Looking for the next destination to visit in the Philippines? If you’re already in the Mindanao region, you should head out to Valencia, Bukidnon. It is a 2nd class component city in the Bukidnon  province and the most populous compared to other cities and municipalities. Located in the heart of the province, it can be likened to Wall Street, if there was one in the city.
Valencia City sits atop the Bukidnon plateau, beside the mighty Pulangi River. Most of the city’s land area is considered rural as it’s full of lush forests and fertile agricultural area. The local government has long-term plans to transform Valencia City into the country’s foremost producer of organic rice.Typical of the region, rolling hills, mountain ranges, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and caves make up Valencia City.
But what sets it apart from the rest of the region is Lake Apo. This serene lake has a beautiful backdrop of hills and mountains and greenery. It’s a crater lake with clear waters, and the cleanest inland body of water in Northern Mindanao.
