Burgos, Bangui, and Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte

November 17, 2015

On Day 3 of our 6D/7N North Luzon Backpacking Trip, we took the mini-bus from Laoag City and got off in Burgos, where we were greeted by Drex, who was referred to us by our Laoag Tour Guide James. We paid him P1300 to do the North and South Pagudpud Tours (including entrance fees).

We got to explore the upper part of Ilocos Norte, particularly the towns of Burgos, Bangui, and Pagudpud. Burgos is known for its Kapurpurawan Rock Formations and the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, while Bangui boasts of its 1.65 MW wind turbines placed along a nine-kilometer shoreline.

Meanwhile, Pagudpud is famous for the Patapat Viaduct and Kabigan Falls. Moreover, it is where the northern-most tip of the Luzon Island lies. We also got to visit the Blue Lagoon and Saud Beach, which are definitely included in the best beaches we’ve seen — with white powdery sand and sapphire blue water.

Here are some photos:

La Mesa Ecopark

October 24, 2015

Our chill Saturday was spent at La Mesa Ecopark, a relaxing getaway place just in Quezon City. There were different activities including horseback riding, boating, fishing, shooting, and bungee jumping but we only got to try the zipline and water bicycle due to lack of time. The zipline was worth our P200 (each) as the view from it was amazing (La Mesa Dam and trees). We spent around P50 for entrance fees and another P200 for the tandem waterbike.

Mt. Mirador / Mt. Pinagbanderahan: Quezon National Forest Park

August 30, 2015

Situated right in the middle of Quezon National Forest Park is Mt. Mirador or Mt. Pinagbanderahan, whose peak is 1200 ft. above sea level. The cemented 2-km. trail is manageable, scenic and alluring to newbies in hiking. It was very important during World War II, as it was where the Philippine flag was hoisted; hence, its name.
