Name: NASULI SPRING RESORT
Location: Malaybalay City, Bukidnon
Nasuli Spring Resort is one of the ‘must-see’ places in the province of Bukidnon in southern Philippines. It is ideal for travelers who prefer the off-the-track destination spots. The resort is not frequented by tourists and very few locals visit the place.
The Nasuli Spring Resort is a freshwater lagoon. Its water is icy cold even during the hottest time of the day. The lagoon is approximately 15 feet deep and surrounded by lush greeneries. The water is bluish with a tinge of green.
Nasuli freshwater spring is located in Barangay (village) Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. The province of Bukidnon sits on the northern-most part of the island of Mindanao in southern Philippines.
Nasuli is a Bisayan term which means “reversed.” The local folks named the place ‘nasuli’ because the spring’s headwaters’ elevation is much lower than the lagoon. It seems that the water is flowing in reverse, thus the name ‘nasuli.’
It is a no-frills site. There are no accommodations for overnight stay, no restaurants and bars, and no nearby store. Just raw nature at its best.
HOW TO GET THERE:
1. Nasuli Spring is about 15 kilometers south of Malaybalay City proper.
2. From Malabalay, you may take a non-airconditioned bus or multicab going to Valencia City. Tell the conductor or driver to drop you off at the entrance of Nasuli in Barangay Bangcud.
3. The road going to Nasuli is at the right side of the higway going to Valencia City. From the highway, walk about 500 meters to get to the spring resort.
4. Entrance fee is only 10 pesos. There are no stores nearby so bring your own food and drinks. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited inside the resort.
5. There are also no available accommodations for overnight stay.
6. As the lagoon is 15-ft deep, take extra care when swimming. There are no lifeguards around so it is better to come here in group to ensure your safety.
