Tour description

Duration: 5 Days / 4 Nights

Route Summary : Manila -Baguio – Sagada – Bontoc – Banaue – Batad – Banaue – Manila.

(*) Provided you have a good level of physical fitness (expect unpaved and narrow mountain trails with steep irregular terrain, usually under a hot sun) and should you wish to trek for three further demanding hours we can offer you:

a) the Tappiya waterfall after Batad.  With a phenomenal 70 metre fall in rainy season and a naturally formed pool at its bottom suitable for a cooling swim ( dress conservatively), Tappiya waterfall is an unique location in the area.

b) Banga-an village instead of Batad. Banga-an village showcases a typical Ifugao community. Wet weather causes damage so the steps need constant renovation. You are rewarded with spectacular views.

Optional extensions available to add on to this tour. We would be pleased to arrange these for you upon request:

a.) Witness the historic, old Spanish towns Vigan and Laoag.

b.) Visit Lingayen Gulf and go half day island hopping amongst the Hundred Islands

c.) Witness remote Kalinga

d.) Go trek Mount Pinatubo Volcano

e.) Visit Subic, Philippines’ former US Naval Base and now a freeport zone.

The rest of the distance is on foot using a mountain trail. The trip to Barangay Batad in Banaue, to witness the amphitheater shaped terraces located at 3600 ft., takes only a 30 minutes hike (*).
