TRAVEL: Bukidnon Links: A day hike to Panimahawa Ridge

By Earl E. Bolivar

Panimahawa Ridge is fast becoming a popular hiking destination in the mountainous Province of Bukidnon. Situated in Barangay Impalutao, Impasugong, it has been drawing outdoor enthusiasts from as far as Davao and Cagayan de Oro ever since it was opened to the public just this year.

What used to be a place where hunters partake their breakfast (“panimahawa” came from the word “pamahaw”, meaning breakfast) the ridge is now a must-visit spot in the province, offering a moderately-challenging hike and really scenic views.

Hiking to the ridge is being organized by Ant Farm. After registering our names in the logbook and paying the entrance and guide fee, our group of six was provided with walking sticks and two local guides. Our hike started at about 3:30 AM on flat and muddy grounds. It has  been raining the past few days making the trails wet and slippery.
