Standing on the edge of a rice terrace, you feel diminutive. The views are overwhelming. It’s difficult to absorb the beauty of this place, as the terraces seem to stretch for eternity.
Banaue Rice Terraces are one of the country’s proudest cultural treasures. Layer upon layer are hand-carved ingeniously into the Ifugao mountain. It’s fascinating to believe the locals still work in the same way as they did 2000 years ago.
The weather can be unpredictable. The sky is blue like a cloudless diamond and the next moment brings rolling grey clouds and lingering fog. It’s exhilarating as your expert guide continues to zigzag you through the terraces to present infinite views.
