MTREX Hosts the 20th Malindang Ascent and 2nd Pas’ungko Climb
In line with the celebration of the 86th Provinicial Anniversary and 6th Pas’ungko S’g MisOcc Festival, the Malindang Trekkers (MTREX) hosted the 20th Malindang Ascent and 2nd Pas’ungko Climb last November 6 to 8, 2015 in Siatog Peak, one of the peaks of Mt. Malindang. The three-day event was also sponsored by the Provincial Government of Misamis Occidental headed by Governor Herminia M. Ramiro, Provincial Tourism, DENR-PENRO Misamis Occidental, ClimbMachine Outdoors, MMF Mindanao Mountaineering, Smart Communication, and Apex Outdoor Shop.
After the tedious yet fulfilling climb in Siatog Peak, the trekkers were finally back on the plains where a party on the evening of November 8 was organized for them at the Provincial Capitol Grounds. The trekkers who participated in the said event were given event souvenirs and certificates during their socials night. During the program, Provincial Vice-Governor Aurora Virginia M. Almonte delivered her message to the participants in which she shared how grateful she is to MTREX who hosted the activity and all the partner mountain trekkers associations for helping the Provincial Government in its advocacy in promoting and protecting the province’s rich eco-tourism of Mt. Malindang.
Everybody enjoyed the rest of the night as it concluded with a live band party.
