we got there and it was scorching hot!
Entrance: P20.00 each
According to our driver, Kapurpurawan means "Kaputian" in Ilocano, which is derived from the word “puraw” which means “puti” (white).
We got excited when we saw the rock formation from afar. There are 2 ways on how you can go near the rock: ride the horse or walk. We opted to walk as I pity the horses bec. it's too hot that day. Walking takes about 5-10 mins.
NOTE: No one is allowed to enter the rock formation itself (spinx looking rock) anymore unlike in previous years. There's a long rope that barricades the area now and there are guides that will tell you not to go there. I heard that there are vandals that are ruining the beauty of the rock by putting their names. You can just go to the sides of the rock formation where you can take pictures. The rock formation has milky white color and when you hold some parts of it, it will pulverize in your hands. The limestone formation is formed due to weather and forces of the ocean through the years.
SUPER amazing rock formation. Aside from the rock formation, the South China Sea already known now as the West Philippine Sea is breathtaking view as well. I'm so thankful that I was able to see this beautiful wonders of nature.!
Stayed for a while at nipa hut afterwards to eat our baon burgers.
Next stop...... BANGUI WINDMILLS !
