Spectacular terraces were carved out from mountain ranges some 2000 years ago with primitive handtools.

Yes, it is possible but you will not enjoy the different nice places there and you and your family will be so tired. Maybe hire a private van instead of riding a public transport. I suggest you stay there overnight.
Hi, im planning on travelling from Manilla with a family member next week to Batad-Banau Terraces on the overnight OHAYAMI bus, i was wondering if guides are pre-booked, or if they are arranged on arrival? After 2-3 nights that we plan to stay in Batad-Banau we would like to go to Sagada mountain village and see the hanging coffins. I was wondering how to get here from Banau and then back to manilla. If you have any suggestions about pre booking, tour guides, mode of travel it would be greatly appreciated.
