We got here and I was like "that's it?" I wouldn't go out of my way to drive here just to see it. It's not worth the trek but if you have time to kill, why not?

This is definitely one of the highlights of our trip in Ilocos! The whole rock formation is so beautiful! You can even ride a horse and explore the whole area with or without a guide! :) the Horse rental is only 150php

So picturesque! The white rock formations are reminders of how wonderful God's creation is. The pony (or Filipino-bred horse) ride was amusing. The man who guided my horse was friendly and professional. Me and my friends had a grand time taking pictures. By the way, the Php100 you pay for the horse ride to the rock formations is split between... More

I immensely enjoyed the raw beauty of the rock formations. Kids had fun scampering around. Paid Php100 for horseback ride to and from the rock formation. It is very hot so wear hat, put sunblock and bring water. We went on a weekday so not much people and we can just sit around and pose for pictures as long as... More

I've been looking forward to seeing this attraction, and I'd say I enjoyed the good view and long walk. A local tour guide was helpful with photo-taking suggestions.

A variation from the other spots tourists are interested in. This rock formation could only be a side trip from the main intention to see the wind turbines. But not bad, it is even a way to rest and view for few minutes and breath fresher air.

We arrived at 130pm and it was scortching hot. I recommend to take a horseback service back and forth to the rocks, especially if you visit in the middle of the day! Be sure to bring your umbrellas, to avoid getting sun burn. The place is very picturesque, ideal location for a photoshoot. The rocks were ok and a good... More

The visit was part of a tour of the northern part of Ilocos Norte. The place has beautiful of nature.. from the sea to mountain, to rock formation... and windmills as part the attraction. It was hot when we made the visit. But it is always a relaxing view to see the mountain and the sea altogether.

Went there during holy week and the place was crowded. Disappointed with what I saw. For me, it's not worth it.

It will be hot! Pour on sunblock and put on the hats and wear comfortable clothes and sturdy shoes. but the place is beautiful. It tugs at your heart strings for a reason i cannot fathom, it just does. The rock formations are lovely, please take the time to breathe it in, enjoy a leisurely pace, savoring every spot. I...
