Located on the rocky coast of Burgos, the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is another one of Ilocos’ must-see attractions. The name “Kapurpurawan” came from the Ilocano word ”puraw” which means white. Naturally sculpted by the process of sedimentation with the aid of sea water and air, the rock formation boasts a beautiful white surface that is undoubtedly picture-perfect. Guests must trek in order to reach the rock formation. Along the way, a statue of “Biag ni Lam-ang* (Life of Lam-ang)”, an Ilocano epic can be seen.
Trekking is a great physical activity to strengthen your immune system. When going trekking with other tourists, always observe social distancing and stay 2 meters away from the person in front of you. Avoid areas with large crowds to minimize physical interaction. The disinfection of natural sculptures like rock formations may be challenging, for these can cause the formation to break. In order to stay safe, avoid touching the rock formation instead.
