The Hidden Masterpiece in the North

The KAPURPURAWAN ROCK FORMATION

LOCATION:  Burgos, Ilocos Norte   Philippines

28

Ilocos Norte is Pagudpud, Paoay Church and Marcos country.  Never heard of this one.  Kapurpurawan.  Kapurpurawan is an Ilocano term for “so white”.

It’s one of those places that the locals recommend.  And since I didn’t have any idea as to what it is, I just trusted our local guide/driver.  I am glad, I said yes to it.  Hiding in this little corner of Burgos, Ilocos Norte is a beautiful rock formation.  Oh, it was beautiful!

We had to take a rough road getting there.  And I took it as a sign that it’s not yet abused and bastardized.  A good opportunity for me.  I can capture its natural magnificence.

It was sunny and hot, but who cares?  I marveled at the sight when we arrived.  Clicking my camera came naturally.
