It's a comfortable 30-45minutes ride from Pagudpud to the South past Bangui (where the windmills are). This rock formation will definitely make your imagination soar. Its another showcase of how the wrath of nature could work beautifully.....
Taking its name from a local dialect, CAPURPURAOAN literaly means "white rock"
From the distance, one could see and hear the powerful waves battering the rugged sea border. The rocks looks volcanic in origin to me as they are dark reminiscent of Igneous rocks formed through a volcanic eruption.
There were still a lot of tourists on the rock formation when we were approaching. We took the time to take pictures in the surrounding area and appreciate the view. When it was our time to climb, all the people are gone and are on their way back to the set off point. The sun was setting and we have the rock formation all for ourselves. Perfect moment!!!!:p
Kapurpurawan is indeed a showcase of the power of wind and water on rock and coral.
When you travel to Ilocos Norte, this hell of natural wonder should find its way on top of your to-see-list.It surely left a lasting impression on me. And oh--I did a couple of jumpshots here. I will be sharing them to you soon. hahaha
