Explore Banaue Rice Terraces | Trekking with Jeepney Ride Experience

This amazing Eighth Wonder of the World, has been functioning as rice paddy terraces for the Igorot tribes living in the rugged North. These steps were carved out of mountains in prehistoric times using sheer brawn. With their fierce culture, even now the Igorots tend to the terraces and perform ancient rituals linked to the cosmic force that inspired their farming ancestors to build this sustainable technology—a truly original feat of engineering.

Batad Rice Terraces Tour

After breakfast, meet the instructor and drive with a jeep to the point where you will start walking towards the village of Batad. Jeepney is a vehicle used for public transport in the cities of the Philippines and looks like the jeeps used by the American army. Visiting the rice terraces of Batad is a trip that requires a little more fitness. This is not a very complex trek but requires you to be in reasonable shape because the descent to the village is steep and gradual. The trek to Batad is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, an excursion that will allow you to see how the Igorots built the terraces up the amazing valley in the center of which lies the village of Batad. You will also visit the village located at the bottom of the valley as well as the Tapiya Falls located across the mountain. For those who can not continue towards the falls, this is fine, you can stay in the restaurants and guest houses upstairs. We can enjoy the magical view and experience the peace that characterizes the place. In the afternoon we will go up to the jeep (the local transport) which will take us back to the hotel. After an enjoyable and experiential day, walk towards the town of Banaue. It takes about 45 minutes to walk up the mountain. The estimated time of return will be at 16:00 or later.

Hapao Rice Terraces Tour

After breakfast, usually around 8:00 am, meet with the instructor and travel with Jeepney to drive to the fabulous rice terraces in Hapao. A visit to Hapao Rice Terraces is a light and experiential trip. To see the beauty of the terraces you have to walk among them. Along the way, you can see the rice terraces spread throughout Banaue and the surrounding area, the villages on the way and the vantage point on the terraces. Combined with the uniqueness of the flowing traffic pattern of the terraces, the currents are gathered to the watershed and form an integral and inseparable part of the ecosystem of the mountain, which enables the people of the Ifugao to grow rice at altitudes of 1,000 meters above sea level. The terraces were built using primitive tools and the ability of reason and creativity used by the Ifugao. If the vertical distance from the peak to the base is indeed examined, the rice terraces can reach impressive heights to surpass the tallest and most tall buildings in the world. In coordination with the guide, you can visit the hot springs Bogyah hot spring. An estimated return on this day is 15:00, sometimes even earlier, depending on the pace of the trip. After your trip, you will go back to hotel to get your things. Your driver will take you back to Cauayan, Isabela which takes 4 hours drive. Check in Japi Hotel and stay for overnight.

Hagit, Israel

We decided to meet in Manila (3 couples, friends reunion) and enjoy the Philippines, both Manila and an island. I took up on me to arrange it with a local tour company and after reading reviews ended up with Erez and his local team at Tourismo Filipino. I couldn't have made a better decision. Erez picked well our wishes and needs from our emails and phone conversations. he understood well the things we want to explore, our expectations from hotels and arranged it all in a great way, with looking into all the details and it all went very well. was great organized and exactly to our taste. We were looking for a nature and cultural experience and got it in a well done fashion. Erez helped a lot with his ideas about places and the pros and cons of doing things one way or another but left it all to our decisions which we liked a lot ! Both Erez and his office team were very responsive, updated us every day as needed and took care for all our needs. Everything was on time, with great comfort cars, pleasant drivers and local tour guides - everything we could have asked for. Money well spent , all of us highly recommend their service and will use the office again when we need it. The Philippines were a jewel, so we will probably be there again :) Read more
