Region XIV: CAR Region:

Cordillera Administration Region:

The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), designated as region XIV is a landlocked region in most north-central section of the Philippines. It is composed of six provinces: Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, and the Mountain Province. Its Regional Center is located in Baguio City, Benguet.

It is made of the Cordillera Mountains, and it is bordered by Region I: Ilocos Region to the south and west, Region II: Cagayan Valley Region to the north, south and east. Apayao is the most northern province, with Abra west and below it and Kalinga east and below it. Followed by the Mountain Province, Ifugao, and Benguet in the south.

Known for its stunning mountainous landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and vibrant indigenous communities, CAR is a unique and diverse region in the country.

One of the prominent features of CAR is its majestic mountain ranges, including the Cordillera Central, which is a haven for trekking, mountaineering, and nature exploration. The terraced rice fields carved into the mountainsides are a testament to the ingenuity of the local indigenous peoples, who have cultivated these lands for generations.

The cultural tapestry of CAR is woven with the traditions and customs of its various indigenous groups, such as the Igorots, Ibalois, Kankana-eys, and Ifugaos. These communities take pride in their traditional dances, music, rituals, and crafts, making CAR a haven for those interested in immersing themselves in authentic indigenous experiences.

Moreover, the region is famous for its vibrant festivals, including the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio City, which showcases breathtaking flower floats and street dancing, as well as the Lang-ay Festival in Bontoc, Mountain Province, celebrating the unity of the Cordilleran people.

Visitors to CAR can also explore its historical and cultural sites, such as the Banaue Rice Terraces, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a testament to the engineering marvels of the ancient Ifugao civilization. The region is also home to Mount Pulag, the third-highest peak in the Philippines, offering rewarding treks and awe-inspiring views of the surrounding highlands.

In essence, the Cordillera Administrative Region captivates visitors with its natural wonders, cultural legacy, and warm hospitality, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking adventure, cultural enrichment, and a deeper appreciation of the Philippines’ diverse heritage.
