Guiban Falls and Balabag Peak- The Mystical Beauty of Conception

The 18th Malindang Ascent offers the mystical beauty of Mount Balabag and Guiban Falls, situated in the municipality of Conception, Misamis Occidental.

During this event I have all the time and opportunity to exploit the flora and fauna of Mount Balabag and Guiban Falls. Unfortunately, I missed to capture the wild orchids - my camera batteries gone empties.

One of the best features in the area was the hospitality of the Subanen people, one of the most friendly indigenous people I've personally met.
