    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Banaue is a rugged but spectacular four-hour trip from Bontoc to Banaue along a winding road that leads up into the misty Cordilleras, across a mountaintop pass, then down precipitous mountainside. It may only be 300km north of Manila, but Banaue is a world away, 1300m above sea level and far removed in spirit and topography from the beaches and palm trees of the south. This is the heart of rice-terrace country. Indeed, the rice terraces at Banaue are one of the great icons of the Philippines. They were hewn from the land 2000 years ago by Ifugao tribes people using primitive tools, an achievement in engineering terms that ranks alongside the building of the pyramids.

    Called the "Stairway to Heaven" by the Ifugaos, the terraces would stretch 20,000km (that's halfway around the world) if laid out end to end. The future of the terraces, recently added to the United Nations' World Heritage List, is closely tied to the future of the tribes people themselves.

    The region has other worth-visiting rice terraces, including those of Batad. Its terraces line a breathtaking amphitheater-shaped slope.

    The Banaue Rice Terraces (as well as the other regional ones) are now facing erosion because of a decline in upkeep. This is the reason why Banaue is also part of UN's World Heritage Danger's List.

    • Banaue Rice Terraces
      6.71 Km from Banaue
      The Banaue Rice Terraces (Filipino: Hagdan-hagdang Palayan ng Banawe) are 2,000-year-old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by ancestors of the indigenous people. The Rice Terraces are commonly referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand. The terraces are located approximately 1500 metres (5000 ft) above sea level. They are fed by an ancient irrigation...

    • Sagada
      A quiet mountain town located in a Filipino backwater, Sagada is famed for an unusual combination of coffins and caving, as well as the chance for visitors to pour into the local wilderness of the surrounding forests and stunningly tranquil neighboring hills.

      It’s certainly not the spot, then, for anything but simple accommodation and a quiet trickle of tourists, but the off the beaten track vibe combined with some less predictable travel experiences keep Sagada exciting. Delving down into the milky limestone caves and exploring spots like the Sumaguing Cave is an essential Sagada experience, and takes you in amongst the unusual, dripping formations produced over thousands of years. As well as seeing the sites, the caves offer plenty of adventure, with the entrance location offering stunning views across the neighboring rice terraces and the tours often involving wading through underground rivers.

      Echo Valley, a strange location where you can hear your voice bounce form the far cliff, is another a worthwhile trip, just outside the city center, though like many sights in Sagada, it’s all but essential to take a guide with you, if only to avoid hassle from the natives. At the end of the valley you’ll come across the bizarre hanging coffins, which are strapped to the valley wall by string and hold the bodies of Sagada’s elders. The coffins have, in many cases, hung in place for years, and aren’t quite as spooky as you might expect, unless you’re the type to think deeply about the contents, but it’s certainly an interesting aside.

      Simply drifting around and exploring the rural life of Sagada is an event in itself, though, with experiences like walking around the paddy fields or exploring the local market every bit as essential as the more hyped offerings around town. It’s the kind of place that leaves a mark on a traveller’s brain, simple and rural yet still interesting and different. Many visitors leave transfixed, and argue that one trip is just not enough.
