Banaue Rice Terraces Walk

Banaue Rice Terraces, Philippines

The Banaue rice paddies are intricately terraced structures dug out from the steep sided mountains of the Cordillera in northern Luzon. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the terraces are spread across several valleys. It is thought the terraces date back at least 2,000 years and they are an excellent irrigation system for the rice paddies. You have to walk along the rims of the terraces to keep your feet dry, in some places hopping from rock to rock. Be sure to keep your balance!

The Batad terraces are considered to be the best preserved and they descend for 300m or more. The walk out of the rice paddies contours round forests and is very scenic. A classic two-day walk takes in Batad, Pula and Cambulo, or alternatilvey you can explore the terraces at Hapao, laid out like patchwork.
