Trip Planner: Asia / Philippines / Luzon / Cordillera Region / Ifugao Province / Banaue / Banaue Rice Terraces
Hand-carved into the slopes of Ifugao Mountain over the course of 2,000 years, Banaue Rice Terraces form a spectacular cultural landscape and a World Heritage Site that has evolved through countless generations. Soaring up to 1,500 m (4,921 ft), these labor-intensive terraces with masonry retainer walls follow the contours of the mountains like high-precision isolines on a geographical map. Take a walk from Banaue's main road and stop at numerous viewpoints along the way, or hire a guide for a more thorough tour. Marvel at the maze of terraces slinking around the slopes, which have been feeding the area for centuries. One of the oldest man-made structures on the island, it is widely considered by Filipinos as the eighth wonder of the world.

Can you imagine? This is manually tilled by our ancestors? You could really find hard workers here since they plant and get the output by steep walkways and high flight of stairs with heavy items. It is still amazing even though its raining
I visited in November 2019. Fab views even in the rain. If you need a good local guide, ask for Fena.
