The Vayang Rolling Hills, a picturesque landscape in Basco, Batanes, stands out as one of the province’s most iconic sights. Unlike the rugged cliffs and dramatic coastlines Batanes is known for, Vayang offers a gentler side. Lush green hills with rolling slopes, carpeted in verdant grass, create a visual feast. The wind whispers through the landscape, and grazing cows and goats add a touch of rural charm.

Beyond its scenic beauty, Vayang Rolling Hills holds significance for the local community. The verdant slopes serve as pastures for livestock, a vital part of the island’s agricultural way of life. The open space also provides a place for locals to gather and relax, a respite from the daily grind.

Nature enthusiasts and photographers won’t be disappointed at this attraction. Hike or bike along the gentle slopes, breathing in the fresh air and soaking up the panoramic vistas. The South China Sea unfolds before you, a vast expanse of tranquil blues. On a clear day, you might even catch glimpses of neighboring islands like Sabtang and Itbayat. For the best experience, visit during the dry season, from March to May. If you can, aim for late afternoon around 5 pm. The setting sun paints the sky in warm hues of orange, creating a magical scene over the rolling hills and distant islands.
