  • I have asthma and proud of myself for reaching the highest point of Batad :), wasn't able to see the falls so stayed in the store and waited for my friends to come back. One of the most memorable hike...  more »
  • I visited the Batad Rice Terraces via the overnight bus, toured the entire day upon my arrival, and then left that night on the overnight train back to Manila. The Terraces are literally mind boggling...  more »

  • Among the most amazing sights I have ever seen. We spent a whole day walking around in the rice terraces trying to take in this incredible sight. These rice terraces beat all the other rice terraces I have seen, partly due to the scenery and partly due to them being constructed by the small rocks the locals used to build the walls of the terraces. Must visit.
  • Travelled here in October. Most of the terraces had been harvested but still plenty colourful and worth the 9-10 overnight bus ride.
  • So beautiful. Take your time and enjoy the ambiance
  • One of the most amazing places in the world!!
  • the most beautiful rice terraces in this area.
