The Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental has issued a travel advisory for mountaineering and eco-adventure enthusiasts particularly in the province’s hinterland areas due to the ongoing military operations against communist rebels.
Specifically, the subject areas include Mt. Sumagaya and Mt. Lumot in Claveria and Mt. Balatukan in Gingoog City.
However, the province’s coastal areas remain safe for the general public.
Accordingly, the suspension of these outdoor activities will soon be lifted once the subject areas will be declared safe and cleared by the military.
