Banaue- Rice Terraces Escapade

Banaue is one of the province in Ifugao and a 10-hour drive from Manila...
the road leading to this town offers a majestic scenery of nature. One can definitely appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the provinces.

Here, we had seen the famous Rice terraces- considered as the "Eight wonders of the world " and has been called as " the Stairway to Heaven" An ancient sprawling man-made structure. One of the tourist spot in the country.

It is truly an amazing sight but as we had noticed, there are lots of houses nearby view point, which probably lessen the amazing view of this landscapes.

There have been signs of erosion and distortion. It's now barely planted and lose the perfect green as often seen in postcard, books or landscape painting. Many are in a sad state of disrepair. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
