“Hot Spring hike difficult for older folks”

Hapao Rice Terraces
Ranked #3 of 14 things to do in Banaue
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

The jeepney ride to Hapao was very bumpy and muddy since the roads were being repaired. The hike to the hot spring was long and difficult for older folks. There are some portions of the hike where you have to walk on the rice paddy borders made of stones. If you lose your balance, you either fall into the mud or the next level down, or a cliff. But it is worth the hike. I just wished they would warn you about the challenges of the hike, since we had someone with us who had arthritis. You go through a school for small children, as well as homes of residents and you get to see how they live.

Because these terraces are located a lot lower than the Banaue and Batad terraces, the chances are that you will have better weather/sight in the wet season.

Walking through these fields can be really meditative. There are beautiful lookouts throughout the walk. And you can easily combine it with a trip to the hotspings. The hike is far less intense than a hike through the Banaue fields and the views are quite different as well.

This was our first stop. The road was crazy bumpy and muddy. We encountered some huge mudslides that our tricycle somehow drove through and one that closed the road. We had to walk because the mudslide closed the entire road. The Hapao terraces was really nice. Seemed newer than Batad and the concrete walkways were more even so the walk in the rice terraces was easier. If your tricycle gets stuck, get out and push it!
