Bukidnon is derived from the word "bukid," which means "mountain" or "hill,” and is the famed “Fruit and Vegetable Basket of Mindanao,” as a drive to the province’s roadways provides magnificent vistas of the rich undulating mountains and enormous fields of corn, rice, pineapple, and many other agricultural products. Most of the year, the province has a chilly climate, especially at night, with temperatures ranging from 22-10° Celsius from December to February. The cool climate allows for the slower ripening of crops, giving an unrivaled flavor to its fruits and vegetables. It is a popular tourist destination in the summer. 


The mountain ranges, namely Mt. Kimangkil Range, Pantaron Range, Mt. Tangkulan Range, Mt. Tago Range, Mt. Kalatungan Range Natural Park, and Mt. Kitanglad Range Natural Park, are where you can find luxuriant tropical rainforests. These ranges host several watersheds that are vital for ecological and economic balance. Mt. Kitanglad is one of the 7 ASEAN Heritage Parks in the country and towers at 2,938 meters. These ranges are also the habitat of critically endangered, economically important, and endemic fauna like the Bukidnon Woodcock, the endangered Philippine Eagle, and flora such as the Rafflesia, known as the world’s giant flower. Bukidnon is not only rich in natural wonders but also in culture, as it is home to the seven tribes of Bukidnon: Manobo, Talaandig, Higaonon, Bukidnon, Matigsalug, Umayamnon, and Tigwahanon.

In Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, you can find these trees gracing the plaza, Capitol Grounds, and even lining the main highway. These trees typically burst into full bloom during the summer, with their splendor enhanced after the leaves have fallen, leaving only the vibrant flowers.
