It was a very hard trekking but I suggest this lovely experience to everyone because the terraces are wonderful: you really feel in contact with the nature!

When you get to the start of the trail to the rice terraces, dont be conned into taking a guide as they are not needed. One trail in the same out.

Really impressive amphitheatre of terraces offering stunning views. We stayed at Rita's guesthouse which was basic but run by a very friendly family. Great views from balcony over the terraces. Contacted them via Facebook and very helpful with messages. Got a 'guide' to the waterfall the other side of the terraces. Probably not really required as you can make your... More

After reading a lot of stories about getting to Batad, I'm glad to experience half of the difficulties I read online. There is now a road closer to the rice terraces so the hike is not that much far anymore. It could take you 15-20mins to get to the view deck. Although Batad looks nice any time of the year,...

Parked at the end of the road. Didn't need a guide. Hiked down a decent trail to a restaurant viewpoint deck. Didn't buy anything at the restaurant. Took pictures and left 15 pesos to say thanks. Waited until I left to pay for parking. When I arrived, it was 150 pesos. When I left, it was 50 pesos. You are... More

This will definetely give you a different perspective in life especially if you are from city. The life here looks rough but the locals make it look so simple. There is no signal in this place so it is perfect getaway when you want to disconnect.

I've always thought that Banaue was the only place in the Philippines with the rice terraces so when our very knowledgeable guide Denwill Batangog took us to Batad to hike above and among the terraces, it was a great surprise. Beautiful views and a not so difficult hike in 70 degree weather was a pleasant experience. You start above the... More
