This is an expedition to the rice terraces in North Luzon around Banawe. You get there by a looong van journey...
A Filipino breakfast in the first mornin out is powering!
Ready to go
The rice terraces are made by filipino ancestors indigenous, thousands of years ago to grow rice and use natural resources guiding water all thru the step-fields.
most probably made by hand, the terraces are considered by locals the 8th wonder of the world.
The rice terraces are a dramatic testimony to a community抯 sustainable and primarily communal system of rice production, based on harvesting water from the forest clad mountain tops and creating stone terraces and ponds
I won't talk much here about these pictures, so just enjoy them!
Morning, day after. We were exhausted after the trail.
Still early in the morning..
And we are in Sagada today.
This is a cave full of coffins with dead people. It's a kind of sanctuary, and very fresh place to rest!
Coffins also hang from mountains, like here.
Good bye sun, Banawe, all.
