BATANES Pure & Timeless
DETAILS: This tour will show you Batanes robust landscape, steep cliffs and rolling grasslands. Witness communities full of intact stone houses (as old as 1887) and their unique traditional cogon rooftops, bestowing you with a feeling of timelessness. Of the 11 cool and windy islands comprising the Batanes group, only three are inhabited: Batan, Sabtang and Itbayat. The island “Sabtang” is probably one of the most known preserved sites of Batanes and testimony to the surviving Ivatan culture with their typical headwear “suots”.
