Here’s another outdoor destination on your bucket list…BALINGASAG NATURE PARK is located at Balagnan, Balingasag, Misamis Oriental. A perfect site for overnight camping, the place offers an overlooking view of Macajalar Bay and Punta Gorda and the sea of clouds over the mountain ranges.
GETTING THERE. If you’re coming from Cagayan de Oro, turn right just before Musi-Musi bridge. Just follow the concrete road which will lead you to Balagnan Proper which is approximately 8 kilometers from the highway. Along the way, you will pass by Brgys Dumarait and Rosario. At Balagnan, drop by the Barangay Hall to secure permit or clearance before the 2-3 hour hike to Balingasag Nature Park (Vertudez Farm).
To make it easier, you can contact Ms Kay Galendez for the arrangement and guide.
The place is a known campsite. You can see the famed Punta Gorda in the background.
The welcome signage has become a favorite spot for selfies for visitors.
You can start the hike early so you can come down in the afternoon.
