Tappiyah Falls, Banaue
(4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Follow narrow pathways and steep staircases to arrive at the majestic Tappiyah Falls. Start the route in Batad Village and climb paths through the rice terraces, where you’ll be greeted by friendly locals who are hard at work. The trek will take you up and down plenty of steps, which have been carved into the rocks along hair-raising paths on the edge of cliffs. After a demanding trek, you’ll be ready to dive into the ice-cold waters upon arrival at the picturesque waterfall. Although suitable for all fitness levels, the route is considered strenuous. Bring plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout the journey. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Tappiyah Falls and many more Banaue attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Banaue holiday planner.

  • Very cold water, from Batad Highest View point to the falls will take approximately 1 hour. Rocks and stones are very slippery and you might need a waterproof shoes.
  • If you do the terraces, you done the hard part. Finish the hike and cool off in the falls
  • It was the hardest trail that I had experienced so far but it was worth it. Trust me. It is so scenic. Check the photo that I have posted.
  • Very Nice Place....I really love this Place😃
  • Beautiful waterfall! Totally worth the hike.
