Glimpses of Bukidnon


My home province Bukidnon is landlocked in the north central part of Mindanao. It is bounded on the North by Cagayan de Oro City, on the South by North Cotabato and Davao City, on the East by Agusan del Sur and Davao del Norte and on the West by Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur.
Occupying a wide plateau and blessed with typhoon-free weather, Bukidnon has a progressive agriculture-based economy and a major producer of rice, corn, sugar, pineapple, banana, rubber, coffee, cassava and other crops. Its livestock industry is also an important producer of chicken, hogs and cattles. With its soils and climate highly suitable for agriculture, Bukidnon is a major expansion area for multinationals companies that engage in banana and pineapple production for export. For these reasons, Bukidnon has been tagged as the "Food Basket" in Mindanao.

Bukidnon's terrain is characterized by rolling uplands, deep canyons and valleys alongside with the low plains which create awesome panoramic views. 

These photos are taken during some of my field works around Bukidnon:

1. Vast farm plantations in Pangantucan and Maramag, Bukidnon





2. Bershiba, Kitaotao, Bukidnon


3. White Mountains/White Rock Walls 




Located in San Jose, Quezon, Bukidnon,  White Rock Walls are solid limestone rock ideal for rock climbing and rappelling. It is also an ideal destination for adventurers, mountain-climbers, spelunkers, hikers and trekkers.

4. Musuan Peak



Also known as Mt. Musuan and Mt. Calayo, it has an elevation of 646 meters above sea level. It is located in Musuan, Dologon, Maramag, Bukidnon. It is actually an active volcano which, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, erupted in 1866 and 1867. Because of its proximity to Central Mindanao University (CMU), it is a popular picnic and hiking place for students and teachers alike. There is an easy trail going up to the peak where one can enjoy a panoramic view of Bukidnon's mountains, forests, vast rice and sugarcane fields and the Pulangi River.

The CMU rice fields.

5. Pulangi River


The  Pulangi River is 320-kilometer extensive river system in Mindanao. It traverses majority of Bukidnon's cities and municipalities. Pulangi River is also one of the major tributaries of the Rio Grande of Mindanao.
