    0

    BATAD, Banaue, Ifugao: The restoration of the world-famous rice terraces in Batad, Banaue in the province of Ifugao is nearing completion, as 75 percent of the total damaged area was already completely restored. The Batad rice terraces, the most famous among the rice terraces in Ifugao, were damaged in October 2011 when heavy rains brought by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng caused a landslide which left a wide “scar” smack in the middle of the amphitheatre-like structure. This caught the attention and concern of not just visitors but also that of President Benigno Aquino 3rd who immediately ordered its restoration and the release of corresponding fund allocations to repair the Unesco world heritage site.
