One of the most amazing views I've ever seen. Take decent hiking shoes; you'll be doing a lot of walking.

Just ask for directions a lot and you'll get there eventually.

This is about 20 kilometers and a 30 minute hike from Banaue town. At the end of the road - a few kilometers from the so-called Batad Saddle Point - one has to get off to walk on still under construction road and a foot path that leads to Batad Village. Batad Village immediately offers the view of this amphitheater-like... More

We visited Batad right after our visit in one village. You`ll see the falls and It was a long walk and tiring way but you will be amazed with the view and the falls.

This takes some effort to get to, but it is well worth it. You have to be able to walk / hike a good deal. The terrain is somewhat challenging. We had a great tour guide which made all the difference.

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
