Ifugao Overview

Ifugao is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon.

It is named after the term "i-pugo" which means "i" (from/people) and "pugo" (earth), thus people of the earth.

The Banaue Rice Terraces are the main tourist attraction in the province. These 2000-year-old terraces were carved into the mountains, without the aid of machinery, to provide level steps where the natives can plant rice. In 1995, they were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
