Philippine Landmarks : Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte II

The province of Ilocos Norte is undeniably endowed not only with historical and cultural landmarks but with breath-taking attractions created by nature as well. Here are some of the must-see sites:

Kapurpurawan Rock Formations
An Ilocano word which means “kaputi putian”, the Kapurpurawan rock formation is a grand white limestone formation located at the rocky coast of Burgos in Ilocos Norte.  The breath-taking view of the west Philippine Sea serves as a backdrop to the impeccable beauty of this majestic stone formation.

Lover’s Rock
Collectively known as the lover’s rock, the Timmangtang rock and Bantay abot cave are two stone structures created through years of erosion. The former is a bell-shaped stone covered with grass and bushes; hence the name. The later derived its name from Ilocano words which means “a mountain with a hole”. The hole in the middle of the mountain was formed due to the relentless pounding of waves to its walls. These two rock formations are believed to be lovers, the Timmangtang rock being the male and the bantay abot cave being the female.

Kabigan Falls
Located at the eastern part of Baranggay Baloi in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, the Kabigan falls is a sight of beauty and grandeur.  It is a local landmark known for its cool fresh water falling from a 120-foot falls to a concaved basin below. This magnificent falls can be reached by foot in about 20 minutes from the national highway.
