Bukidnon Tourist Destinations

Mention Mindanao as a tourist destination and the first things that pop up in people’s
minds are Davao City, Siargao, General Santos City, and Cagayan de Oro City. Unpopular to
many (at least for now) is the third largest province in the country in terms of total area-
BUKIDNON! It is a landlocked province located in the Northern Mindanao Region with
Malaybalay City as its capital. Bukidnon is the food basket of Mindanao and is the major
producer of rice and corn in its region; but even better, Bukidnon is where the Del Monte
Pineapple plantation is located which means that Bukidnon produces the finest and sweetest
pineapples in the country! But what is so exciting about this province? Is there more to the
province than its sweet pineapples? Yes, of course!

1. Where to go swimming?

Despite the absence of seas, Bukidnon boasts of its natural springs and numerous waterfalls.
One of which is Nasuli Spring Resort, located at Bangcud, Malaybalay City. The fresh water
lagoon is best known for its ice cold water with a depth of over 30 feet which makes it perfect for
diving and swimming. Best time to visit the spring resort is in the morning during the weekdays.

For thrill-seekers who prefer to go deeper into the forest and be one with nature, C.E.D.A.R.
(Center for Ecological Development and Recreation) is the best place for you! Located at
Impasug-ong, Malaybalay with an entrance fee of only P10.00, CEDAR will take you in an
adventure of a lifetime! The eco-park provides a picnic area, camping site, and a man-made
swimming pool with water sourcing from the surrounding natural springs. With just a bit of a
trek, the forest will show you to 4 major waterfalls, perfect for your Instagram!

2. Serene Places

Besides being the cleanest lake in all of Region 10, Lake Apo, located at Guinoyuran,
Valencia City, is the most perfect place for some soul-searching and for unplugging yourself
from the world. Operated by a private businessman, Lake Apo is well-maintained and it offers
floating cottages and a lodging house for rent that can accommodate up to 40 persons with
activities such as kayaking, horse-back riding, and jet skiing. The serene ambience is therapeutic
to the soul.

For a time of reflection, visit the Monastery of Transfiguration, situated on a hill at San Jose,
Malaybalay City. Home of the Benedictine Monks, the solemn place is the most-visited during
the Holy Week. The monastery’s church is built in the shape of a pyramid which was designed
by National Artist for Architecture, Leandro Locsin. Once there, one should not miss the popular
“Benedictine Monk’s Blend Coffee.”
3. Adventure Time!

When in Bukidnon, one should never miss the most popular outdoor destination of all- the
Dahilayan Adventure Park! The fun-filled mountain resort offers an array of adrenaline-pumping
activities such as ziplines, base jumping, Drop Zone (which could be the closest thing you could
get to flying), ATV rides, luge, and many more! The adventure park is the most sought-after
destination of the province and is easily the perfect getaway for families or barkadas!

Just right next to Dahilayan Adventure Park is the Forest Park which also has its own kind of
adventure to offer to its guests, but it is just as fun!

These mountain resorts are located in Manolo, Fortich Bukidnon, and besides the fun that it
guarantees to its guests, one will also be blessed with the scenic views of the Mount Kitanglad
range that surrounds the area. Along the way, guests can also stop by for some photoshoot in the
pineapple plantations of Del Monte.
