Bukidnon is a haven for photographers, especially those who like pastoral scenes, landscapes, and waterfalls. Here are reasons why.

6. Alalum Falls, Brgy. Kisolon, Sumilao, Bukidnon
If you take the BuDa (Bukidnon-Davao) Road from Cagayan de Oro City, this waterfalls is just near the Sayre highway. Alalum Falls serves as the boundary between the municipalities of Sumilao and Impasug-ong. It is approximately 148 feet in height.
Bok and I have taken these photos on our way to Malaybalay City. Our destination is the Jesuit Retreat House in Impalambong, a few meters away from San Isidro College, a former school of the Benedicting Sisters of Tutzing.
The landmark are these colorful Gawad Kalinga houses.

7. Atugan Bridge, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon.
The local government claims that this bridge is the highest in the country, with a depth of 64.5 meters. Whether this claim holds true today, the view of the valley below is breathtaking, especially with the rushing river that snakes through it.
