Rice Terraces Marathon Year 3 2016

Hungduan Ifugao Marathon Mountain Province Mountain Run Rice Terraces Marathon
The name of Hungduan came from the word “Hungdu.” It means “to traverse through.” This word means a place where a person traverses through on their way to another place. In ancient times, the place serves as the portal from one municipality to another like a place in Ifugao to Benguet. The terraces have long been protected and managed through traditional ancestral land use management traditions of the indigenous Ifugao community. Individual terraces are privately owned and protected through ancestral rights, tribal laws and traditional practices. The maintenance of the living rice terraces reflects a primarily cooperative approach of the whole community which is based on detailed knowledge of the rich diversity of biological resources existing in the Ifugao agro-ecosystem, a finely tuned annual system respecting lunar cycles, zoning and planning, extensive soil conservation, and the mastery of a most complex pest control regime based on the processing of a variety of herbs, accompanied by religious rituals. Run through Spider web Rice Terraces (UNESCO World Heritage) Hapao Rice Terraces, Waterfalls, Hotspring, Coldspring, SpanishTrail, Panique rice field.
