Real Estate Investment in Malaybalay Heres Why the Probinsya Life in Bukidnon is Better Lumina Affordable House and Lot for Sale Philippines

Since the pandemic started, many Filipinos working in the greater Manila area have returned to their provinces for so many reasons aside from the pricy rent—some feel safer from COVID-19 in the province, some want to take time and recharge, while some just want to live the probinsya life they’ve left and been missing for years. Whatever their reason may be, a probinsya life is, without a doubt, something we should all experience at least once...or for good. The question is: is probinsya life really going to help you physically, mentally, and financially in the years to come? 


The short answer is: it depends. But one thing we’re certain about is far south of the country lies a landlocked province and a city that might convince you to choose life in the countryside and proceed to real estate investing —Malaybalay City in Bukidnon.


Malaybalay is a peaceful and progressive area in Mindanao that features what you will enjoy in the world, the fullness of life in an ecologically-balanced environment, providing a well-developed livelihood based on agriculture and agro-forest industrial center.


Whether you’re providing a primary home for your family or thinking of a new real estate investment, we will help you decide why the city of Malaybalay is an ideal area for your future home.


What you’ll love about living in Bukidnon


1. Their culture is very much alive

Malaybalay Bukidnon with rich culture and traditions

In Bukidnon, there are seven tribes: Talaandig, Higa-onon, Bukidnon, Umayamnon, Matigsalug, Manobo and Tigwahanon. The tribes there are indigenous and their names are derived from the rivers or watershed areas that they inhabited. 


And while some other places are consumed by modernity and technology, in the test of time, Province of Bukidnon does not and will not forget their roots, traditions, and culture. To this day, their culture is very much alive and what’s great about this is that, even though the Malaybalay Bukidnon is progressing and adapting to the current time, there are locals who ensure that they are keeping what their ancestors have left them through passing the knowledge and practices to the children.


One of their ways to preserve their traditions and culture amid the rise of technology is holding the Kaamulan Festival annually where the locals showcase the unique indigenous culture of Bukidnon. It celebrates the customs and traditions of the seven tribes in Bukidnon. 


“Kaamulan” was derived from the Binukid word “amul” meaning “to gather.” This gathering can also mean so many things: a datuship ritual, a wedding ceremony, a thanksgiving festival during harvest time, a peace pact, or all of these put together. 


2. You are closer to nature.

Get closer to nature when you invest in Malaybalay Bukidnon

Mt. Kitanglad - If you crave adventure and love taking greater heights, Mt. Kitanglad is one of the best mountains you should consider hiking. Since it is one of the highest mountains in the country, expect that the trails here will be more challenging but what awaits you are beautiful views and rich biodiversity that make your journey worth it.

Here’s a fun story, according to legends, Mt. Kitanglad’s name was derived from the word tanglad which means lemon grass. It was named such after a great flood submerged the land and only the mountain’s peak, which was the size of a blade of lemon grass was visible.

Mt. Dulang-Dulang - Mindanao surely is home to the highest mountains in the country. One of which is Mt. Dulang-Dulang stands at 2,938 meters above sea level, making it the second highest mountain in the Philippines.
