Batad in Northern Philippines is known for its stone walled rice terraces. These rice terraces are so famous that it commands a UNESCO World Heritage site tag. While the rice terraces are absolutely spectacular, the mountains and the lush green tropical forests near Batad are also a sight to die for. Steep treks criss-crossing rice terraces and jungle trails leads you to some of mother nature’s most pristine views. This is one such view of a horseshoe bend in this mountain river that is located in the middle of absolutely gorgeous greenery. It is such views that make the steep ordeal a total value affair.
