Get the best Information about Abra Ambang Stream & Rock Formations

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more. 

Around 200 meters downstream of Piwek Rock Formations, is the AMBANG ROCK FORMATIONS which has different features and characteristics. The main boulder is as big as a two-storey house. It has uniform prints all over its surface and the locals call it “camouflage”. There are two ways to tour along these rocks; either by trekking up a steep hill and start downstream by swimming and rock climbing, or ride a bamboo raft upstream for an easier tour.


AMBANG STREAM & ROCK FORMATIONS is best to visit on dry seasons because there's a river to cross first before you get there. Getting a guide is a must because of the treacherous trails and rock climbs.
