    The Mt. Kanlaon National Park, established in 1934, encompasses 24,558-ha and harbors some of the few remaining tracts of rainforest, and a variety of wildlife.

    Access to the park can be best gained from the Mambucal Resort located near the Wasay Entrance Station.  Here are some photos from a group trek in 1983 sponsored by the National Mountaineering Federation of the Philippines.
