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.

Food at Dahilayan Forest Park Resort

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.

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.

Bolao Cold Spring: An adventure to consider

Are you looking for a new adventure? You can take a different escapade if you try to consider a new view without spending much money or breaking your bank. You can surely think of going somewhat homegrown and local. You know you have many options to choose from, but you realize you have to consider nature, cold spring, flowing watercourses, and mountainous ranges as well. As you think of the best place to go, you ask yourselves why you fail to include a new place in your list. By then, you can think of going to Bolao Cold Spring. Well, many of you do not have any idea where Bolao Cold Spring is. To say, the first face of Bolao Cold Spring is in Barangay San Isidro, Talakag, Bukidnon, and the second face is in Barangay Tinagpoloan, Cagayan de Oro. In other words, Bolao Cold Spring unites two places in one adventure that gives local tourists and vacationers moments of fun and enjoyment.

Dive into the Cold and Refreshing Crystal Clear Water at Bolao Cold Spring

Bolao Cold Spring appears to be one of the stunning and natural-made places in Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon. Local tourists and trekkers recurrently visit, especially if it is summer. Because Bolao Cold Spring gives us refreshingly cold water, we cannot resist diving into it. The sparkling clear, cool, fresh, and calming water from the Sinulom Falls mesmerizes us to dive. We surely love the ice-cold crystal clear water. We need to have our food and snacks plus other refreshments since we still have enough time walking in the distance. We have to trek and pass by the rocky roads with the lavish green mountains nearby. As we head toward the destination, we can reach the narrow footbridge to go through it and settle ourselves in the simple, yet home-produced cottage.

Villa Imelda Farm Resort: A paradise to visit

We featured a few beach resorts in the province of Misamis Oriental for months. We even emphasized the predominant tourist destinations among local and foreign tourists in the region. There were plenty of them, so we managed to choose each one of them. We made our promises to cover all beach resorts and other tourist spots in the region, and we highlighted them one by one until we finished endorsing them to our readers. Additionally, we promoted those inexpensive, as well as those classy, glamorous, and ritzy, yet reasonably priced beach resorts, hotels, inns, and suites. Regardless of the prices and venues, we confirmed that all of them, without exception,  had some unique features and qualities to offer. To say this, we succeeded in endorsing Misamis Oriental’s pride.

A Cool and Refreshing Cerulean Blue Pool Water at Villa Imelda Farm Resort

And yes, we did our best to promote the gems of Misamis Oriental. However, we were not saying that we finished featuring the best spots in the region since more beautiful spots just sprouted within the vicinity. As we promoted some of Misamis Oriental’s tourist destinations, we gained guests and visitors alike from time to time. However, it seemed unfair if we failed to mention other exhilarating and classy, and urbane tourist spots, as well as farm and garden resorts in the adjacent locations of Misamis Oriental. Well, we talked about Bukidnon and its widely held tourist attraction – the Villa Imelda Farm Resort. We were in love though.

Our beloved, charming, and lovely friend, Ms. Bren Gallardo, as well as her friends, has been visiting Villa Imelda Farm Resort for years. It seemed that Ms. Bren Gallardo herself has loved the place and that she has kept on coming back for years. Of course, her last visit to Villa Imelda Farm Resort caught our attention lately. She embraced the beauty of nature, and her cameras could speak about the place. The farm resort wowed us with its wonder. Its panoramic view captivated us and even compelled us to visit the place.
