The Monastery of Transfiguration has been my sanctuary so i make it a point to visit as much as possible whenever I am in Bukidnon.

I remember going here in 2013 and 2014 for a silent retreat. This place has given me so much comfort and solace. During my previous stay, I would wake up at 5am to join the monks in their vespers prayer. During that time it was only P950/night inclusive of 5 meals!

Today, I came with my friends and also prayed for those who sent me their prayer petitions. We made sure to pass by the souvenir shop to buy Monk's Blend coffee and some biscuits.

Travelling with Love. How grateful you are to travel with your very love d one.

We often see each other. We go on a date like thrice in a year or sometimes we don’t really go on a date in a year, because of our busy schedule. We both worked at somewhere in the government industry.
So every time we see each other, we always make sure that we go to the best place and never be forgotten. The places where we could really marked as the most wonderful time of the year. I am very happy to be with him.

So, there is a place that is really, highly recommended for the couple who wants to have a very heavenly place or solemenly place for their special/greatest day in their lives.

This is also one of my best option if I’ll get married, soon. 128514128079🏻
“It maybe near but yet so far”. It’s a 6 kilometers walk from the stop over of the pedicabs going to Valencia City, Bukidnon
Going there:
If you’re from Malaybalay city. Take a pedi cab and you can freely ask if their way is going to the Monestery.

So we took the pedicab for only 20 pesos for two.
And we walk going to the church. It was worth the walk!
When you reach your destination, it will be worth while.
But remember: Do not forget to Pray for God for what you have done when u walk going through the church.

To sum it all up in one word: SURREAL

The facade gave me a sense of reflection. The entire place allowed inner contemplation.

Center of the solemn atmosphere is the pyramid church structure surrounded by nature. There is an astonishing view of the landscape. The interior is as humbling as the outdoor ambiance. It is built with wooden ceilings, hardwood seats, and glass doors. Everything is simply put together in a very minimalistic approach. The church observes proper attire and it's important to avoid wearing shorts or sleeveless shirts in entering the Monastery.

The Benedictine Monks established a souvenir shop for religious articles. It is the same store that supply the finest coffee in the province also popularized as the Monk's Blend. There are other local delicacies available at an affordable price.

The best souvenir that every traveler can receive here is the opportunity for momentary stillness. A visit to the Monastery is a great break away from the city, a serene place to meditate and veer away from the noise of daily life.

Monastery of Transfiguration is approximately 130km away from Cagayan De Oro, an ideal addition to CDO-Bukidnon itinerary. The location is a 15-minute drive from Malaybalay City via Sayre Hi-way.
