Photographer's Note

These are Laya and Nene enjoying the breathtaking view of one of the many rice terraces in Sagada. They are university students from Manila who I met on a bus trip from Baguio to Sagada. Sagada is a pleasant little tranquil community in the Mountain Province in the Cordillera Region of Northern Philippines. A place known for its rice terraces, hanging coffins, caves, and a milieu of other breathtaking sceneries, Sagada offers an ideal haven to its inhabitants and a taste of "Shangri-la" to intrepid enough visitors.

Located 275-km north of Manila (100-km from Baguio) near the provincial capital of Bontoc, it's a long day's bus ride starting from the Dangwa bus station in Baguio over the narrow mountain tracks traversing the Cordilleras.

On a personal note, it was because of this photo that I discovered TE. A friend alerted me that this photo, which I took and first uploaded at MIP (a website about the Philippines), was posted by another person under his name. My sincerest thanks to Adam for fixing the whole mess.
