Imagine yourself waking up in a stone-house in the middle of a jungle farm with tree branches filled with endemic birds. Imagine yourself being served with home cooked meal with ingredients straight from the farm. And imagine yourself spending the entire day swimming in a refreshing, cool, white water river. Well, you don’t have to imagine. It’s here and it’s near.
Just 30 minutes away from Cagayan de Oro City is a paradise that represents the abundance of mother nature… The Ki Bathala Gardens. It is located in Talakag, Bukidnon. Mind you, this place is used to be a chemically poisoned banana plantation that was turned back into a healthy jungle teeming with life through the efforts of hardworking men and women who are peace and nature lovers.
The Ki Bathala Gardens is a must visit place for those who have tired body and soul who are seeking some solace. You can experience here a perfect date with your loved ones with nothing at night but fireflies that light up the jungle with the moons and stars in the sky. If you are planning to go in large group, this garden has opened a mountain resort for everyone.
