unlike the rice terraces of Batad, Banaue's rice terraces are located just beside the highway that goes to Bontoc and Sagada. so it has several view points along the highway thus naming the area Viewpoint.one can also notice that the rice terraces of Banaue has slanted walls compared to the ones in Batad which has vertical walls of piled stones. yet both are majestic and picturesque. one that i recommend every Filipino should see.
the fogs that cover the topmost part of the terraces made me realize why most travel books would sometimes described it as the stairway to heaven.
and yes don't be surprised when you see a free running vehicle coming along the highway. it's a wooden bicycle that is quite popular in Ifugao. i had my chance to ride one too, and maybe someday i'll bring home one.
