Great must see area!

Historical place with lots of fresh air - a great getaway from Manila. The mountain air is fresh and the views spectacular.

,,Just 30 minutes from my hometown of Bontoc via motorbike, Banaue rice terraces is really a sight to see if you wanted to follow the steps towards the heaven of Ifugao gods..The golden terraces display their fantastic view when "palay" is ripening. This I saw during the month of June..One could also wonder to nearby barangays displaying their wood crafted... More

Well worth the long drive from Manila. The never ending views were fantastic. Every twist and turn of the road brought another view to admire.

We hired a local 12 year old girl who did a fantastic job walking us through the rice fields and visiting an old village, where the passed away old people are kept under the hatched roofs of the little pita...

Finally, got the chance to visit the famous Banaue Rice Terraces. The view did not disappoint. It is good to see the terraces during the brink of the hot season when the tourists are just about to flock the area. Well worth the visit.
