One of the nine towns of Ifugao Province, Banaue is world-famous and one of the must-visit places in the Philippines. Its Rice Terraces, which are spectacular terraces carved out from mountain ranges some 2000 years ago by the Ifugao indigenous people, are often referred to as the 8th Wonder of the World and declared as a World Heritage Site.

Famous for its amphitheater-like terraces, Batad is one of the most well-maintained rice terraces in the region.

Marvel at the stunning views of rice fields below as you enjoy lunch on one of the rice terraces.

After lunch, embark on another trekking adventure to visit the Ifugao huts. The climate is cold owing to high altitude, and walking into the mist is almost like hearing breathy whispers from beyond.

After lunch, travel back to Banaue and take a good 45-minute hike from the town proper to reach the Banaue Rice Terraces Viewpoint. Marvel at the breathtaking view of the terraces and snap amazing photos to capture the panorama.

Take a quick detour to Banaue Market and see shops offering items created from wood. Wood carving has been practiced by the locals for centuries and they are well-known for their craftsmanship in this art.

When the day ends, proceed to People Lodgewhere you will be accommodated for the night.

Day 4

Start your day with a lovely breakfast and then venture out into the north western part of the Ifugao province to the Hapao Rice Terraces in Hungduan.
