I have travelled a lot around the world and this was one of the last "back in time" left around where you can experience local living. I visited the village of Batad in November 2014 with a group from G Adventures and we stayed at the pension overnight in traditional rice huts. Currently, the only access to the village is... More

The place is stunning. If you're fit enough it's worth the hike down through the terraces to the mighty waterfalls at the bottom. We got a driver to take us to the vista/access point and he waited the full four hours or so it took us to do the trek. This place is well worth a visit

There is a reason this place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site & a reason it has perfect reviews on most sites! It's stunning and truly a magical place! There is not much more to say then, get out of Manila and stay in Banue / Batad for a bit. A trip to the waterfall is also very much worth... More

This really is physically challenging but worthwhile to swim in the cool waters of a stunning waterfall. But it is arduous - be warned!!

Amazing place, the villagers still growing their rice like their ancestors did 2000 years ago. The views are superb the tranquility, the peace the fresh air the green made the 2 hours walk worth it! Cannot miss this place if you are in the Ifugao area.

This was by far the best attraction in the whole of Luzon !! The trek was long and a bit tiring, but the views along the way were incredible!! And the dip in the waterfall was just what I needed after that long walk. Banaue also has nice rice terraces but Batad is by far better !! 5 stars

Make a hike, visit the highest point of the rice terraces, go to Junction Lana and go to the waterfall!

Batad is a village accessible only from the top of a village hill by foot. The hike is so beautiful. The batad village is based on a barter system, where people rarely use money - they exchange one good for another. Besides the rice terraces are more than 1000 years old - they were build that long ago and still... More
