17 Tremendous Terraced Rice Fields

Like rice? Rice is a staple in many countries. Terraced paddy fields are very common in rice farming where the land is hilly or mountainous.
Terraced rice fields helps to decrease erosion and work well for rice crops which need to be grown in a flooded area. Terraced paddy fields are built into steep hillsides by intense physical labor, sometimes by using a water buffalo to help in the wetlands. While terraced rice fields are a common sight in third-world countries, it is an uncommon sight for many of us. We loved these pics – 17 Tremendous Terraced Rice Fields.

Dubbed as the eight wonder of the world, these rice terraces are carved out of rocky mountainsides in most of the Cordillera Provinces — following sacred traditions and skill passed on to generations. On the average, these rice terraces are 1,500 meters above sea level.” photo: source
