Northern Mindanao Mountains

 

In Northern MIndanao lies four of the top 10 highest mountains in the Philippines, three of which are in the Kitanglad mountain range. The forests of this range, together with those of Mt. Kalatungan and Mt. Malindang, are very rich in biodiversity. In fact, the Philippine Eagle is said to still roam some of those places. The mossy forests are also spectacular. Mountaineers from Luzon will find it a thrilling experience to climb in Mindanao; the local mountaineering culture is distinct and there are also tribes to encounter, such as the Talaandig in Bukidnon. In spite of security fears and apprehensions, Northern Mindanao is actually quite safe for climbing. It would be best, though, to coordinate with local mountaineering groups.

Main Dishes Philippine Cuisine

Adobo is one of the most popular Filipino dishes and is considered unofficially by many as the national dish. It usually consists of pork or chicken, sometimes both, stewed or braised in a sauce usually made from vinegar, cooking oil, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, and soy sauce. It can also be prepared "dry" by cooking out the liquid and concentrating the flavor. Bistek, also known as "Filipino beef steak," consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce and calamansi and then fried in a skillet that is typically served with onions.
