Pundaquit Anawangin Trek

Pundaquit to Anawangin trek, although the usual way to Anawangin Cove is by pumpboat from PundaquitT There is land route passing by a hilly area known interchangeably called Mount Pundaquit and Mount Anawangin. The trail passes by shrublands and grasslands, affording views of the nearby mountains. Medium sized bamboo and ornamental-looking plants deck the paths, at times transforming the trail into a garden like environment. At first flat and then moderately steep, the midpoint of the trail is the summit of Mt. Pundaquit.

And then the descent goes to the Anawangin side of the mountain. According to the locals, the name Anawangin is derived from the Ilokano word 'nuang' which means carabao. The reason behind this are the wild, sometimes aggressive carabao that roam freely in the slopes. After hours of descent, pine trees would herald the beach, which can glow into luminous white with the sunlight. Basic facilities such as a small store, shower rooms, and huts are in place in Anawangin even as the locals try to preserve its being untouched. The cove is perfect for camping also.
