Banaue Rice Terraces of the Cordilleras part of the North Luzon Philippines. The Rice Terraces found in the provinces of Kalinga, Apayao, Benguet, Mountain Province and Ifugao.
My posting today is giving recognation to all hard working Filipino indigenous ancestors. As a Filipino it is my pride to looking back and introduce in whole world how Filipino people start their life living in past 2,000 to 6,000 years. Maybe a lot of Filipino people forgot and cannot remember about the ancient time because the time goes fast by and more technology and places are develop now. I know a lot of people all over the world have a question what is the history of the Filipino people and how they live and what kind of culture they have. The ancient Ifugao is the one structure to firm the prehistory of theFilipino people how they survive and their life living before it become modernized.
from prehistoric of the Filipino country. When I am talking about way of living it is about how they survive of their daily life including the foods and shelter. The Rice Terraces is the symbolized of all indigenous ancestors how hard working they are and how creative and potential to built by their hand just to make a huge farm to sustain the thrives. Very amazing and very proud I cannot imagine how they change the structure of mountain into like this just to plant and leveling the rice, different crops and fruit so that it will grow well and will not damage by the flash floods of heavy rain and land slide. Isn't it a big wonder??? How beauty it is like a stair way in heaven.
The Rice Terraces is the Banaue Ancient Wonder it is referred to the Filipino of the "Eighth Wonder of the World" I hope and pleasing to preserved this mountain for other generation and as a historic appeal of all Filipino. The rice Terraces of Banaue Cordilleras are big icon of the Philippines also because has named as a world heritage site by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre in 1995. It has passed by the UNESCO standard due to the blending of the standard of physical, sociocultural, economic, religious, and political environment as a living cultural landscape. A place consider as a hot tourist spot of the world famous. It surrounded by mountains and tribal villages, it is a hiker's paradise gives a magnificent sight.
