Tappiyah Falls, Banaue

(4.7/5 based on 190 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.

  • Continue Batad rice paddies and you get down to the waterfall where you can swim; careful not to slide on slippery rocks because you might hurt ... The return was very tiring. to evaluate whether to go for those who are not trained or have trouble walking.

  • 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.
