Patapat Viaduct

Patapat Viaduct is a remarkable bridge that connects the Ilocos Region and the Cagayan Valley in the northernmost part of Luzon Island in the Philippines. It is one of the most scenic and impressive engineering feats in the country, as it curves along the coast of the Pasaleng Bay and offers a stunning view of the blue sea and the green mountains. The viaduct was built in 1986 to provide a safer and faster route for travelers, as the old road was prone to landslides and accidents. The viaduct is 1.3 kilometers long, 9.42 meters wide, and 31 meters high. It has 76 spans and can support up to 15 tons of weight. It is also the fourth longest bridge in the Philippines.

The Patapat Viaduct is not only a functional road, but also a popular tourist attraction. Many visitors stop by to take photos, enjoy the breeze, and admire the beauty of nature. Some also try to spot dolphins and whales that sometimes appear in the bay. The viaduct is part of the "Northern Tour" that you can take from Pagudpud, a coastal resort town that is about 16 kilometers away from the bridge. You can also explore other nearby attractions, such as the Kabigan Falls, the Bantay Abot Cave, and the Blue Lagoon Beach. If you are looking for a memorable and adventurous road trip in the Philippines, you should definitely check out the Patapat Viaduct and its surroundings.
