A netizen has lambasted irresponsible climbers at Lampanag Ridge located at Sitio Kibuwa, Barangay Impalutao, Impasugong, Bukidnon without proper consent from local lumads and showing no respect to mother nature by leaving their trash behind.

In his Facebook post, Relmon Melendez denounced those who went “through the backdoor” thereby not getting permission from the local IP community. The ridge is part of a 2,000+ hectare ancestral domain. Read his post below.
