Banaue Rice Terraces : Ifugao, Philippines

No trip to the Philippines could be completed without seeing the spectacular Banaue Rice Terraces.

Carved from the mountain ranges about 2,000 years ago without modern tools by the Ifugao tribes, these magnificent farm terraces resemble giant steps reaching up to the sky.

Locals to this day still plant rice and vegetables on the terraces, although more and more younger Ifugaos do not find farming appealing and emigrate to the cities.
