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.
