“Breathtaking waterfall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is one of the relaxing spots after the trek with Uncharted Philippines company tour guide and you can have a swim to cool off your body and feel refreshed at the same time enjoy the awesome waterfall view.

“Yes indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

If you're going to Banaue well then you HAVE to go to Batad and see the falls. There are some lodging places in Batad if you want to stay over night. But your best option is to stay in downtown Banaue and do Batad as a day trip. Bear in mind it'll be a tiring day but well worth it! Batad has no roads so you must get to the Saddle, a low point in the mountains surrounding the Batad Valley. From there you walk down into Batad, then across the valley while walking over the terraces, then you go down a few hundred steps to the falls, relax in the cool water and perhaps have a picnic lunch. So far so good. Now you have to reverse the trip only this time walking uphill. But don't let my words here turn you away from the experience. That's why you are going to Banaue, right? Here's the adventure of your lifetime, something you can tell your grandkids later on.

“Well worth the hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We saw pictures of this waterfall and wondered if this was going to be just another waterfall. We were wrong. It is an amazing sight to see in the mountains, hidden beyond the rice terraces. The hike to get there is long but well worth it.

Some of the more impressive waterfalls in the Philippines, if you're staying in Batad they are worth the hike and a swim!

“Tappiya Falls, Batad, Ifugao”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Through the meandering, steep and treacherous trail, the beauty of the Tappiya Falls awaits those who wanted to see it. The massive river fall from its brink, around 30 meters in height, is imposing. It seems that all the streams of the mountains convened together to create a gigantic spring of water. And as the river falls in full force, it creates a booming sound so domineering and so constant, but yet those who hear and see it resign themselves to its serene beauty. The mists created from its gushing could reach several meters depending on the wind direction that sometimes create a rainbow. Its water of different hues of emerald green is reflected from the surrounding lush vegetation.
