I saw this mountain at around 10:30 a.m. on July 18, 2013 when I was at the Leyte Park Hotel. This was during my first time in Leyte and Samar, the 21st and 22nd province on my list.

According to the locals, Mount Danglay was named in honor of the tragic couple, Dang and Mulay, where they are said to have been buried.
