A region of spectacular riceterracing, belonging to the Ifugao people of the Mountain Province of northern Luzon, Philippines. The terraces extend like giant steps up mountain sides and are of unknown antiquity, although they were considered by anthropologist Felix Keesing to have been constructed after Spanish penetration of the Philippines (commencing 1571). However, more recent excavations suggest that some house terraces in the region could date back to 1000 bc.
