Approximately having an elevation of 1,500 meters with a cover area of 10,360 km²,The Banaue Rice Terraces  was chosen by the World Travel and Tour Council as one of the two green globe destinations of the Philippines.  It also received the “International Historic Engineering Landmark Award” from the American Society of Civil Engineers.

If you measure the stone walled terraces from top to bottom, it will exceed the height of the world’s tallest building.  These beautiful steps however are starting to erode as many young  Ifugaos are not interested in farming.
