We took the option of 3 days trek (Banaue-Pula-Cambulo Day 1, Cambulo-Batad and waterfalls Day 2, Batad-Banaue Day 3) with Jercy Cabbigat, whom you can find easy on Messenger.

The trek was quite doable, with some slippery places if it have rained, and can be hot sometimes. But, the knowledge, the sens of humor, the caring and helping of Jercy truly beat all that !

We recommend 100%, the views are truly amazing and it’s nice to walk there with someone who can explain and share the daily life of this part of Philippines !

Oh man i mean, wow.. we saw a lot of rice fields or teraces. But those of banaue are the top.. it‘s breathtaking how it looks like. One field to the other, next and next to eatch other. The whole mountain.. looks awesome.. it looks so great.. if you go there please manage everything before. Also the way back to somewhere down the hill.. we had some problems..

This is a place rich in culture, history and most of all a monument human endurance and ingenuity. A blend of modern life and ancient culture is encapsulated here. Entrancing scenery, delightful people, delicious food, but treacherous trails. I would love to return to spend more time and explore more.

We did a 3 day trek Day 1- Pula Cambulo, Day 2- Batad Day 3 short hike and back to Banaue. Day 1 was a long hike, but very nice and few people. Day 2 you arrive at Batad, definitely the most picturesque terraces, but also the most crowded with many tourists. You also visit the waterfall. You are done by 2:30pm and do nothing the rest of the day. Day 3- you do a 2 hour hike (very nice hike), then go back to Banaue, so if you are taking the night bus, you have 8+ hours to kill. Unless you are looking for downtime, I would just combine this into 2 days.

I had been wanting to see these rice terraces since I heard about them as a kid. And I wasn't disappointed. Huge constructions up the sides of mountains. Built and continuously worked over 2000 years as they kept expanding further up the sides of the mountains over the years. The village and terraces are pretty remote but easier to get to now since a new road was built saving a long hike. We hiked along the top of one of the terrace walls to a lookout point and the view was amazing. We had great clear weather although it rained later in the day. The walls are thick stone and stable, but still require very careful walking. The others hiked down to a waterfall but as I am getting old, I passed on that.
I have seen the rice terraces in Longji China which are also pretty spectacular, but I think for the history, remoteness, scope, and steepness of the mountain slopes - the Batad terraces are the most amazing.

Holy crap WOW!
This place is adventure heaven! It’s massive! In fact it’s so big you can’t see where it finishes. It’s worth staying in Banaue just to see this place!
Allow 3-4hours, wear good shoes, drink plenty of water and take it slow as the highest view point requires a little courage.
A swim at the waterfall is an absolute travelers must! Enjoy

A really wonderful, tiring but all worth it experience! You get to walk by the rice terraces. Although it is a bit dangerous, it is worth the try. If u r afraid of heights just dont look down! There are viewpoints to that is very ig worthy posts.

I spent a full month touring the whole area all the way to sagada. I was lucky enough to have the best possible guide you could ever hope for. Lillian.tourist info can hook you up with her.I am close to 70 years old although I only feel 50...a walking stick is very handy to have provided by lillian. a umbrella is a good thing to have cost 190 pesos. dont walk outside at nightime unless you have a flashlite...dog poop dog poop right where you want to walk,all the time. trust me on that or your shoes will smell funny.I plan to go back there and will ask for lillian,she is so knowledgable in everything and takes her job seriously from beginning to end. ..dont be afraid to give your guide a good tip, after all its not like they are making a whole bunch of money. Internet and cell service is excellent unless of course you are way out there.A place that advertises hot showers means perhaps warm water for a few minutes maybe if you can figure out the routime...turn on the power breaker mounted a few inches from the water supply 220 volts open this valve but close that one then open up this one then turn that knob to the left or is it right...a dozen different homestays hotels seemed to be the same routine on the hot water routine...thankyou lillian so much

Given that we are at 5,000 feet above sea level, the temperature here drops to as low as 12 C, quite literally cools out heels! Weird, I love cold weather. The sticks are for rent @ Php10.00 to help you avoid from gliding due to slippery walkway going to the full view of Batad Rice Terraces. #formzventure
