Batad - THE Heaven

|
Words can make no justice to this place... Even my amateurish pics...It has to be felt... experienced... lived... The remoteness of this place... The Rice terraces... The Tappiyah waterfalls... The Ifugao tribe... all make this place a truly magical one... That’s why regarded as Eight Wonder of the World by many... One has to be there to appreciate it.... the 2000 yr old work by the Ifugao tribes...























How to Get there --> From Manila, one can take the daily buses operated by the Florida Liner or the Autobus from Cayco St, Sampalao City, Manila direct to Banaue(450 Pesos)... There are so many Rice terraces nearby, but due to time constraint we planned only Batad... The Best of them all... From Banaue, u can hire a Jeepney to reach Batad... Jeepney is a must as it’s an hour and half ride from Banaue to Batad (2000 Pesos. Two ways)... Hire a guide as well if you have to make it fast. Normal charge is around (900 to 1200). From the drop point it’s an hour or so trek to the Batad village. U can see the beauty and the hard work for your self... Pretty good food available in Batad itself... prepared by the locals... From there its another 40 mins to the waterfalls...
















Tappiyah Waterfalls: The best waterfalls I have seen till date... Secluded... Virgin u can say... Not many tourists ... actually we were the only ones when we went there...U can feel the force of it once u get in the water...
