The Hapao Rice Terraces are quite something. It was a little rainy and misty but we decided to head out anyway, and we were not disappointed. We hired a driver and trike for the hour journey. The journey itself is quite something in a trike. Our driver stopped at all the hot spots for some great photo opportunities. When we... More

After our overnight stay in Batad, we decided to head to Hapao since we finished lunch early in Banaue and our bus leaves in the evening. We took a tricycle because it was cheaper than what our van driver to Batad was offering. You have to try to haggle with the trike driver. A trkie can fit 3 passengers with... More

If you want to see the rice terraces, we recommend to visit Hapao as well as Batad. The terraces in Hapao are beautiful. From Banaue they can be easily reached by tricycle. You can see the terraces from above, and walk along down to see them up close. Be aware that the paths are narrow and the terraces can be... More

Walk through the rice terraces to the warm springs next to a freezing river. A lovely and peaceful walk of under 1 hour. Medium grade. Really enjoyed this and different to Batad.

We stopped to view the terraces on our way to Batag, fortunately we chose the right day as the weather was kind to us. The views down the valley in the early morning sunlight were beautiful. We walked down to the top of the rice fields and took many photo's A must if you are on your way to Batag.

We booked a guide through our hotel, 3500 for van and guide, 8:30 to about 3:30. Van broke down quickly, guide hired a jeepney for rest of tour. The highlight of this tour is a 1 hour+ hike through the rice terraces to the hot springs. Walking on somewhat narrow cement walls separating the rice fields was a little tricky... More

We took a tricycle from Banuae to visit Hapao Terraces. The driver made several stops during the ride to observe the views and taking pictures. The hike to the hot spring is easy. Very nice views along the way. Hot spring is good spot for relaxing the muscles in warm water.

Although smaller than Batad these terraces are also worth a visit . The trek is gentler preparation for the climbs to and from Batad. The hot spring is wonderful, truely hot but also refreshing.
