This is really something! 2000 years old and still in used. Also the waterfall was the clim worthwhile. Don't book your trip with people's lodges. The gids was horrible, didn't know anything.

With the help of our guide, Vicente, we hiked to Tappiya Falls. The scenery was spectacular. Vicente was great with our 6 year old daughter and carried her whenever it was a bit too steep. We stayed overnight and could have watched the view and the colours change with the clouds for ages. The only negative was that there was... More

The Batad rice terraces are lovely! You shouldn't miss out if you are in the cordillera region! We just went with the tourist office of Banaue, but probably there are way more ways to go there. If you have enough time, stay there for a night. Unfortunately, we couldn't do that :( we still feel sorry for it!

A thousand meters above sea level, this seemingly natural man-made wonder is as colossal as the mountain that holds it - working together with the charm of the surroundings and the comforting chill a day or two here is truly reminiscing. Don't forget to visit Tappiya Falls and Awa Viewdeck. Bangaan Rice Terraces is also nearby.

This place has been in my bucket list for the longest time now. And the place is really beautiful beyond measure or words. The rice terraces were majestic to say that it is just beautiful is an understatement! I did not expect the arduous hike, thus regretting the fact that I was practically a couch potato a few days before... More

Worth the trike ride to the Saddle and the hike from there. The hike to the waterfall - 500p for a guide (we split it with another couple) - was beautiful and worth it. The waterfall and stream was very cold but nice and refreshing after the hike. Make sure you bring your swimsuit or clothes you can swim in,... More

I'd definitly recommend to go with Irene on tour, because she is very helpful, and gives you very detailed and interesting information about Batad rice terraces, the people, and environment.

We stayed 2 nights in Batad and did: TREKKING up to the highpoint viewing deck in another mountain across to see a good view of the rice terraces (that's 1,000 feet down THEN 1,000 feet up trekking narrow passages, THEN back the same route). Difficulty level for AMATEUR trekkers - 5/5. Wear proper trekking gear! This is pretty challenging. Walking... More
