    Bangaan Retreat

    We hardly get any tourists these days, said the old man as I inquired if the Ifugao house is available in Bangaan, Ifugao province. "Of course it's available. You get the same rate as you got before."

    Ifugao And Its Stairways To Heaven

    A few minutes after breakfast, I found myself standing in awe, in front of the rice terraces, those fields carved from the mountain sides, perhaps made by bare hands of the Ifugao tribe. A massive work that covers the slopes of some of the mountains in Banaue and the nearby towns. They seem like stairways to heaven, revealing their beauty as the rising sun began to cast its morning light on the ancient rice terraces.

    Bangaan Rice Terraces A UNESCO World Heritage Site In Ifugao

    We had our breakfast at the Banaue Police Station (astig!), that's one of the perks of having a friend and a travel buddy who is a police officer.

    It was a satisfying meal complete with fish and vegetables, coupled with my morning coffee. The best part was also the warmth of the people! I had a chance to talk to a female police officer there, while she was typing something on her computer.

    As I went outside to catch some fresh air, I realized her point. Banaue is indeed beautiful…
