The rice terraces of Ifugao are truly wonders in their own right. The ride there is a quite tough, you have to take 6 h bus from Baguio.but then you can just relax within a nature. Would definitely recommend a guide who would make sure you don't get lost and help with the logistics of accommodation, meals, etc. Definitely recommend... More

The start of the rice terraces can be viewed from my hotel window and as you come closer, you really marvel at how all these were done hundreds of years ago. Talk to a local and you see the pride. You also salute the farmers who continue to plant rice in the same terraces.

Great experience. See it during May to August when the rice fields are really green and luscious. It is great to see that this UN Heritage site is continuing to flourish. I just hope that the Heritage Fee they charge is put into good use. make sure you go all the way to Tapia Falls. Bring your swimsuits. Wade in... More

This is our first stop in our Banaue-Sagada journey. Just like what we've read from our books, the rice terraces is splendid...no one beats the Ifugao people in carving these beautiful terraces. However, younger generations seems to shift in other fields, farming seems losing its importance. The terraces needs preservation and even restoration. The people here were so nice, especially...

Fresh air, nice people, very peaceful place, weather here is cold. There are affordable hotels with a great view of the terraces and you can also get a guide to show you around, just if you want.

We went on a brilliant walk that took three to four hours. Start from the town and either catch a tricycle or walk up to the main viewpoint above the town. We walked and it was a steady 5k uphill, but the views were good and there are viewpoints along the way. At each one was an old couple dressed... More

It takes commitment and strong determination to get to the rice terraces In Banaue but worth the effort. Banaue is a bit like a frontier town but once you get away from the traffic into the coutryside, it is beautiful. There are severl good places to view the terraces so take your camera.
