Out of the 25 tourist attractions I’ve seen during my tour to Ilocos, the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in Burgos is a sight to behold. Particularly renowned for its unique formation of rocks that looks like a reminder of prehistoric past. It is extremely a rugged white mountain of rocks rise above highlands. The irregular and cone-shaped high rocks of every form takes a hundred of years to form, it’s usually formed by products of erosion of pre-existing rocks.
Because of the rugged terrain, I’m not so sure if I can tolerate the heat and not really sure if I’m fit enough for a 2-hour uphill and downhill trek, it was extremely hot but windy out there so I rented a horse to take me around following the steep trail and surely, it’s the kind of horse that can manage rocky terrain. Anyway, the cost of the horse is not that expensive at all, it’s only 100 per person with a guide around.
This trail will lead you all the way down to the rock formation site. Down there is a sloping pasture, you can see the presence of cattle, sheep and goats around. it’s a grazing land.
I’m not an experienced rider but I can lead a horse.
One of the most dramatic rock formation.
