Fantastically beautiful island Mindoro
With a size of approximately 10,000 square kilometres, Mindoro is the seventh largest of all the islands and lies in the west of the Philippine island kingdom. The interior is a largely unexplored, with dense, often impenetrable jungle overgrown and thus partially inaccessible mountain country, which rises to almost 2600 meters above sea level. In this mountainous country the most primitive natural people of the Mangyans still lives. This mountainous country is also the only area in the world where the tamaraw buffalo, a special water buffalo species, is native.
