We took the overnight bus to banuae and felt that no trip north would be complete without a visit to Batad. It is massive, truely a amitheatre like rice terrace. From banaue it was 1000 pesos to the saddle with a tricycke. They were still building roads down further (towards a path that's ~20mins from batad) which will likely be... More

We visited the rice terrace area recently and Batad is defiantly the best of all of them! We took the Ohayami overnight bus to Banaue which arrived in the morning and then took the overnight bus back the same day, this was mainly due to our time restrictions but we felt it enough time to do what we wanted. We... More

The rice terraces around Batad are stunning. We walked from Banuae via Pula and the scenery justs keeps on getting better the further you walk. It can be tricky walking around the area as you have to balance on top of the terrace, which can be muddy and slippery. One of the best walks ever.

Batad is a wonderful place in the Cordillera and I prefer it to Banaue. You can spend one to two days and just relax in this indigenous village. I liked the hike around the rice terraces and to the Tappiya Fall. I also recommend to hike up to the view deck on the other side of the village.

I enjoyed this hike. Tricycle took me to the saddle, which overlooks Batad. Road construction is ongoing towards the village so glad I had the opportunity to visit before it reaches there. Once in the village you have the option of visiting a waterfall and take a swim, before the hike back to the top. The views were amazing and... More

I did a one day hike of the Barad rice terraces down to the waterfall. The hike was challenging in the heat, but very doable and enjoyable. There was a mixture of abilities and fitness levels within our group but the tour guide went at just the right pace for everyone. Stunning scenery and a dip in the pool at... More

The rice terraces are absolutely breathtaking, and the cold water under the waterfall sooo refreshing after the long hike in. Just dont put your head underwater. My friend and I jumped in off some rocks and both have nasty eye/sinus infections. Enjoy, just beware.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time in Batad. We took the overnight bus and arrived in Banaue, then took a van we found in the central part of town to the Saddle for 150pesos. Definitely leave your bag in Banaue, we took our big bags with us and although the hike wasn't that hard, we didn't need all... More

It's been awhile since I did my last hike. So, when I decided to join a group heading to Batad-Banaue rice terraces, it was really a challenge but truly a rewarding one. We made reservations at the Ohayami transit (Lacson ave. near espana UST) 550/head one way. It would be wiser and cheaper if you will be going with a... More
