LOOK: The majestic Manalog falls in Bukidnon
After taking a quick coffee break at Fortune Valley, Malaybalay City (check out its scenic view!), why don’t you head to Manalog Falls?
About an hour away from Can-ayan, Manalog Falls seems to be getting more attention these days. Why wouldn’t it when you are surrounded by majestic waterfalls, lush fauna and the calmness of Mother Nature?
According to Malaybalay nature lover Enrico Gil Asentista, who gamely shared these photos, it’s best to bring a motorcycle, an SUV, pickup or any vehicle that can cross a small creek and traverse stony roads. You can also commission a habal-habal driver from Malaybalay City proper. Make sure you properly agree on the rate before you start your adventure!
Entrance fee is Php 50.00 per head. Best to coordinate with local barangay officials but essentially, all you have to do, according to Enrico is follow the main path from Can-ayan to Kibalabag and then finally to Manalog.
Fun fact: Locals also call the waterfalls “Kahulogan Falls”
Travel tips: bring your own food and water as stores may be scarce along the way. Bring extra clothes, wear comfortable shoes (preferably those fit for trekking and for water bodies) and keep emergency numbers on hand.
