Initao National Park is a 57-hectare natural forest located in the town of Initao in Misamis Oriental province.

It is approximately an hour drive from Cagayan de Oro City. There have been no aerial images taken of the park until Google Earth had updated their images in the western part of the province. The first image below shows the natural forest. As per Google-Earth, this imagery is dated August 2013.

Here’s a much farther shot which clearly shows the interestingly forested area in the middle of a coconut-dominated landscape. Local residents often refer to a fairy who serves as guardian of the forest. By the way, the structure seen at the upper left boundary of the park is an old charcoal factory.initao2
