After 25281229 steps later...

The trek to and from this falls is exhausting that one of my friends loudly asked why are we doing this to ourselves hahaha! After the balancing act we did on the terraces, we now faced uneven stairs and boulders going down and lunged at the same going up. Too much exercise in 1 day! Too bad the water is freezing cold, feels like we will die of hypothermia if we try to take a dip. Not one of us even dared put our feet to the water. Bring lots of energy, water, walking stick and a drone. That view is so worth the body pains we felt the next day :) .

Batad, Banaue, Ifugao is a small village with not more than 500 local population. It's also quite unpopular yet that's why the number of tourists aren't that much. Fun fact: Almost everyone in the community are related to each other which makes Batad one of the coolest places I've ever visited. You'll be amazed with how locals are very nice and hospitable with their tourists, too! Small but amazing.

After trekking at the highest point of Batad Rice Terraces, we trekked downhill to Tappiya Falls. It is Batad's hidden gem. Truly, the are no shortcuts to any place worth going, as popularized by Beverly Sills because it'll take you an hour of trekking through steep slopes, muddy trail, rocky roads and also a test of body balance with a bonus, the breathtaking view of Batad Rice Terraces.

Upon reaching the few steps to the falls, you'll be welcomed by the soothing sound of the current's slap. Get yourself rewarded also by dipping yourself in it's ice-cold water!

If you find the photo captivating, it is waaaay more beautiful when you visit it personally! You shouldn't miss this in your entire life, I promise.
