Ilocos is a home to some of the beautiful attractions, one of the most wonderful attractions I’ve seen is the ”Bantay Abot Cave” It is located along the beautiful shore of a small town of Baloi, Ilocos Norte. From the name itself, ”Bantay” means mountain in Ilocano and ”Abot” means a cave. It’s a mountain with a hole.
Bantay Abot cave is not really an ancient cave, it is a hill that was wrecked by an earthquake in the year 1980, leaving a hole in the middle part, it looks like a Doughnut hole. Behind the hill is a high cliff. Down there is a sea from a high cliff, you can see the powerful waves breaking down and crashing into rocks. This sea is not suitable for swimming.
Standing up high the cliff to see the stunning view of the whole area. What a stunning scenery! Somewhere up there, the sounds of sea waves can do more wonders, it makes me feel more relaxed, so refreshing to keep me going and washed my blues away. It cures everything.
This is just a proof that beauty can also be found in ruins, Natural forces have sloped this, it looks like cracks on earth.
