Here are the things To Know Before Visiting the Abra Piwek 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. 

PIWEK ROCK FORMATIONS is a group of natural rock formations situated along both riverbanks and even in the middle of the Binongan River downstream of Barangay Alaoa. It stretches up to a half kilometer. 


Getting there and back involved a rough jeepney ride, river crossing, hiking and scrambling down the rock surfaces. The whole place resembles Tinipak River in Daraitan, Minalungao in Nueva Ecija, and Siitan River in Quirino. It’s a beautiful natural spot. Visiting this place would be the highlight of your trip to Abra.
