Tappiyah Falls, Banaue

4.6
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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Banaue vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Awesome falls. Be there early to avoid massive crowds
  • The view was breathtaking. The hike to and from the falls was quite a challenge but the reward of seeing the view of the falls and the Batad rice terraces was great.
  • beautiful falls on the other side of batad rice terraces. warning: the climb back up the hill is long and tough so you should be in relatively good shape otherwise you will find this difficult as it is quite steep. in saying that though there are actual steps and railing most of the way. there is a lovely viewpoint and you can decent further down and go for a swim.
  • Beautiful waterfall and a great place to refresh after the walk around the rice fields. Even though the trek there is surprisingly long, it's definitely worth it.
  • Love it. Wasn't able to take a dip after getting exhausted from a long trek but overall experience was marvelous!
