Discover one of the greatest treasures of the Philippine rainforest with this Batad Rice Terraces Trek exploring the impressive 2,000-year-old fields.
Batad Rice Terraces Trek
At the indicated time we'll pick you up from your hotel in Banaue and take a Jeepney (traditional Philippine bus) to Batad. You'll enjoy the spectacular views of the Philippine landscape during the journey that will take around 45 minutes, due to road conditions.
We'll arrive at the trail from where our trekking route will start, and walk for approximately 40 minutes to see the first hanging houses over the rice terraces that welcome you into Batad.
These impressive rice terraces were built by the Ifuago tribe 2,000 years ago. Although the system may seem outdated to us today, these fields are considered to be an engineering masterpiece and have been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our tour will be dedicated to walking through the rice fields and learning about the Batad lifestyle, a place that still preserves its traditional essence.
The tour of this area will finish by climbing to the highest point of the Batad rice terraces to admire the incredible views of the scenery.
We'll then descend for approximately one hour until we reach the Tappiya waterfall, where we'll have free time to take a refreshing bath in its natural pool.
The trekking route will end returning to the village of Batad where you can have lunch (not included) and then take you back to your hotel in Banaue.
