Nasuli Cold Spring Resort: Our summer paradise

Finding a new adventure this summer would always be fun. The search for an excursion, of course, appeared to be even more exciting for me since doing so would let me combat the stress brought about by this long-standing COVID-19 pandemic. And yes, I had enough – struggles and sufferings. For that reason, this summertime would permit me to visit a new place to take some time off and unwind.

And yes, my phone just vibrated. A friend on the other line might talk to me. So, I checked my phone, wondered why my friend wanted to talk to me, and called me this pandemic season for no valid reasons. My friend and I knew the stern quarantine protocols and social distancing policies. However, such a friend called me for an adventure of a lifetime.  

And then, my phone rang again.

“Hi, what’s up?” I just asked. I was a bit excited though. He told me that he and his other friends would go on a day trip to Nasuli Cold Spring Resort.

“What about the quarantine protocols and the social distancing policies?” I asked again.

“Don’t fret. Don’t get panicked. Everything will be all right!”

Finally, I agreed. Anyway, I felt bored all year long. The COVID-19 pandemic did, however, prolong my agony and boredom. I had to go outside and feel the bliss and grace of nature. My fear of going outside waned. So, I asked when we would go. To my surprise, he said we would go two hours after our small conversation. He told me that he would pick me up. So, I had to pack my things up and prepare for my wallets for the expenses.

Well, Nasuli Cold Spring Resort was remarkable. My experience at the resort gave me chances to enjoy my life. One of my friends once told me that life is short. He told me that I should spend my life to the fullest. And yes, he would always be right. I would never have a chance to visit the places where I loved staying and traveling like Nasuli Cold Spring Resort.

Moreover, I took my first plunge. I confirmed that the water was cold. The feeling was nice though. However, I chose to keep all the details of excitement and fun since, for sure, you might have different shares of stories on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. However, the cold and revivifying water of Nasuli Spring Resort seemed a seamless means to celebrate life and enjoy my weekend hideaway. I remember a friend of mine who visited the place. Her name is Ms. Bren Gallardo, and she could be an excellent endorser of the resort. I bet! Her instagrammable and picture-perfect photo seemed astounding on social media sites like Facebook as she added glamor and grace to the resort. Maybe, next time, the resort would treat Ms. Bren and her friends, as well as Misamis Oriental Journal free cottage and other amenities for this article (I am just kidding! Who knows the resort would grant me). Ms. Bren Gallardo and her friend(s) highly appreciated the resort very much. Because of Ms. Bren and her friend(s), I decided to take a peek and celebrate life at Nasuli Cold Spring Resort at Barangay Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

How Could We Get There

Well, we might ask how we could get there. We just needed to follow the trail.

    • Firstly, we could take a bus at Ecoland Terminal bound for Cagayan de Oro if we were in Davao City. We should tell the bus conductor to drop us off at Barangay Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. We needed to make sure that we should go to Nasuli so that the driver could drop us off at the landmark of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Church. From there, we needed to ask for direction from the commercialized single motorcycle drivers to take a walk going to the resort. It would only take 1 kilometer to travel from the INC landmark.
    • Secondly, we could take a bus from Cagayan de Oro bound for Davao, Kibawe, Valencia, or Wao. We needed to inform the bus conductor to drop us off at the landmark of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Church in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

Fees & Rates

    • Cottage Fee @ ₱300.00 – ₱400.00
    • Entrance Fee @ ₱40.00
    • Inflatable Floaters @ ₱50.00
    • Life Jacket @ ₱50.00
    • Table Fee @ ₱200.00

We would surely note that fees and rates mentioned here might show some discrepancies from the time of posting or publishing this article. it would be better if we should contact the management of the resort using the information below.

    • Business Hours: 5 AM – 6 PM (Daily)
    • Contact: 0906-165-6428

Just a Few Reminders

    • We noticed that no lifeguards were on duty. Thus, we had to swim at our own risk.
    • The pool is for everyone. We needed to check, monitor, and watch our children near the pool.
    • We could not purchase alcoholic beverages and cigarettes inside the resort due to prohibition.
    • We could only eat our food at our rented cottages.

So, what are we waiting for? We must pack our things and visit Nasuli Cold Spring Resort at Barangay Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

Dahilayan Adventure Park: Recreating memories

Making our lives even more meaningful lies in our hands. It means that happiness depends on our decisions on how we perceive things. We just have to decide whether or not we choose to be happy. Despite the hassle and strain these past few days, we must find time to smile. Since we all have the luxury of life to see great moments and things, we must see it through our selves and through our character, positive thinking, and vibe. And yes, we know that life has always been challenging and problematic. We have struggle just a little bit and hold on to life. However, it does not mean that we have to surrender without trying to resolve those issues. We have to do something valuable. By resolving those problems, we can simply ignore those varying economic, health, political, religious, and social fiasco by finding means and ways to be happy. We find means and ways to channel our stress. Perhaps, Dahilayan Forest Park Resort allows us forget those depressing conditions of all the things around us. Through Dahilayan Forest Park Resort, we can spend moments to take a glimpse to witness one of the famous tourist destinations in the region and the country, as well. As such, creating good memories at Dahilayan Forest Park Resort has been the best decision to make and to enjoy the collection of pleasurable events for all guests – family members and individual guests.

Dahilayan Adventure Park does not only serve daring and exploratory treats, but it does also give visitors time to create and re-create cavernous memories. Some people can confirm this one if they try to explore the miracles of Dahilayan Adventure Park; however, others cannot say a word. Sir Jan Teddie Añasco Alforo and his special someone, as well as his friends, have some stories to tell. They may be off the radar to tell their narratives, but we surely knew that they had such great memories in the park.

Food at Dahilayan Forest Park Resort

Dahilayan Adventure Park or Forest Park Resort serves delicious and nutritious food for guests and visitors. The food has always been tasty. We can surely love the taste of the food at Dahilayan Forest Park Resort. After the excitement and fun doing some of those activities, we can surely enjoy the deliciously cooked, instagrammable food display, and carefully prepared food.

From this angle, we can see the buttery bacon and the fresh leaf of lettuce with a bread bun on top. Isn’t this food too watery to put it into our mouths where the buttery bacon will slide down from our hungry-mouth to the side of our lips? Well, we may find it satisfying to listen to the crunchy and fresh lettuce the moment we nibble at the cheesy butter in it. It tastes yummy, right? 

Well, this one tastes fresh and healthy. We can eat these vegetables without complaining because those ones give us good health. The slice of cucumbers and tomatoes and the freshly cut lettuce and other green leafy vegetables give us a bowl of goodness and health. 

Activities and Facilities

Dahilayan Forest Park Resort gives us numerous activities to enjoy and love. Numerous exciting actions are available if we want to consider doing all of them.

Well, for travelers outside Misamis Oriental, we can ask assistance from Magnum Radyo with its Carpool Services located at Lim Ketkai Center, Cagayan de Oro. I presume that everyone in the area of Cagayan de Oro knows where the Magnum Radyo is. When we get there, we book our trip right away. If we want an early-morning adventure, we need to go to the Magnum Radyo Ticketing Office for its Carpool Service at Lim Ketkai Mall probably at 5 AM so that we can travel at 6 AM and arrive at our destination between 7 AM and 8 AM.

Bukidnon Falls: Our waterfall-hopping adventure

The province of Bukidnon has been labeled as the high-ground paradise in the core of Mindanao. As a landlocked domain in the Philippines with its abundance of flora, Bukidnon has become the place where people get food crops and other harvests in the Northern Mindanao region. Malaybalay, as the capital city of Bukidnon, flourishes and grows because of its agricultural GDP source. As an interior and noncoastal region, it borders with Misamis Oriental, Agusan del Sur, Davao del Norte, Cotabato, Lanao del Sur, and Lanao del Norte. However, Bukidnon as the center of Mindanao has become the rice bowl, fruit, and vegetable basket in Region X. Despite that amazing description, Bukidnon has amazing waterfalls to attract more tourists.

An Eye-Catching Backdrop in Bukidnon at the Heart of Mindanao

Laligan Falls

Local tourists can witness the beauty of nature and the grandeur of Bukidnon once they will visit Barangay Laligan, Valencia City. They can see and even experience another concealed charm of Bukidnon, the four-series cascading waters of Laligan Falls. Many tourists do not know exactly where it is and if it exists, but Laligan Falls stands right there waiting for local trekkers to explore.

An Intriguing Swim Here – Alalum Falls for us to Visit

Alalum Falls

Alalum falls gives a towering 148-foot high cascading water near the main road. Bordered by lush undergrowth with a viewing top deck, Alalum Falls in Kisolon, Sumilao in Bukidnon attracts us with wonder. It positions itself along the main highway in-between Impasug-ong and Sumilao municipalities. The story tells that Alalum falls as the soaring waterfall was once an iconic holidaymaker destination of Bukidnon Province.

An Awesome Curtain Waterfall in Bukidnon – Balisbisan Falls

Balisbisan Falls

Balisbisan falls is located at Sitio Kibangan Road, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. Its water source does not come from the river. The water comes from the files of rocks in which it flows from them. As mentioned, the water, which sprouts from the rocks, forms like curtains.

An Amazing Cedar Falls in Bukidnon – A Perfect Site to Swim

Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls is in Impalutao, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. It has three major falls namely; Gantungan Falls, Natigbasan Falls, and Dila Falls plus a swimming pool. Local tourists can reach the site less than an hour of hiking. As well, the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Impasug-ong, Bukidnon developed the place and made Cedar Falls a reforestation project. Cedar Falls becomes an eco-park. This reforestation project has a land area of around 1,703 hectares that give us a cold spring, unsoiled river, tempting cold spinning pool, natural woodlands, progressing mountains, and Cedar waterfalls.

Besigan Falls: A cascade of water to plunge

Finding the best place to dive, plunge, and swim seems exciting in Besigan Falls. We may question why it is exciting; however, we can only confirm it because of its convenience and location. Well, Besigan Falls is just a fifteen-minute hike or walk from Besigan Elementary School. Also, local trekkers know where Besigan is. It is a barangay in the city of Cagayan de Oro with more than 1,670 inhabitants according to the 2015 Census. In other words, this unexplored and important place represents 0.25% of the total population of Cagayan de Oro. Records from the Local Government Units (LGU) provide a surprising piece of information that the population of Besigan grows from 377 in 1990 to 1,673 in 2015 as mentioned on Philatlas.Com. For 25 years, Besigan grows and inhabits 1,296 people based on the 2015 Census. Wikipedia, an online dictionary and source of information, gives details of Besigan, which positions itself at approximately 8.2647, 124.5557 in the abundant island of Mindanao. Vacationers know that the elevation at these coordinates will be at the estimates of 390.4 meters above sea level.

A Curve Ahead on Besigan Road by Datu Cordoba

As well, the adjacent barangays of Besigan share a common border with San Isidro, Talakag, Bukidnon; Rogongon, Iligan; Barangay 3 (Poblacion), Talakag, Bukidnon; Barangay 1 (Poblacion), Talakag, Bukidnon; Barangay 5 (Poblacion), Talakag, Bukidnon; Tignapoloan, Cagayan de Oro; and Dansolihon, Cagayan de Oro according to Philatlas.Com. This place gives new hope to holidaymakers who work hard to promote local tourism and to improve the area. Mr. Datu Cordoba, a cacao farmer from Cagayan de Oro and an acquaintance on Facebook, introduces the magical and wonderful area to the local tourists. The green grass along the roads and the cold atmosphere in the area give us a simple, yet happy adventure to see the cascading waters of Besigan Falls.

Walking down on the Misty Road of Besigan by Datu Cordoba

Oh, how do we get there? Some people are asking where to go to this awesome place to dive. They cannot just resist going to the calm, cool, and refreshing waterfalls hidden somewhere in the borders. The misty road going to the area evokes memories of the silence of life and love. The misty road appears looks surreal. Such a setting reminds us to take our childhood dreams and wishes back in time. Since the place is new, we can go directly to Besigan Elementary School and find someone who can help us tour around. We know we like this. Well, this place seems inviting. 

Sinulom Falls: A hidden treasure of nature

We have been talking about Bolao Cold Spring lately. This time we need to mention Sinulom Falls since it is near the area. As well, Sinulom Falls gives us another exciting adventure. Exciting as it is, we can surely enjoy the running water from the Sinulom Falls itself. Well, we do not need to uncover the mystery of why this tourist spot has its unique name. We only need to unfold the truth that Sinulom Falls seems abundant in terms of water in which all people nearby choose to visit the area and take a dive into the water.

We will realize that Sinulom Falls has 28 waterfalls. Before this flowing water reaches Cagayan de Oro to be called Cagayan de Oro River, we can take a glimpse of the eye-catching water and plunge. As nature lovers, we appreciate the areas as it offers us the lavish green landscape that adjoins the place. To imagine it now, we think we make a picnic and adventure into the deep forest.  

Visiting Sinulom Falls and Enjoying it Right Here can be Fun…

As well, Sinulom Falls offers us opportunities to discard pressure and stress. It relaxes our minds as we walk into the destination and step into the rocks. As we head down and tread on the crystal clear waters, our feet and toes begin to relax as the cold water attempts to ease the stress of our legs. We can imagine we stroll around the place where we take our family members and friends to experience and witness the lush green venue for relaxation.

Additionally, Sinulom Falls is seen along Talakag, Bukidnon. However, it is best viewed in Tinagpoloan, Cagayan de Oro. According to a source, the owner of the land of Sinulom Falls is Councilor Jay Roa Pascual. To avoid confusion, Sinulom Falls lies within San Isidro, Talakag, Bukidnon, but the entrance to go there is Barangay Tinagpoloan, Cagayan de Oro.

Enchanting Flowing Water that Relaxes your Feet and Toes

Moreover, we have more options to go to Sinulom Falls. We get there by jeepney or van. However, we better go there using a private vehicle. It seems pretty convenient to use private vehicles to avoid any hullabaloo. However, if we use our vehicles, we make sure that we use a four-by-four (4×4) pick-up type with spiked tires since going to the place appears to be murky when it rains. We can also use our four-by-two (4×2) vehicle if we want; however, we need to leave it at the basketball court.

Finally, we need to prepare some amount of money for the expenses. One website can give us more details. To be sure, we can check out the Happy Trip Website.
