Thanks to Dennis S. Ella for adding this peak.

Mount Agdalusan shares with Mount Bagong-Bong a long spine stretching from South to North. The summit of Bagong-Bong is slightly to the south of the middle of the spine while that of Agdalusan is close to the northern edge. The spine hardly has any forest cover on its upper reaches save for the region surrounding its Agdalusan summit. A foot-trail, which turns muddy after a downpour, traverses the entire spine, with a few shacks scattered widely apart by the wayside.

There is not a day without anyone walking along the Agdalusan Trail that serves as the main access route to outlying “barangays” (villages) and “sitios” (village sectors). Slightly past Bagong-Bong, there is a trail-branch descending westward to the valley of Cabatangan, a sparsely populated “barangay”. Trekkers going to Tinagong Dagat, the legendary mountain lake of Lambunao, normally use this Cabatangan trail. Going straight ahead from the junction is the less traveled portion of Agdalusan Trail leading to the summit and plunging down West to Sitio Budyan straddling on a land-bridge situated North of Barangay Cabatangan.
