'So sorry to ruin the beautiful view, but this is the only one I have that captured the whole scenery. This viewdeck was one of our stops during the trail run. Then we had to descend and run through the paddy fields. It was EPIC. 🙆♀️
In today’s world, where everything new is birthed by the unstoppable technological growth, how about we stop and give some love to our greatest ancestors, who built this planet’s wonders, out of practically nothing?
Sourced from Wikipedia: “The Banaue Rice Terraces. . . are terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by the ancestors of the indigenous people. The terraces are occasionally called the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand.”

When most people think of the Philippines they think of azure water and paradise archipelagos. I kick off my series on the country with something slightly different. We went to Banaue in northern Luzon to go trekking for 3 days, much to the dismay of my other half. When we arrived, after getting over the fact that there were endless terraces with basic buildings built into the side of them, we noticed how few tourists were present. Perhaps we saw a total of maximum 20 other travellers in our time there. Maybe because it wasn't peak season but it definitely wasn't as packed as the other places, despite the fact we kept moving, life seemed slower. We spent the 3 days trekking with our host and gained a brief insight into life into the mountainous rice terraces. This photo is of the town of Banaue with the sun setting over with a street vendor tending to a fire as a tricyclist travels past.

Have you ever taken a university lecture or attended an opera performance in an amphitheatre like this?
There are few rice terraces in the world that can rival those of Batad in terms of architectural and aesthetic brilliance.
These rice terraces were hewn from the steep hill slope by the hand of man and what a project it must have been. Was it a labour of love or a labour of practicality?Were they attempting to create a work of art or was that just incidental?
Do you think the original creators ever anticipated that tourists from all the over world would one day come to marvel at their handiwork, thus allowing some of the villagers to find an alternative means of subsistence that doesn’t involve growing rice?
