In 2009, Mount Kitanglad Range Natural Park (MKRNP) was declared as an ASEAN Heritage Park.
Mount Kitanglad is an inactive volcano located in the Kitanglad Mountain Range in Bukidnon province on Mindanao island. It is the fourth highest mountain in the Philippines and has an approximate height of 2,899 meters. It is located between Malaybalay City and the municipalities of Lantapan, ...
Impasugong, Sumilao, and Libona.
The name "Kitanglad" was derived from a legend that there was once a great flood that submerged the native lands of Bukidnon and only the tip of the mountain, the size of a "tanglad" (lemon grass), remained visible ("kita" in Visayan).
It is considered as an ancestral domain of several old cultural communities like the Bukidnons, Higaonons and Talaandigs.
Mount Kitanglad was proclaimed a protected area under the natural park category through Presidential Proclamation 896 dated October 24, 1996. On November 9, 2000, Mt. Kitanglad finally became a full-pledge protected area when Congress approved R.A. 8978 also known as the Mt. Kitanglad Range Protected Area Act of 2000. Wiki

There must be a hundred blogs written about Kitanglad-Dulangdulang traverse already. And I will be using that as a lame excuse not to write another one.
I have to admit, I really don't know how to write a story anymore. While remnants of pain from the knee injury I got there still linger to remind me that it was not an easy climb, I do not know how to put into detail everything that happened during that climb. After all, it has almost been a month. So if you're here to know about our itinerary, how much time we've spent on the trails, yadda yadda... I am sorry but I will fail you at that.
Mt. Dulang-Dulang, is the second-highest mountain here in the Philippines, with the elevation of 2,938 meters above sea level. It is a chief among the mountains of the Kitanglad mountain range. Mt. Kitanglad is the fourth-highest summit in the Philippines. Known for its long trek and its peaks that have the most beautiful view of landscapes, beginning from the trails of trees and grasslands and as it transcends into its thick and deep jungles. The jungle is covered with moss and clouds. Its moss gives it this ancient and historic look. The trees found there spiral all over with labyrinthine an ...
K2DL Day 3 (Tuesday)
Langkayugan Peak stands at an estimated height of 2,550 MASL. It's a ridge connecting to Maagnaw and some hikers straightly climb up Maagnaw as part of their itinerary. In fact, this was our original plan but mission aborted at the last minute due to time constraints. It was a clear morning with picturesque view of Mt. Kitanglad and Mt. D2. From where we stood presented a 360° panoramic view of neighboring mountain ranges in Mindanao. Who needs Maagnaw when you could already see the breathtaking giant summits of Mt. Balatucan? Or Mt. Kalatungan and Mt. Malindang in Mis ...
K2DL Day 1 (Sunday):
We woke up at 3am and started preparing breakfast and packed lunch. The plan is to leave the bunker house at 5AM so we can start trekking early but let's not kid ourselves and accept the fact that most Pinoys are still fond of sticking to the old Filipino time habit. Everyone was already geared up at 5AM but the truck that will carry us to the jump off point arrived at 6AM. Because it rained last night, the ascending, rocky and muddy road to the foot of Mt. Kitanglad required skilled driving. Halfway through, we had to get off the truck, hike up and just let the truck c ...
