Banaue Rice Terraces: Visit It as Part of Your Bucket List

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Whenever one mentions Banaue, it is automatically associated with the rice terrace - the iconic image that perpetuates in everyone's mind because of the majestic landscape it offers. The sight is just too wondrous to miss within your lifetime that everyone should put a visit to Banaue Rice Terraces as part of their bucket list.

They say this stunning view, and considered as the "Eighth Wonder of the World," is viewed even better during the months between May and June, when the rice fields are at their greenest. But that would also depend on the very unpredictable weather of the Philippines. Our country is blessed but we still could not properly predict when the storm and flood would wipe out a portion of our country. Sadly, we still couldn't prevent nature from destroying lives and properties, including the rice field terraces of Benguet. Though the terraces are strategically arranged in such a way that water will be distributed the best way possible, too much rain, also causing flood waters, would still drown and cause damage to most plantation.

Banaue is a town on the Cordillera mountain range in the north of the island of Luzon, and is one of the nine towns of the Ifugao Province. It is the gateway to the rice terraces which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. We should be very proud of this recognition and thus every Filipino should visit the site to appreciate this man-made wonder accentuated by the splendor of nature.

It has earned the title of the most photographed and picturesque sight  that you could see at postcards. It is also recognized as a National Cultural Treasure of the Philippines. They are awe inspiring to say the least.

A hike across the fields would be great. Just bring enough water, and spare clothes for the long and tedious trek.For the less adventurous or fit to walk for several hours, a flying drone with camera would be an awesome way to capture the sights, and share it with the rest of the world. Just be careful you don't crash it on site as it is good as gone.

But imagine going up in a helicopter to get a better view from the top.That would be more incredible! That's the next best thing we could do for flightless humans like us. Sometimes don't you just wish you could fly like a bird and explore the fascinating Earth from above.
