Ifugao: Join the planting rice tour in Mayoyao, Ifugao this January

Remember the rice harvest tour I joined in Mayoyao, Ifugao last year? The Pochon Group is once again inviting everyone to another tour, this time, to plant rice! Join the Pfukhay Ad Majawjaw Tour (rice planting in mayoyao tour) from January 23 to 25, 2009 in Mayoyao, Ifugao. This is part of the group's advocacy to help maintain and preserve the cultural heritage of Ifugao, the rice terraces in particular. Part of the proceeds of the tour will go to the heritage trust fund that will help the people of Mayoyao safe-guard their indigenous culture.

The Pfukhay Tour allows participants to experience traditional rice planting with the Mayoyao community, witness the showcasing of the Mayoyao native music and dances, and shop in Banaue before proceeding back to Manila.

Contact Josh Nalliw at or +63 906 5308242 for inquiries. Deadline for bookings is on January 19, 2009. Here are my blog entries on the rice harvest tour last year:

Part 2: Mayoyao Rice Terraces in Ifugao
Part 3: Rice harvest experience in Mayoyao, Ifugao
Part 4: Trekking along the rice terraces of Mayoyao
Part 5: Journey across the Ifugao heartland

    Hi Ivan! Will there be a Rice Harvesting Tour if ever we cannot attend the Rice Planting scheduled for January 2009? Thanks! : )

  2. Yes, there will be one in June most probably. But due to insistent public demand, they are considering a second run of planting rice in February.

    Ah so there will be another Rice Planting in February? I might join the February leg then because January 23 is too soon for me. I still have to find moolah! Hehe! Please do update me if there will be one in February. Thanks, Ivan! : )

  6. I suggest you contact Josh Nalliw to be sure of the schedule. Thanks!
