The Imperial Ifugao..

It was a good day to start. The sun is up and the wind is refreshing.

Ifugao is set in the mountainous part of the Cordilleras.

Home to the 8th Wonder of the Ancient World.

The Ifugao Rice Terraces is the most extensive of all rice terraces in the world.

These 2000 year old terraces were carved by ancestors of the Ifugao people.

Most of them still practice traditional farming.

This is up-close and personal with the ancient rice terraces of Hapao..

Hapao is in Hungduan where one of the oldest rice terraces of Ifugao is located.

They have streams and their ancient irrigation system are notable.

One can dip in these living streams of Hapao.

The sights are awe inspiring.

These rice terraces sustained the lives of the community of the Ifugaos.

Ifugao is more than the small water falls along the road.

More than the famed amphitheater resembled terraces of Batad.

The people are pleasant, they speak with a jubilant spirit.

For this reason, I will keep going back to Ifugao.

It's not just the cold weather and it's not just the views.

It's about the heart-stopping culture of the people.

Marvelous in many ways.

They don't complain much. They are lively people.

There may be a lot of unexpected extras while moving around Ifugao.

This countryside will definitely reside in your dreams.

Dreams that you've fallen for the views of Ifugao...

..And you left your heart.
