Malaybalay

The City of Malaybalay may not have the white sand beaches and clear blue waters that lure tourists into visiting many other towns in the country, but the vast variety of landscapes and lush greenery that the capital of Bukidnon has holds many exciting sights and activities teeming with local culture and history for all visitors to enjoy .

A must-visit for anyone touring the city is the Monastery of Transfiguration, home to the Benedictine monks and their famous Monk’s Blend coffee that they produce and process themselves. Its famous pyramid-shaped structure was designed by Leandro Locsin, National Artist for Architecture, and is a perfect place to those in search of relaxation through meditation and prayer.

The Nasuli Spring Resort, a freshwater lagoon surrounded by tall trees and leafy shrubs, is another favorite spot for those looking to unwind with nature. Dip into the ice cold blue green waters for a leisurely swim or enjoy a hearty picnic by the water with family and friends.

Malaybalay is home to many nature parks that are perfect for jogging and other outdoor activities. An hour’s worth of trekking will bring you to the Bukidnon Tree Park. Situated atop a hill, indulge in the panoramic views of the rice fields below. Schedule your visit on a bright, sunny day to enjoy the sight of Mount Katinglad in its full glory, unhampered by the thick clouds and fog that are common in Bukidnon.

Enjoy a stroll and breathe in the fresh pine tree-scented air in the Kaamulan Nature Park. Home to the replicas of the different indigenous houses of the tribal groups in Bukidnon, it is where the Kaamulan Festival is held annually from the last two weeks of February until March 10. An ethnic cultural festival, the Kaamulan Festival celebrates the rich culture of the tribal groups through indigenous rituals, parades, street dancing, garden shows, food festivals, and sporting competitions.

Fancy going on horseback instead of traversing on foot? Though mainly a restaurant, D’ Stable Eco Resort offers horseback riding to complete its ranch-like ambiance. Complete with stables and huts for outdoor dining, it also has cottages for those who plan on staying overnight.

If you can, don’t forget to take home some of the agricultural products that the province is known for such as corn, pineapple, and coffee.
