Stairway To Heaven

Rice paddies on steep slope

The rice paddies were built on the steep slope

Shot in Banaue, Philippines.

It is famous for rice terraces which are regarded as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Because the level ground was hard to find in this area, people made rice paddies on the steep slopes since olden days. Towering rice terraces are called as 'Stairway to heaven'.
