Located in Ifugao province in Northern Luzon, the Banaue rice terraces are often referred to as the eight wonder of the world. These impressive terraces were created by hand over a period of about 2,000 years. Home for the Ifugao people this is truly an amazing place to visit. At an altitude of about 1,200 meters it also presents a nice escape from the hot and humid environments common through much of the rest of the country.
These photos were taken with a first generation digital camera in 1999. A return to Banaue is definitely called for!
