Hidden and well Secluded at the back of the high-rising Batad rice terraces, are home to the famous white waters of Tappiya Falls that cascade into a natural bathing pool. To reach the falls, we had to hike a trail for about 45 minute hike from Batad. You will walk directly to on the Rice Terraces. Then go down a mountain via steep stairs, Its a difficult climb but the hike is worth the effort, however. Although, accomodations are limited and the roads are rough, visitors are rewarded at the end of the trail.
The water is cool and refreshing especially after the long trek. Although non-swimmers should be cautious because the current can be too strong at times.
You can take a dip and be refreshed on the water that gushes down to a large pool. There are also large stones a few meters away from the falls where you can sit down and admire the view. A nipa hut overlooking the falls can be used as a resting area.
