A Guide to Spring Resort Hopping in Bukidnon


Being a landlocked province in Mindanao, Bukidnon naturally do not have any shoreline or beaches to boast of. However since it is blessed with abundant natural spring water sources, there are a number of spring resorts in Bukidnon for the residents and tourists to relax and unwind.

The good thing about the spring resorts in Bukidnon is that its locations are not that far from each other. You can hop from one resort to another and it is very possible to check out many destinations in just one day.

Lets assume that your start-off point is Malaybalay City, which is the capital of Bukidnon. About 30 kilometers south of City proper is Barangay Bangcud where Nasuli Spring Resort is located. The resort has a natural lake-like pool fed by ice-cold spring water sprouting from sources beneath its ground. The pool has a depth of about 15 feet on its deepest part. Nasuli used to be a famous picnic place in Bukidnon before the emergence of more developed spring resorts on the province's southern parts. There are no amenities here, just concrete benches on the pool side. But being surrounded with the tall trees, lush greenery and a quiet ambiance make it an ideal place for communing with nature.

Another 30 minutes drive further down south will take you to Barangay Dologon which is already part of the Municipality of Maramag. Here, you can check out MGM Mountain Resort which is the first well-developed spring resort in Bukidnon. Next to Dologon is Barangay Tubigon where three spring resorts are located on the left side of the highway going to Maramag proper. These are the Edlimar Farm and Spring Resort, RR Family Spring Resort and Rockstar Spring Resort. These spring resorts in Dologon and Maramag are equipped with swimming pools, open cottages for picnics and closed cottages for overnight stay (except for Rockstar). Of these four resorts, MGM and RR are the most extensively-developed with large pools, airconditioned rooms and restaurants. Rockstar and RR also offers a great view of the grand Pulangi River.

A 15 minute-drive from Tubigon and you will reach the town proper of Maramag. Nestled in Spring Site, North Poblacion is the Waig Crystal Spring Resort. Aside from its swimming pools with spiral slides, airconditioned accommodations, function halls and restaurant, Waig offers outdoor adventure facilities such as zipline, cable cars and a hanging bridge.

Other spring resorts to consider when in Bukidnon are the municipal-owned Lucky 9 Spring Resort in Dangcagan and the Luan-Luan Spring Resort in Quezon.    

Getting there:

Buses coming from Cagayan de Oro City will pass by the places mentioned above. The bus driver or conductor usually knows the entrance roads going to these resorts so just inform them where you're going.

Where to stay and eat:

Rooms for overnight accommodations are available in MGM Mountain Resort, Edlimar Farm & Spring Resort, RR Family Spring Resort and Waig Crystal Spring Resort. There are restaurants in MGM, RR and Waig but you may also bring or cook your own food.
