The Banaue Rice Terraces are a system of agricultural terraces carved into the Cordillera Mountains by the Ifugao tribe, approximately 2,000 years ago. They are widely considered a marvel of ancient engineering, and often known as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". Laid out side by side, the terraces would stretch a total length of 22,400 kilometers (13,919 miles), enough to encircle half of the globe. They rise to a height of 1,525 meters (5,000 feet) above sea level.

The Geography and Travel Portal

Geography and Travel.svg

Geography is the study of the location, extent, distribution, frequency, and interaction of all the important elements of the human and physical environment on the Earth's surface, particularly its features and the distribution of life on the planet. Physical geography, which focuses on earth science, provides knowledge on the physical, meteorological and ecological patterns of the earth. Human geography discusses economic, political and cultural geography, focusing more on the non-physical aspects of the world.

This WikiPilipinas portal on geography contains an outline of Philippine geography topics, including both human and physical aspects. This is the proposed framework of WikiPilipinas' pool of editors to guide readers and contributors, to reach the aim of creating an authoritative and comprehensive discussion on Philippine geography.

If you want to help, please register and be part of the growing community of volunteers in WikiPilipinas.

NOTE: When creating articles, please make use of the proper categories provided by the editors in this outline. You may use the discussion page for any suggestion, concern or inquiry.
