2018 BUKIDNON TRAVEL GUIDE | TOURIST ATTRACTIONS, BUDGET HOTELS BUKIDNON: A PROVINCE FULL OF PROMISE, A PROVINCE FULL OF POTENTIAL

Nestled among the territories of Mindanao, is a landlocked area whose name is derived from the local name for highlander or a mountain dweller – Bukidnon. It houses the country’s second-highest point – Mount Dulang-dulang which rises to an elevation of 2938 meters above sea level. Also worth mentioning is that the province also has the Kitanglad Mountain Range which includes Mount Kalatungan, with an elevation of 2860 meters, Mount Kitanglad with its 2899-meter height, Mount Maagnaw with its 2742-meter elevation and Mount Tuminungan with a recorded elevation of 2400 meters.

Rich biodiversity is evident among these mountains which adds to the allure for nature lovers. Hiking through these mountains would prove to be an excellent adventure for nature lovers because its paths may also provide some kind of challenge even for the most experienced hikers. Still, the effort would be worth it because hikers would be treated not only with breathtaking views but also with crisp and fresh mountain air that revitalizes the senses.

While devoid of any seaports or huge bodies of water, it does boast of huge tracts of land which produce huge harvests of produce such as pineapples, sugarcanes, and bananas – all of which are export quality material. It also is known for being the breadbasket of Mindanao as it produced huge amounts of rice and corn that brought sustenance to the residents of the province and nearby areas. Such agricultural bounty has proved to be a boon for residents of the province who are among the wealthiest in the Mindanao region.

While it is landlocked, it does have a reputation as the watershed of the area with Bukidnon being endowed with six major river systems which feed its many fields of bounty. These rivers: the Pulangi, the Cagayan, the Tagoloan, the Muleta, the Manupali and the Bobonawan are great forces of nature as they are among the many reasons why the province is replete with canyons.

The longest river in the province, the Pulangi River, is basically a tributary of the Rio Grande de Mindanao, one of the important water systems in the whole country and makes its way into several municipalities of the province. The other rivers also run through several municipalities and are among the important resources where these places are founded on. The teeming resources provided by these rivers add to the bounty of the land to make the province truly special.

What also makes Bukidnon quite famous is its reputation as one of the places on the planet where quality pineapples are produced. The climate of the place is pretty much perfect for the growing of these plants and the production and canning plant of food giant Del Monte Philippines, Incorporated is located in the province and provides not only jobs but more importantly the opportunities and the economic reputation that entails such an industry. In fact, the strong local economy has attracted other giants such as San Miguel foods Corporation, Monterey Farms, and Swift Foods, Incorporated to put up other processing plants and agro-industrial sites in the province. Other huge companies have also followed suit, thereby strengthening the local economic opportunities.

Bukidnon holds much promise. It still holds a lot of things to be discovered, a lot of things to be re-discovered, a lot of things to be encountered and experienced to make a visit worthwhile. The potential is unlimited, the challenge of putting together the opportunities enormous, but the resiliency and the strength of native Bukidnons would surely come to fore.
