DENR to help in establishing eco trail in Mt Kalawitan
by Ofelia C. Empian

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Cordillera plans  to establish a 53-kilometer eco trail in Mt. Kalawitan in Mountain Province to entice more adventurers and at the same time help preserve the area. 

Mountain Province Environment and Natural Resources Officer of Octavio Cuanso said together with local government units, they will establish the eco tourism site leading to the pristine forest of Mt. Kalawitan in Sabangan.

“This will be pure trail and trekking area. No roads will be built,” Cuanso said, adding the trail will include the adjoining province of Benguet.

He said the area would be a sustainable eco-tourism practice employing the help of the locals, especially areas in the Benguet side with vegetable gardens.

As part of their program under the sustainable integrated area development framework of the DENR, the development of the eco tourism site must be sustainable.

Cuanso said they would be working with the community in providing planting materials such as hedgerows for enhancement and beautification of their farms.

Mt. Kalawitan is in the boundary of Bontoc and Sabangan in Mountain Province and Tinoc in Ifugao. It is the fourth highest mountain in the Luzon having a peak elevation of 2,714 meters above sea level.

The mountain maintains a forested peak, a sanctuary to diverse wild life, and also the source of water flowing to various tributaries of the Chico River.

The sustainable integrated area development or SIAD will serve as the DENR’s framework for localizing development, creating social enterprises in the countryside, and building mini economic zones that can generate employment, livelihood and equitable income-generating activities in communities.

The DENR has designated 29 priority areas, 13 of which in Luzon, six in Visayas, and 10 in Mindanao.

Chico River and Mt. Pulag are among  the program areas in Luzon.
