Fantastic place to visit providing the weather is on your side, we had a lot of rain during our stay but made the most of a morning window of sunshine to travel by tricycle to Batad. Great walk around the rice terraces, much easier to walk on compared to Banaue and we were able to manage without a guide. We... More

The views are excellent and the hike is a great workout. The history is fascinating as well. Get a guide and stop for lunch.

you would not believe you were in the tropics as at 6500 feet the weather at night is quite chilly so do take along a fleece.It was sad to see several terraces that have become neglected as todays generation have no interest in working the terraces.However they are still unique and well worth the visit.

I scheduled Banaue as the last stretch of my trip after a month in Boracay and Palawan. If you're anything like me you'll probably feel some ambivalence about leaving the beaches and hot weather of the islands for a cold place with many stairs. If I could give you once piece of advice it would be GO . You won't... More

I visited the Batad Rice Terraces in November 2014 and stayed overnight at Raymond's pension. I have travelled to many place around the world, but this was super special. To access the village, our G Adventures group had to hike for approximately 1 1/2 hours. The hike was fair overall, even with my bad knee. We were served an amazing... More

With a local guide you get to walk on the rice terraces and to learn a lot about the history, watch the people implant/grow rice. Definitely a must see when in the area.

We went on a tour of Batad Rice Terraces with our guide Lolo. The Jeepney trip from Banaue is a little windy but manageable. It takes about an hour to trek in to the rice terraces from the dropoff point but the views are spectacular. We ventured to the middle of the mountain view point. Lolo advised us that it... More

So proud of our province! Yes, I am an Ifugao. This is the most famous site but there are a lot more (much, much nicer rice terraces) also, if you have the time, you can visit the Yamashita Shrine in Kiangan.

This amazing wonder is a definitely one of the mus-tsee places that The Philippines has to offer. Don't miss the stunning viewpoint.
