Bukidnon Side Trip : The Center for Ecological Development and Recreation (CEDAR)

It was a spur of the moment decision to visit The Center for Ecological Development and Recreation (CEDAR) in Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. We were having our lunch and we discussed of going to Lake Apo in the morning. I was with the Pinoy Travel bloggers and some of us were already panning to depart Malaybalay early in the morning so we opened the idea of visiting CEDAR instead.

We chartered a jeepney and head our way to CEDAR. It was about an hour trip from Malaybalay City. We were having fun the entire journey. The people I was with were really cool so there was no dull moments with them.

We paid P10 entrance fee and we started trekking. The center is home to hundreds of mahogany trees and the three waterfalls. We spent about 2 hours to explore the center. 

From the CEDAR entrance, Gantungan Falls is a walking distance of approximately 720 meters, Natigbasan is 780 meters and Dila at approximately 960 meters. These falls offer breathtaking presence of granite and rock boulders.
