#1 of 233 in Nature in Visayas
Explore a symbol of natural abundance and wealth known as Chocolate Hills, declared a National Geological Monument. Hundreds of hills, which turn chocolate brown when the grass dries at the end of the season, make the entire landscape look like rows of chocolate kisses. Featured on the provincial flag, the scattered cone-shaped mounds vary in sizes and shelter various plants and ferns besides grass. Head to Tagbilaran or Sagbayan Peak to observe and photograph the remarkable landscape. Consider visiting with a tour guide who can tell you interesting facts, stories and legends about the site, and propose spots for making amazing photographs.

  • Want to experience the beauty of God's perfect creations? Chocolate Hills in Bohol will take you to the next level of amazing experience. ATV Ride is also a must try activity after a fun viewing of the place.
  • Very special hills, it's just so different, we spend the night in Carmen in a B&B. The owner had his place also very nice renewed. The view was awesome. It was quite a few steps to reach to top of the view point over the chocolate hills.
  • Best to go there starting 3pm so you reach the place 4pm and enjoy the sunset glow at 5pm to 6pm. Of course you must have your own transportation to get there. Plus someone put a pin on Google maps that led us in the middle of nowhere. Better correct this.
  • Chocolate Hills is one unique place to visit. Its natural formation really baffles one's imagination. A stairway to the viewing deck is one good addition to better appreciate this work of Creation - chocolate drops on a huge plain are really awesome to see.
  • The view is very beautiful. If you are in Bohol, you should definitely go there. There are couple stairs to get up but the view really worth it. You can take some snacks or buy souvenirs. We spent there about 1 hr including everything. The sunset would be beautiful.
