BACKGROUNDIn Northern MIndanao lies four of the top 10 highest mountains in the Philippines, three of which are in the Kitanglad mountain range. The forests of this range, together with those of Mt. Kalatungan and Mt. Malindang, are very rich in biodiversity. In fact, the Philippine Eagle is said to still roam some of those places. The mossy forests are also spectacular. Mountaineers from Luzon will find it a thrilling experience to climb in Mindanao; the local mountaineering culture is distinct and there are also tribes to encounter, such as the Talaandig in Bukidnon. In spite of security fears and apprehensions, Northern Mindanao is actually quite safe for climbing. It would be best, though, to coordinate with local mountaineering groups.


COVERAGE UPDATESThe most popular climbs in the region are covered: Mt. Hibok-Hibok, Mt. Kitanglad, and Mt. Dulang-Dulang. The other mountains in the Kitanglad Range are exploratory in nature and no itinerary is available. Explorers Mijan Pizarro and Johann Jangulan have taken it upon themselves to climb all the major peaks of the range – with great success – and they are now in the final stages. Future targets for coverage include Mt. Balatucan and Mt. Malindang.
