Another route for adventurers? Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Vincente “Bambi” Emano recently led the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony of the completion of the Construction of Missing Gaps along the Malaybalay City – Gingoog City Road held at Sitio Kalhaan, Barangay Minalwang in Claveria town as a sidelight of the launching of the Municipal Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (MTF-ELCAC) and One DA’s Adopt a Community programs in the area.
This National Road starts in Gingoog City and follows the mountainous route via Tiklas Falls to Minalwang area then towards Kalabugao Proper. From Kalabugao, the route takes travelers along the Cabanglasan-Kalabugao Road which passes Cabanglasan town then turn west towards Aglayan Junction in Malaybalay City. View map below.
Accordingly, although the road is already passable, several sections are still not paved. Last February, the DPWH announced the completion of four bridges along the route. Read our post below.
