Breath taking!!!!

A must do. It is seriously beautiful and took my breath away. If you go to the falls be prepared to walk up and down some seriously steep steps. I loved every min of this.

This is my second time to visit Batad and it is always a pleasure to see the stunningly beautiful rice terraces. When we visited, the terraces were mostly golden and green--which was a great scenery. Definitely worth the long bus ride from Manila. The first time I visited, the road heading towards Batad was bumpy but now it's already cemented... More

It is about an hours tricycle ride from Banaue to Batad. It is a pretty tough walk up along the rice terraces if you are not fit. You are walking along the edge of the terraces and it is quite steep so you need to be careful. It is worth it as the rice terraces are stunning, especially as in... More

Never miss the opportunity to visit the place. You will be taking a trek to reach the place but you will be awed by its natural beauty compared second to none. I like to compare it to a Roman amphitheater, you are being engulf with the beauty of the rice terraces. It is definitely an awesome adventure while in Philippines.

I've been here twice now, it's absolutely stunning. If you're lucky to come when the rice crops are at their peak green, you're never going to forget this place. And if the rice terraces weren't enough, you can trek down to the waterfall, very refreshing about after your hike and very beautiful. I recommend staying in Batad for a night... More

These are some of the most awe-inspiring rice terraces I've seen. It does take a hike to get there as the road does not lead all the way to the village. After a night bus to Banaue, jeepny to Batad we arrived exhausted but were keen to trek up to the viewing point and make the trek to the waterfall... More

Our guide Mean Chorhangon was awesome. She made sure to remind us to have fun on our hike- She helped my... More

Just recently been there, but then again I was mesmerize by it's picturesque view. The green terraces are everywhere. The moment I reach Banaue these stairways were the first thing that caught me. The people there are nice too. Oh, just simply amazing.

This was the perfect place for a day of hiking and exploration. It is an easy (sometimes slippery) hike down, followed by an intense hike back up. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a bathing suit to swim in the waterfall at the bottom.

From Randys Brookside inn it takes about 40 minutes to Batad. You can go by tricycle which can reach the saddle point now. From there it takes about 25 minutes walk to viewing platform. Then I recommend to trek further to the terraces and waterfall. I was there while the temperatures reached 38 - 40 degrees - I was really... More
