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.

The weather in Ifugao during the ber-month is really cold. One of the clothes I considered first to put on my travelling bag is the jacket. It's been a long time I use my Cedarwood blue jacket with hood. Most of my escapades are in beach that's why I don't bring jacket or sweater. The cloth of this jacket is 100% pure cotton. It has breathable layer styles and comfy hood.

The green aztec sando and camouflage short are from a boutique in Tutuban Mall. It looks a summer attire but this outfit is the best for trekking. The color really compliments with  the color of nature.

I’m expecting to have long trekking in my Ifugao-Sagada adventure. I need to have a footwear that can perform well in the intense walking in rough road and rocky river. It’s my first time to wear shoes from Sandugo Sandals. I must say it's a good pair of shoes. The shoes is very light and comfortable to feet. It has mini-cushion and has holes at the footpads.

Wearing accessories is really a must for me. Everytime I have out of town, I see to it I’m wearing watch and bracelets. The brown watch and bracelets are from SM Accessories. The skull necklace is from skullcandy.

What I'm wearing: jacket (Cedarwood), tank top  and short (no brand) shoes (Sandugo Sandals), watch and bracelet (Sm Accessories),  necklace (skulcandy)
