Batad Rice Terraces, Banaue, Philippines (UNESCO)

Great view of the Batad Rice Terraces sent by Romina Mislang for the WiP UNESCO Swap. The terraces were carved into the mountains by the ancestors of indigenious pleople about 2000 years ago. They are fed by an ancient irigation system, channelling water from the rainforests. Locals still plant rice and vegetables on the terraces.
