Drive to Batad from Banaue hotel is about 45-60 mins can be very scary because of the winding zig-zag roads that only experts who are familiar with the roads should maneuver. However, once you get to the end of the road, it's a 20-min one...More

View is great from entry area. An assisted walk to the terraces is better and more informative. Nice to schedule a walk during harvest season.

I ended up in Batad by accident, learning about it from a local in the nearby town of Banaue. Did not regret it. Majestic landscapes, incredible culture, beautiful sceneries. Oh, and the locals with their rice wine! It's a must have experience if you're visiting...More

I overcame my fear of heights to walk along the terraces because it was just too beautiful to sacrifice a panoramic view.

Hello! Does anyone know if bringing a big backpack 75L is going to be hard on the Jeepney and the walk into and out of Batad? If yes, can anyone recommend a place in Banaue to leave the big backpacks while we go to Batad? I was not planning on spending the night in Banaue so I am not sure if any guesthouses would let me leave my bags there at all. Thank you!!
