The Malaybalay is the capital city of the Province of Bukidnon. During the early days, most of the inhabitants were natives of Bukidnon. Later on, people from different parts of Visayas, Mindanao and even in Luzon came tosettle down here in Malaybalay because it is such a beautiful place with all the panoramic views around.
The climate of Malaybalay is cold even during the hottest days of summer. For this, Malaybalay can be compared to Baguio City which is the summer capital of the country. Malaybalay can be the summer capital of the south.
The people here are peace – loving, even if they come from different parts of the country, with different cultures, beliefs and dialect, there are no conflicts among them.
