Baranggay Lutay sits at one of the peaks of the mountain range that separates Saranggani and Davao del Sur. Grand Mt. Matutum is almost at eye-level from this vantage point. The indigenous Tagakaolo call this home.

Children from different neighboring baranggays in the municipality of Malungon walk as much as three hours everyday to get an education, crossing valleys and navigating 14 inch-wide trails with steep vertical drops on one or both sides.

Teachers who come from nearby General Santos city, mostly stay in for the week to avoid having to make the daily traverse, returning to the city only on weekends but ensuring they are back in the school by Monday morning.

Horseback is the only means of transport on the slopes.
