Hamiguitan, a mountain which straddles on two municipalities, San Isidro and Governor Generoso, and the city of Mati; all in the province of Davao Oriental.

Lake Mainit and the people thriving around itKitcharao, Agusan del Norte %26#151; People who are unfamiliar with Lake Mainit call the rising of the lake water %26#151; the drowning of thousands of farmlands around the lake during the months of November to March %26#151; as flooding. Farmers around Lake Mainit, meanwhile, call this rising of lake water as guob %26#151; the normal rising of the lake water. This rising of lake water coincides with the heavy rainfall in Lake Mainit and surrounding areas from November to March. Just along the lakeshore of Lake Mainit in the village of Crossing, Kitcharao, Eusebio Narada has a half hectare rice field. Narada, a member of Lapucon Farmers Organization, said in the dialect, %26#34;The farmers here follow the lake water.%26#34; He said the lake water starts to rise in the month of November. In the month of April, he said, the lake water starts to recede. With his farmland just beside the lake, Narada said he is always the last one to plant rice %26#151; normally in the month of May when the lake water is fully out of the way. And as rice has a lifespan of three months, Narada said he can only plant rice twice a year. Like Narada, thousands of other farmers around Lake Mainit rely on this seasonal fluctuation of the water level in the lake. READ MORE >>>
