RURAL LIVING | Road Views from Malaybalay City, Bukidnon to Banisilan, North Cotabato

Updated Photos #1 - Mount Kalatungan Ranges
Updated Photos #2 - Mount Kalatungan Ranges-nearer view
Every time I passed by  this portion of the Municipality of Pangantucan, Bukidnon, I see to it that I'll never fail to have at least a minute of glance in this breathtaking view of the Mount Kalatungan Mountain Ranges and its lush vegetation of production areas. Surely will be consoled with a clean and fresh air of a real green environment. 

Mount Kalatungan is one of the preserved and protected water sheds in the Philippines today. This mountain supplies water through its tributaries down to the irrigation system established by NIA. Some benefited areas are Kalilangan, Pangantucan and the Maramag  of the Bukidnon Province.

Municipalities of Kalilangan and Part of the Pangantucan are under the jurisdiction of the 3rd Bukidnon Engineering District and 1st Congressional District.
Bahay Kubo, kahit munti, ang halaman doon, ay sari-sari----my ringing tone.
This Nipa Hut is a temporary shelter for farmers during their farming activities, such as plowing, weeding, harvesting and sowing. The green scenery is really that factor of de-stressing yourself, a medicine in relieving our tensions and a chance in grasping an unpolluted air.
This is part of the Pangantucan of Bukidnon.
Almost of the area of Bukidnon were planted dominantly with sugarcane and was not evenly distributed throughout the province because of the price of sugar today.
The VAN I rode, is ready for hire for a "tour de mindanao". His Number, 0926-856-8777, Rico is his name.
When I do not have interesting subject to take, I took a shot of myself through this side mirror of the van I rode to test my basic skill in photography. Hmmm, so far, I love the shot, and I love my own, that would be sound an interesting subject to me.

The basic services, the Power Grid Lines. This is already part of Kalilangan, Bukidnon.
When I got bored- I took a shot of myself- the passenger at the back was wandering?? Buang man seguro ni? I just cropped him, so you will not be scared.
Sugarcane - harvesting season. This part of the Wao, Lanao del Sur - which is after Kalilangan, Bukidnon.
For whole year round this year, these are the scenery that I will be dealing with.  But anyway, that's probably good for now while planning to go to the Northwestern part of Mindanao to visit again the beaches this coming April, God willing. But this time, I'll make sure that I can take more pictures to share with all the people right there.

The fare rate from Malaybalay City, Bukidnon to Wao, Lanao del Sur is only P130 pesos if VAN. Almost the same fare with the Bus. The estimated distance of Malaybalay City to Wao, Lanao del Sur is 150 kilometers. It is almost @ 1 kilometer per minute that if the speed of your vehicle is approximately in between 70 - 80 Kph (physics).

My next post is "RECONQUERING MANILA"....

    Your decision to explore Northern Mindanao was really that sound so great. To see the other side of the Philippines. Mindanao has a lot of places that was never been exposed yet. Good luck with your next journey.:-).
