From Dusk till Dawn at Bukidnon (Day 2)

]Our second day at Bukidnon started early with a dawn mass held at St. Labrador Parish in Malaybalay, just across from where we are staying.

I’ve always believed that surrendering your day to Him is the best way of starting it right.

After the mass, we started on our feet again in search for a good place to eat.

Luckily we found one just across Gaisano Mall.

Breakfast at Bukidnon

Being a pizza addict, I was immediately captivated by the menu that the store offered.

Now that we are fully recharged, it’s now time to explore Bukidnon!

Carmelite Monastery – at Pal-ing, Brgy Kalasungay

Getting here is not difficult as there are a lot of multicabs and jeepneys that goes to Kalasungay.

One would surely love the road trip going here, for aside from the beautiful sceneries that your eyes will enjoy, the people here are also accommodating. Some vendors even requested for their photos to be taken.

Alalum Falls in Sumilao Bukidnon

A surprising thing about this falls is that is can be found just along the highway. No need for long treks in rocky roads. All you’ll have to do is get off the bus that goes to Sumilao and voalah! there it is!

Continuing with our backpacking trip, we’ve found this poor dog along the street. Funny coz from afar I’ve mistaken it at first as a sheep. Baa baa baa! LOL

This image of a tree trunk also caught my attention. If you’re that green minded person, I’m sure you’ll think of this as something else! *wink

Moving on, we headed to our next destination.

Kampo Juan Eco-Adventure Park

The original plan was to visit Dahilayan Eco Park, known to have the longest zipline in the Philippines. However because of several factors – (1) of motorcycle drivers asking of sky high prices (800pesos?!) just to bring you to Dahilayan, (2) the fact that it’s a Sunday and surely a peak time to visit the said park, and (3) of the recommendation of a kind multicab driver – we were led to Kampo Juan.
The place is just a few kilometers from the main highway! Thats just not it, on our way we also pass by the Mac Arthur Shrine. It was said that Mac Arthur said the line “I SHALL RETURN” not in Palo Leyte, but rather he made it here in Diclum, Manolo Fortich.
Kampo Juan has also put up a zipline — not as long as the one in Dahilayan, but surely a fun one with a twist for adventurers with a sense of the absurd: besides the zipline, you can also choose to ride a bicycle on a tightrope suspended over a ravine.
Apart from the zip, the place also offers the Hanging Bridge that snakes out over the rough forest trail below.
Other than zipline and hanging bridge, Kampo Juan also offers parajumping activities, the ultralight, rapelling activity, unicycling and other stuff.
I also found the way they named their comfort rooms here cute. Ondoy and Inday. 
                     
Del Monte Plantation, Bukidnon
After the exhilarating experience at Kampo Juan, we headed to Del Monte Plantation in Camp Philips.

Here, we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon and witness the sunset, with a kwek-kwek in hand. =)
