Let's spend two days hiking these beautiful rice terraces

We will be spending three days visiting two of the best Terraces in the Cordilleras.

The Banaue Rice Terraces are a National Cultural Treasure of the Philippines and are considered to be the 8th Natural Wonder of the World by many Filipinos. The terraces are carved in the mountains of Ifugao and were most likely done by hand. The terraces were first constructed as a practical solution to the problem of growing rice on land that falls away in front of you at vertigo-inducing angles.

Batad is a remote village of around 1, 500 people in Ifugao province. It's said to be home to the best and most well-preserved rice terraces in the Cordillera region. These terraces are between 2, 000-6, 000 years old and have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Do note that Batad is so remote that there's virtually no cellular service let alone internet access anywhere in the village. There are no roads or motorized vehicles either.
