We trekked for 3 days staying overnight in Cambulo and Batad. Fantastic trek, the rice terraces are really impressive. If you have a problem with heights or balance you may want to choose your route well in advance. Highly recommended.

amazing view of the UNESCO world heritage sites, easily accessible using affordable tricycles from the town or arranged via the hotel. A trek down into the villages will add into the experience.

Stayed the night in Batad, as opposed to the quick visits that most people do, which gave me a chance to explore more & nicely switch off from city life. Rice terraces are very impressive, would like to have seen them green though, but they...More

Though not as breathtaking as Banaue Rice Terraces, it still is wonderful to behold. The Mountain Province is really amazing and offers jaw dropping landscapes but also boasts of treacherous Racine's and landslide prone areas so driving should be done carefully.
