Crisp & Cool

Coffee and Milkshake

Part 2 0f 3

Nestled in the high plateau of the Cordillera mountain range, in the province of Benguet, lies the various flora of the highlands. With a temperature that is 10 degrees cooler than the lowland’s hot tropical weather , a different set of flora can be seen, but nonetheless still beautiful and beholding like any species of plants. Unlike the vast green and lushness of the lowlands landscape, the landscape of the Cordilleras is also blessed with such beauty and grace. The scent of Benguet Pines, the blooms of Cannas, the purity of White Storm Lilies, and of course the boldness of Helianthus species are just some of the broad richness of the highlands landscape has to offer, like any other plant species are, they never fail to satisy one’s senses.
