Hand-carved into the slopes of Ifugao Mountain over the course of 2,000 years, Banaue Rice Terraces form a spectacular cultural landscape and a World Heritage Site that has evolved through countless generations. Soaring up to 1,500 m (4,921 ft), these labor-intensive terraces with masonry retainer walls follow the contours of the mountains like high-precision isolines on a geographical map. Take a walk from Banaue's main road and stop at numerous viewpoints along the way, or hire a guide for a more thorough tour. Marvel at the maze of terraces slinking around the slopes, which have been feeding the area for centuries. One of the oldest man-made structures on the island, it is widely considered by Filipinos as the eighth wonder of the world. Make Banaue Rice Terraces a centerpiece of your Banaue vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Banaue trip builder.

Like a paradise! Something out of a fairy tale. And I hope that I can go. To take my daughter to see part of the world. She is 10 and I think it would be an excellent opportunity.
