Picture from the island: Banaue Rice Terraces

2000-year old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by ancestors of the Batad indigenous people. It is one of the forgotten wonders of the world. It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand

Very beautiful! I should put the Philippines as one of my places to visit during my travels later on in life.
