Mountains in the Philippines

Who says agriculture doesn’t belong in mountain regions!

I have to hand it to these workers, they’ve certainly made lemonade with the lemons nature gave them. It’s definitely not easy to practice agriculture in this kind of environment, but they pulled it off in the Philippines and they did it by using their hands and tools, no kind of fancy machinery.

And I have to say that besides the purpose they serve, these mountains really look amazing!

    this form of agricultural planting does not occur only in the Philliphines, most other South East Asian countries such as Indoneisa also employ this method.

    Awesome! Got to include this 2000-year old Rice Terraces in the Philippines in your List of 100 Places to Visit Before You die.

    That is amazing (and pretty). I can only imagine how much work went into building those over the years…

    As mentioned earlier… you can find this kind of rice terrace in MANY south east asian countries… its not really something i would consider an “oddity”…

    they also do this in italy, and many other parts of the world.

    i would still call this an oddity. so few people are even aware of such a thing. they also exist in parts of south america…i worked on fields just like this in ecuador
