0255 Philippines - Palawan

private swap

Palawan is the largest province in the Philippines.
Nature of Palawan can be considered fragile from its attribute such as its narrow mainland, composed of small islands and steep topography, high erodible soils with small watersheds and short rivers and the soil geology is impermeable.  
Due to Palawan’s uniqueness, UNESCO, declared it as a “Man and Biosphere Reserve” owing to its vast land area and topography divided by tall mountains ranges such as Mt. Mantalingahan, Mt. Gantung in the southern part and Cleopatra’s Needle in the northern part of the province with an average elevation approximately 1,100 meters.
