This place will give you your best memory of Batanes. It is just so beautiful that every photo would be great for your ig. We visited on the month of December. It is really cold and windy. I felt like we can fall off the hill because of the strong winds. You can just stay here and watch the ocean... More

All of Batanes is captivating. There isn't just enough time to savor the many wonderful views and Marlboro Hills is one of them. We spent more than 2 hours in this picturesque place and left wanting more.

So breathtakingly beautiful. The best experience in our Batanes trip. Feel of being on top of the world! The breeze so refreshing. All 360 degrees of view plus down under. Great for groupie pictures too. Be prepared to hike but doable.

I would say that kinda risky place that I have been to in Batanes was Racuh a Payaman or Marlboro Country. I have to hold firmly on the ground as to not to be sweep away by the all-powerful wind coming through and from. But still, it was a delightful experience considering it was natural as though you are riding... More

I wish I still had the stamina and limbs to walk all the way where my feet could reach. It was a very windy but calming experience to be in the middle of the vast greenery dotted by different animals that feed on the grass. This is a must see, feel and be there experience in Batanes.

I can still recall where you can see the farthest island of Batanes which is the Mavudis island, you can also see the Itbayat Island, the West Philippine Sea and the Pacific Ocean. So reminiscing

The hills offer a panoramic view of the Pacific ocean and the anjacent hills. It can be quite windy though. Definitely a must visit when you go to Batanes.

A photographer's dream, a traveler's escape, a child's playground. Magnificent! A romantic view plus moderately cold weather plus the sound of giant waves. Ahhh! This is a perfect place to unwind. If you are a couple looking for some romantic place, or a solo backpacker craving for nature, or a group of travel-junkies who loves to take instagram-worthy photo.. Marlboro... More

I honestly wanted to sing songs from The Sound of Music when we went here! Trivia: Rakuh A Payaman is the real name of this place. A foreigner went to see this place and blurted out "It's like Marlboro Country" and from then on, they called these hills, Marlboro Hills
