Banaue Rice Terraces
The Banaue Rice Terraces are no less of a Cultural Treasure of the great Philippines and stands out as one of the outstanding Natural Wonder of the World, as categorized by most of the Filipinos.The terraces are located in the remote areas of the Philippine Cordillera mountain range on the northern island of Luzon, Philippine archipelago. These rice terraces are found in the mountainous expanses of Ifugao and also in the northern Luzon Island for about 2,000 years and even before that.
The real motive of having the terraces was to bring in a practical solution to the tricky rice growing phenomenon on a suitable piece of land. The terraces ascend to over fifteen hundred meters above the sea level.
