It is the most amazing experience, the view and the friendly people are worth every step. There are no roads to the village or in the village. Everything is carried to the village, even every soda, it’s actually incredible. The last part of the travel...More

Just walked to the village, wasn't too hard, and I'm in terrible shape. Don't pay for parking, or too much for a guide, there's signs to some places. Worth the trip!

I doubt many visitors over 50yrs of age would come here. You do need a degree of physical fitness. Walking is basically going up or going down. I stayed at the first guest house (Batad Top Viewpoint Homestay) which is only a 15 minute walk...More

It's amphitheater-shaped indeed! Love the peace and quiet. There are lots of bugs and insects that I can't even name but they don't bite. Requires a lot of hiking just exploring the village. Like 30mins from Saddle Point to the homestays. Go to the recommended...More

As in many places the weather has become very unpredictable. But november should be about perfect, mid 20's C. Also in the middle of harvesting season, interseting! .
