COMMUNAL RANCH BUKIDNON: Best Things To Do and How To Get There
The Communal Ranch Bukidnon is like stepping into a ranch wonderland! Trust me, it’s like standing in the middle of a nature masterpiece. The mountain ridges – Paminahawa, Kapayawan, Abiogan, Ginawahan, Kaanibungan – all in one stunning panorama.
They call it the “Home of the Country’s Finest Cowboys,” and guess what? It’s the only Local Government in the Philippines rocking a full-on ranch. How cool is that! After one and a half hour trip from Dahilayan, we arrived at the Communal ranch around 12 noon. It was a bit cloudy then that’s why we didn’t feel the heat of the sun.
But, going there was a breeze! The view is straight out of a movie – cinematic vibes all the way to the ranch. Well, it was really used as a movie location back in 2008. The blockbuster film “Love Me Again,” starring Angel Locsin and Piolo Pascual, was shot in the town’s vast grazing land and valleys of the ranch.
The Communal Ranch can be searched on Google Map, so don’t worry about getting lost.
THings To Do in Communal Ranch Bukidnon
Once you arrive in the ranch, the possibilities are endless! Grab your camera because Communal Ranch is a photo paradise.
Meadows, farm animals, the pond, and oh horseback riding – it’s a visual feast! The breathtaking view of the nature is what excites you to visit the Communal Ranch. There’s nothing like it in the Philippines, but there are few things you can do to maximize your experience.
1. Horseback Riding
For just ₱250 pesos, you get a whole hour of riding like a ranch pro. Yee-haw! It’s a must-try. I mean, picture yourself trotting through the ranch and wind in your hair, it’s an ultimate cowgirl/boy moment. The vibe is lakas maka haciendera.

I love the rawness of it!
Okay, here’s my honest thoughts about the Communal Ranch in Impasug-ong Bukidnon. This is my opinion after visiting there.
Sure, the ranch is gorgeous! It’s probably one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen in the Philippines. It’s like a mini New Zealand with all the farm animals and the view of the mountain ridges, plus the horseback riding experience. It’s a nature therapy at its finest.
But for me, it’s a one-time kind destination. After visiting it for the first time, I’m probably not gonna visit it soon again. I mean, there’s nothing much you can do there aside from taking a lot of photos and videos.
If you’re going to Bukidnon just for the Communal Ranch, it’s not that worth it unless you’re a person who find tranquility in just staring a nature’s view. But if you’re an adventure-seeker like me, make sure to visit other destinations in the province, like Dahilayan Forest Park, Abbey of Transfiguration, Lover’s Lane, Kaamulan Grounds, and Pine Ridge.
