Like, Mount Silay, its adjacent mountain to the north, Mount Mandalagan is largely covered by tropical rain forest, portions of which are second-growth. Logging concessionaires had stripped much of its old hardwood like the red lawa-an. Its rugged interior, however, provide difficulty of access and prevented further damage of its virgin forests.
Tinagong Dagat, a seasonal lagoon, situated to north west of the Mandalagan summit, is famous nationwide for trekkers.
Another draw for trekkers in the mountain is Sulfatara, a region of fumaroles, linked by a hunter's trail to Tinagong Dagat.
