Mt. Malindang 14th Freedom Climb Images

Mt. Malindang Freedom Climb is a yearly activity held in different parts of Mount Malindang Range Natural Park. The trek started at Brgy. Guinggona, Ozamiz City. We departed Ozamiz City proper at around 10:00 AM and arrived at the jump-off of Brgy. Guinggona around 11:00 AM. We had our lunch at the jump-off. We started our ascent at 11:30 AM.

The route
The red line shows the ascent trail to the campsite. The trail is an easy open field consisting of vegetable plantation and cogon grassland.

Enjoying the breath-taking view

A very rewarding view at the trail.
We can also see the entire Lanao del Norte on the background. Flanking the Panguil Bay is Mt. Torong Torong. We are also able to see Mt. Inayawan at far south east.

Luckily, I am able to capture Mt. Ragang on Piapayungan Mountain Range, the seventh highest peak of the Philippines. It is also dubbed as the seventh summit of the Philippines.

A very hot and open trail
