FUN AT Mt. Dulang-Dulang to Mt. Kitanglad traverse

Trail Difficulty: 8/10

Adventure Duration: 5 day/s

Mt. Dulang-Dulang, in Bukidnon, is the second-highest mountain in the Philippines and is home of one of the most beautiful and richest forest in the country. The mountain has its mystical aura because of its luscious trails of pine trees, grassland and a dense jungle home to the Talaandig tribe who guards the mountain because it is sacred to them. Mt. Kitanglad which is also in Bukidnon is the fourth highest mountain in the country and its invigorating forest is rich in biodiversity.

On your climb, remember to show respect to the Talaandigtribesfolk.The Mt. Dulang-Dulang – Mt. Kitanglad traverse takes you to deeper into the Kitanglad traverse of the mountain range.
The Mt.Dulang-Dulang to Mt.Kitanglad traverse is a home to a variety of fauna and flora, some of  which are endangered such as the bird locally called  “tusing” which is endemic.The Philippine Serpent Eagle and the Philippine Sparrow Hawk find refuge in the large uninhabited part of the mountain range. It is one of the most challenging climbs in the country.
As two of the highest mountains of the Philippines, the stunning scenery and mystical location of Mts. Dulang-Dulang and Kitanglad  make them stand out among the other mountains in the Kitanglad range.
