If you love hiking , nature tripping, and see one of the eight (8) wonders of the World, you MUST visit this place!
I just came from this tour in Sagada and Banaue located in Mountain Province, and really , it was spectacular!
It was eight and a half hours travel from Manila to Banaue by Bus , left at 10 P.M from the terminal. We had at least 5 bus stop for restroom breaks and some coffee breaks. The trip was smooth and arrived in Banaue Hotel by 6:30 A.M.
We are greeted by local ifugaos wearing their traditional clothing and gave us welcome drinks and hotel sash.
Our first stop is to have breakfast in Imbayah Restaurant of Banaue Hotel before we proceed to our itinerary. The food was really good and you can see the view of Rice Terraces ( Carved on the mountain side by hand, an engineering marvel and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Some people call these rice terraces the “stairways to Heaven” ) from the glass windows of the restaurant!
After a heavy breakfast, we proceed to our hotel room. A twin sharing bed with mountain view from the balcony! I can also see the swimming pool on the right side of the balcony. Though no T.V in the room , I enjoyed the view. Restroom with hot and cold for shower. For me, the room is nice and I really love the bed, very comfy 🙂 !
Our tour started at 9:00A.M. , left the hotel for Banaue Museum. We traveled using a local jeepney as our mode of transportation and toured by local guide.
