Hanging Coffins, Sagada, Philippines

In Echo Valley are the Hanging Coffins of Sagada

Tucked in the rugged ranges of the central Grand Cordillera Mountains, where pine trees grow in the cold air and mists swirl all year round, are some breathtakingly beautiful sites that are worth the journey along winding, spiraling roads.

"We had a lovely trip - Batad is AMAZING. It is right up there with Machu Picchu. For me, MORE impressive. Leo and the drivers were excellent and really fun to be with. Thank you for all your last minute help and flexibility."

Our Philippines Rice Terraces tours take you to Banaue, Bontoc, Batad, and Sagada so you can see the stunning scenery, charming villages, huge caves and waterfalls, and amazing sights such as the hanging coffins!

Banaue Rice Terraces Tour

Banaue is located in the northern most part of the Province of Ifugao. It lies at the foot of Mt. Amuyao, the highest peak in the area, and is bounded on the north by the Mt. Province.

A Tour of the Philippines Rice Terraces will expose you to magnificent landscapes of mountains, forests, deep ravines, waterfalls, mighty rivers and bubbling streams, as well as an introduction to the mountain tribal people whose centuries-old customs, traditions and artifacts continue to fascinate the world.

The natives of the Rice Terraces are the lfugaos, who, thousands of years ago, with only simple tools and bare hands, made the Banaue Rice Terraces one of the best-known icons of Philippine tourism.

The Philippines Rice Terraces are carved out of mountainsides with several peaks rising as high as 6,000 feet.

The panorama of the terraces becomes stunning as it changes colour with the season - varying shades of green in the planting season, alternating gold and ochre tones in the harvest season, and, different hues of the sky are reflected by water in the bare fields.

Being the most extensive anywhere in the world, the Banaue Rice Terraces are listed by the UNESCO World Heritage Sites as the first "combined cultural and natural site". and are often referred to as "the eighth wonder of the world".

Staying overnight in Banaue, you can often enjoy a cultural show at a local hotel, and when dining, we recommend you try local dishes native to this part of the Philippines.

Batad Trekking

At Batad you can enjoy trekking through lush forest, walk the world-famous rice terraces, which appear before you like an amphitheatre. Next, head off to take in the sights of the amazing Tappiyah waterfalls

Combine Banaue & Sagada with Vigan and Laoag

On a North Luzon Tour, we can combine the Philippines Rice Terraces with Ilocos, perhaps via a visit to Baguio. Please enquire if you would like to experience this tour suggestion.
