Batad Rice Terraces

Batad Rice Terraces are another set of rice fields that are located in a remote village in Banaue, Ifugao, a province in the Cordillera region of the Philippines. They are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and have a unique amphitheater shape. They are surrounded by lush forests and waterfalls, such as the Tappiya Falls.

• Batad Rice Terraces are accessible by a 14-kilometer road from Banaue town proper, followed by a 30-minute hike from the drop-off point. The hike is challenging but rewarding, as it offers a scenic view of the rice terraces and the village. The village has several lodges and homestays for visitors who want to stay overnight.

• Batad Rice Terraces are a marvel of engineering and culture, as they were built by the Ifugao people using only their bare hands and simple tools. They have been cultivated for over 2,000 years and are still in use today. They also have a complex irrigation system that draws water from the mountains.

• Batad Rice Terraces are also a place of spirituality and heritage, as they reflect the beliefs and values of the Ifugao people. They consider the rice terraces as a gift from their gods and ancestors, and they perform rituals and ceremonies to honor them. They also preserve their traditional dances, songs, and costumes.
