Looming southwest of the Agusan Valley is a majestic mountain plateau that once was a bountiful home for wild animals and humans alike and a source of potable water to locals. It was also a key figure in harmonizing nature and its inhabitants.
Mt. Mayapay is a prominent natural landmark in Butuan City. Its plateau formation is the predominant feature that serves as backdrop of the city. It is the highest peak of Butuan City-Buenavista mountain ranges with an elevation of 675 meters above sea-level.

Loggers did not just cut off certain kinds of trees, they are cutting a bond that nature and mankind shares.
Mt. Mayapay is also blessed with natural resources; from valuable stones to rare gems.
But gold is the prominent element that is being mined and is still being extracted from the bowels of dear Mount Mayapay.
Mining has really took its toll in
