This Mountain is considered cosmologically as the centre of the earth, a territory located in the central part of the world. It provides an area for hunting and the base is good for farming.

The district assumes the presence of deities or gods in the place. Manewvanew is in charge of rain and thunder, Bulelakaw, for streams and rivers, Lelawag for hunting and Ivevasuk for farming – those were the gods, they believe, who balance everything in this place which makes it as a mystical mountain.

The local government prepares and organizes the people for the protection and promotion of Mount Kalatungan Range. May the value of its culture be protected as well. Enjoy the view, and experience the unique adventure.
