The Cordillera mountain is a majestic range of nature in Northern Luzon and is one of the most admired sceneries in all of the Philippines. It is home to the rice terraces – a man-made wonder dating back at least a thousand years ago, serving as evidence as to how engineering advanced in the tribal days. Truly the eighth wonder of the world! (Jeez, I need to go there!)
It is also home to a couple of the interesting tribal cultures here in the Philippines! The Ifugao has made the mountains their residence and home, their workplace. Their everything! It is no wonder why a lot of organizations are seeking (one of them is UNESCO, with Batad village being a UNESCO heritage site) to protect the mountain range, and the culture that comes with it.
So one thing to figure out for me though — need to learn how to bike! Any volunteers to teach me? Heh.
