The Ifugao Rice Terraces was inscribed in the
UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE LIST in 1995 ""because of its
great beauty that expresses conquered and conserved harmony between
humankind and the environment.""
This primitive agricultural engineering feat
is well known all over the world. The culture of Igorots ( native
folks of Banawe) is very unique and has been in a number of TV
documentaries. Mesmerize with their tribal rituals, weave a blanket
with the locals, and if one is lucky enough, you might be invited
to a tribal kaniao or a grand feast.
There are five major rice terraces listed which
are similar yet distinct from one another:
BANAUE. This is the most famous of all the sites.
It is the artistic center of the Ifugao carvers and the Ikat weavers.
BATAD. Located also in Banaue, it is home to
the spectacular tiered, amphitheater-shaped terraces.
MAYOYAO. Located in Banaue. The organic Ifugao rice, Tinawon,
in red and white variety, is harvested here in abundance.
HAPAO. Its stone-walled rice terraces date back
to 650 AD and is located in Hungduan. Mt. Napulawan is located
KIANGAN. It is home to two famous rice terraces
sites known for their size and visual impact: Nagacadan and Julungan.
