BanaueRice Terraces
TheBanaueRice Terraces(Filipino:Hagdan-hagdang Palayan ng Banawe) are 2,000-year-oldterracesthat were carved into the mountains ofIfugaoin thePhilippinesby ancestors of the
indigenous people. The Rice Terraces are commonly referred to by Filipinos as the "Eighth Wonder of the World".[1][2][3]It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment,
largely by hand. The terraces are located approximately 1500 metres (5000ft) above sea level. They are fed by an ancientirrigationsystem from the rainforests above the terraces. It is said that
if the steps were put end to end, it would encircle half the globe. [4]
Locals to this day still plant rice and vegetables on the terraces, although more and more younger Ifugaos do not find farming appealing, often opting for the more lucrative hospitality industry
generated by the terraces [citation needed]. The result is the gradual erosion of the characteristic "steps", which need constant reconstruction and care. In 2010, a further problem was drought, with the
terraces drying up completely in March of that year. [5]
