The Cagayan de Oro City Council Committee on Tourism will be tackling a proposal to declare Mount Nahilaran, considered the highest peak in the city located in Barangay Dansolihon to become an eco-tourism park. The proposed ordinance filed by City Councilor Malvern “Bernie” Esparcia seeks to further expand the city’s tourism potential in the hinterland areas.

The peak of Mt. Nahilaran is reported to be 987 meters above sea level (masl) or about 3,238 feet. The site is within an identified sacred land by the Higaonon tribal group. Mountaineers, trekkers and campers have identified Mt. Nahilaran as among the best spots in the city for outdoor activities. Once at the peak, you can see Camiguin, Balatukan Mountain Range and Kitanglad Mountain Range.

The proposal also ensures the protection and preservation of the ecosystem in the area once it will be declared eco-tourism park.
