Mt. Kitanglad Range Natural Park is located between Malaybalay City and the municipalities of Lantapan, Impasugong, Sumilao, Talakag, and Libona in the province of Bukidnon. This natural treasure is the 3rd highest peak in Mindanao, the 4th highest in the Philippines, and is considered the ancestral domain of the seven tribal communities of Bukidnon.
The Kitanglad mountain range was declared an ASEAN Heritage Park in 2009 because it is one of the few remaining rainforests in the country and it hosts over 600 important diverse species of rare and endemic wildlife in the country such as the Bukidnon woodcock, the Philippine Tarsier, the pygmy fruit bat Alionycteris paucidentata, two native mice, the Crunomys suncoides and the Limonmys bryophilus, and the Rafflesia schadenbergiana, the world's second largest flower. It is also most importantly a nesting place for the critically endangered Philippine eagle.
When we can go out and aim for peaks and above the clouds again, join us in a trek to Mt. Kitanglad and together let us marvel at the beauty of one of the highest mountains in the Philippines.
