very hard to get there as many roads are 1 lane only, if you are driving and a truck comes you will back up so the truck can drive around. you need only 4 wheeler as cars have tendency to hit big stones on the road

Now easy to get to, just a 30 mins roughish (in places) walk from the end of a concrete road. Find a place to have a coffee and just take in the vista, well worth it.

Beyond my words can describe. Magnificent. The grandeur of Nature. I have been there more than 10 times I think. 4 just this year. That's how much I love the place. It's simply breath-taking. Even after being there more times than I can count.

If you are prepared for a ridiculously tough but ridiculously awesome experience, you need to tke the long hike up, though and down into the Batad Rice Terraces. My group and I hiked for a grueling 8 hours with a nice hour long lunch which was prepared once a spotter noted we were beginning our hike back from the waterfall... More

Really, really beautiful view of the panoramic terraces. Worth to hike to the waterfall (probably possible without a guide), to get a 180 degree view.

If you want to see some beautiful rice terraces and want to take a night bus to come up here it is definitely worth to see it. Right in the bus a tour operator ("covered" as someone working for Ohayami bus) gives you information what you can do. You also get a free lift to the "city centre" to inform... More

Amazing collaboration of nature and man if without eyesores of tin roof houses dotting some rice terraces. Aside from a tour guide, always bring walking sticks, water, bits of foods to refuel tired body since it would take about 4 hours of hiking to and fro from Saddle Point to the accessible edge. Be always careful and cautious of every... More

One of the many beautiful rice terraces on the long drive through the Cordilleras. Beautiful views. There are many beautiful such impressive terraces, some can be explored on foot. Bring sturdy foot ware and a walking stick.
