Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) Philippines

Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) PhilippinesCordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is one of the prime tourist destinations here in the Philippines. In this region, we can see one of the eight wonders of the world, The Banaue Rice Terraces. Cordillera Region is the Philippines' Premiere Highland Region. This region has many spectacular scenic views and enchanting cool places. It also is rich in historical and cultural heritage. This region is the home of the indigenous tribes called Igorot.

Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) consists of the provinces of Abra, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province and Apayao. Baguio is the regional capital center. The region is rich in ancient culture because the people's way of life in this place existed way back to the ancient Filipinos before the Spain colonize the country. The people live amidst the rice terraces that is towering the Northern Luzon. The Igorot, Tinguian, Apayao, and the Kalinga Tribes reign over Luzon's Mountain Terrain. It is generally cool throughout the year in the region.

Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is rich in natural resources and is abundant in mineral reserves. Metallic ores that can be found in this region are gold, copper, silver, zinc, and non-metallic minerals like sand, gravel and sulfur. Mineral reserves are found in all the provinces. However, mining is concentrated in Benguet.

Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is a mountainous and more heavily populated area. Great majority of Cordillera's population are in the below poverty line that are engaged in farming and small-scale production. These majority are composed of closely-related indigenous people popularly known as igorots. But they are also grouped into ethnic or ethno-linguistic identities, such as Apayao or Isneg, Tinggian, Kalinga, Bontoc, Kankanaey, Ibaloy, Ifugao, and Bago.


Nowadays, Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) is already a mixture of indigenous, non-indigenous, and migrant people. Bigger and more diverse populations are found in Cordillera's melting pot areas, such as those in urban (or rapidly urbanizing) Baguio-Benguet and in the foothills and valleys adjoining the great lowlands of Luzon. In these areas, the original indigenous communities have given way to hybrid communities composed of varied mixtures of indigenous and migrant people.
