Information about Banga-an Village
Bangaan is a farming village located not far from Banaue, where its rice terraces became well-known due to its stunning views. With many old houses still intact, the village has become a heritage site. There isn't a lot of capital here, and the population is tiny.
There is only one guest house, Bangaan Family Inn & Restaurant, on the road overlooking the village. It is a picturesque spot to spend the day and night, as well as an alternative to Banaue's town center. It is about two kilometers past the Batad junction on the main road to Mayoyao. The accommodations are simple but comfortable. The cottages have spectacular views of the valley, the village, the farmland, and the nearby mountains.
Best time to visit
March to May is the best time to visit Bangaan Terraces because it will allow you to see the green terraces to the fullest.
