The view of the Banaue Rice Terraces is magnificent. You'll see how the ancient tribes created this natural wonder thousands of years ago. We went during harvest time that's why the terraces were not as green as other would have seen it.

Not many people go to Banaue at this time of the year due to the "definitely foggy" weather that can obscure the scenery; we were just lucky to arrive early in the morning (Dec 21, 2012) riding the Omahiya bus from Sampaloc, and after a quick meal at the People's Restaurant (cheaper than Jollibee's) was able to shoot pictures at several viewing spots by paying a tricyle driver 200 php. At the last stop on the way down, the fog started to descend quickly hiding the magnifiscent view. The rice terraces were not kept as well as before due to the cost of farming the small plots using only spade and hoe. (Tractors or even carabaos cannot work on the narrow rice paddies.) And the few terraces that are being worked at are just beginning to be planted at this time of the year, since they have just harvested the former crop. But a trip to Baguio, passing by Bontoc, where the rice terraces are green with rice (plants) will compensate for the loss of the view.

These rice terraces were REALLY nice, the viewpoints are very easily accessible,

BUT, I am really happy that on the first day I was in Banaue I did a quick tour with the viewpoints (we did it in 1.5 hour), and on the second day we did a tour to Batad. Batad is definitely a must-see!! Banaue and Batad together really made it a nice experience for us, it's the combination that did it.

For anyone who just wants to stand at the top and view this amazing site....you're missing 90% of the experience. Make sure you are fit before you travel here but you really must hike the terraces. Get a guide in the village tourist center and go for it!
