Behind the Banaue Rice Terraces

Taking photographs with the background of the magnificent Banuae Rice Terraces is such a different experience. It’s something that I can be proud of. Not of all of us have the privilege to see up-close this wonderful landscape.

The Banaue Rice Terraces or Hagdan-hagdang Palayan ng Banawe are 2,000-year old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao, Philippines by our ancestors of the Batad Indigenous people. It has been recognized as one of the "Eighth Wonder of the World" and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
