As expected, the trek going back from Tappiya can be compared to a man giving birth! It was soooooo hard and painful! But it was totally worth it.
The path leading to the Village entails passing thru the rice terraces itself. Balancing is a must.
The simple life of the people of Batad is indeed admirable. They work hard on the rice fields everyday to have a bountiful harvest. The rice that is harvested is only for the consumption of the town, it is not sold to outsiders.
It was indeed a once in a lifetime experience to go to Batad and see its majestic rice terraces. Yes, it is very hard to go to this place. And I consider myself lucky to have been embraced by its culture even for a few days.
The next day, it was time to leave. And going back to Saddle Point was indeed more challenging. But hey, I was able to blog about my Batad experience…. I survived! 🙂
