Batad was a whole new experience for me. I decided I would take on something new and more value to myself.
Batad is a barangay in Banaue in the Ifugao province. It required us to travel down a bumpy road for over an hour, then walk further down for another hour.
As this was the start of our day, we were dying for some real food! Good thing Ramon Homestay does not only boast of fantastic view, but also of freshly prepared food.
After a quick meal (it was quick because we ate like we haven’t eaten in days), we got some coffee. Their fresh mountain coffee are soooooo good, it’s aroma was rejuvenating.
After a hearty meal and appreciation of the view, we retreated to our abode.
For dinner, we had almost same meals. But this time, instead of coffee after meal, Mang Ramon, our gracious host and business owner, started a bonfire. We then began with a sort of open discussion about Ifugao legends and traditional way of life.
Waking up in the awe-inspiring view of rice terraces is the best way to start your day.
