Banaue 1999

By tim

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!
