About Bangaan




Bangaan, like Batad, has an amphitheater-shaped rice terrace slope, though on a less grand scale.

Easier to visit than Batad

I recommend Bangaan to travelers who are unable to visit Batad because of time or fitness limitations. Bangaan is also a must-see for those who have been to Batad.

Best photo vantage

It is from the road, just before you reach Bangaan (see my photo).

Final leg

It's an easy 15-minute hike from the road down to the Bangaan village.


Local, basic lodging is available. Or, you can visit Bangaan as a daytrip from Banaue.

Other attractions near Banaue

They include:


It has stone-wall rice terraces (most other areas have clay walls).

Poitan Village

This settlement is known for its artisan weaving and wood carving.

Guihob Natural Pool

The cold mountain-spring pool is a refreshing dip on hot-humid days.


It's renowned for its hanging coffins and many caves. Note: This destination is too far from Banaue for a daytrip.
