For our third day in Batanes, we were supposed to go to Sabang Island. However, it rained so hard early in the morning that we just postponed our Sabang trip for the next day. At around 9am, the sun was shining as if nothing happened! So we decided to take the North Batan Tour instead. We booked Tricycle #32 again for the day.
The views from the Pag-asa weather station was ahhh-mazing! Pictures cannot do them justice – you really have to be there to appreciate it’s full beauty and breathe in the fresh air (literally), as well as the awesome-ness of the place. Nature at its finest!
Here are some photos of our North Batan Tour, with our ever reliable tricycle driver -slash- tour guide, Kuya Severino.
