29th MFPI Presidents’ Meeting and Climb




This is to officially state that the Mountaineering Federation of the Philippines Inc. or MFPI :

• HAS NOT sought permit from the Mt. Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape Park Superintendent’s office to climb the Tayabas side of Mt. Banahaw on Oct 11-12, 2014.

• DOES NOT have any scheduled “Friendship Ecological Climb Activity” in Barangay Lalo, Tayabas City, Quezon Province

The scheduled climb on Oct. 11-12, 2014 on the Tayabas side of Mt. Banahaw for which the permit (shown below) was issued for a group of 16 climbers is in NO WAY connected to MFPI.

May the public be aware and be protected from adventure organizers who choose to misrepresent and mislead clients and guests who join their trips in good faith.

By the way, Park Superintendent Salud of the Mt. Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape has already been informed about this. Permit has been cancelled.

Thank you.
