Batad takes pride of it's one of a kind rice terraces - walls made of stones and looks like an amphitheatre. It is the only rice terraces that uses stones for it's walls. And as if the rice terraces is not magnificent enough, nature endowed Batad with a beautiful Tappiyah waterfalls deep in the mountains. The trek to the rice... More

After trekking for few hours, the views that this place has are unbelievable. And when you get to walk on terraces you really get your moneys worth. We had a guide, but you could do without if you are brave enough!

I'm a person who likes to be active when I travel and this was perfect for me. We did a two day hike with a guide. The first day was 7 hours of easy hiking in magnificent terrain. We stayed the night in Cambulo. Be warned this is a village so your shower is a bucket with a spoon. The... More

Like visiting an ancient world. The village and terraces are a wonder, beautiful , peaceful . We both gasped out loud at our first sight of the terraces. It is a trek and climb from the road taking about an hour , if you don't stop ,requiring a good level of fitness. The additional trek to the waterfall 592 steep... More

Batad rice terraces is unbelievably beautiful. You have to see it to see and feel the beauty. Can't imagine how the Ifugaos created this rice terraces 2000 years ago, carrying stones from the river to support the terraces. Be prepared to walk up and down the rice paddies. Wear good walking shoes and dry fit clothes as the trek includes... More

I was excited to bring a group of foreign tourists in Batad. Well, Batad's amphitheater-like rice terraces is stunningly beautiful, even if it is just viewed from one of those inns in the village. Definitely worth the trip.

I visited Batad on a day trip from Banaue for 900 php per person (guide fee) and can say that it was worth the price for a 4-5hour tour. The rice terraces in Batad are without a doubt far more impressive than those of Banaue, even in January, when planting has just begun and many of the terraces are just... More

The view is breathtaking and spectacular. The walk to the upper observation point is quitr easy. However, walking into the terraces themselves, and further to the nearby waterfall is more difficult.
