Bongao peak has an approximate 314 meters above sea level and considered as the highest peak in the province that dominates bu its landscape.


Bud Bongao is located at Bongao Peak Ecotourism and Natural Park covering 250 hectares forest as one of the last remaining moist forest in the Sulu Archipelago. 
The most prominent wildlife that you can see here is the Philippine macaques and many of them are released out in the wild. I suggest to bring some bananas so you can enjoy feeding them.   
There are plenty of flora and fauna that you can see while going uphill. Different classes of rees like pitogo, molave, spreading club moss, kalantas and bitanghol can be seen here. Varieties of insects species and animals still being protected and free to live in this protected forest.
