Chocolate Hills, Bohol Island

#1 of 219 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.

  • Not much to say about this that hasn't been said before. I found it the hills to be interesting, and definantly worth seeing, despite the fact that it was a cloudy and rainy day. I'm sure it would've ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful views but very VERY crowded. And many of the sightseer tours are very rude and often don't speak Tagalog or English so be aware that you're likely to encounter many with a language barrier. Very steep climb so be aware of this for those who have children or elderly, but there are stopping points along the climb so you can catch your breath. Also a nice touch with the signage you can use for pics...
  • We came to visit this place before summer begins but we really enjoyed the view. The entrance fee is a bit pricey just to see the view and climb the viewing deck. They should put enough staff in the stairs area to help those elderly go up to the deck.
  • nice views.. enjoyed riding buggy cars. awesome experience
  • Better to bring your own food and drinks because everything is 120% overpriced! 40 pesos for a cup of instant coffee. 65 pesos for a bottle of cold coffee. 70+ for a small bottled water. The climb up the viewing deck is a bit steep but there’s a rest stop midway where you can rest. Parking space is plentiful and security and staff are helpful.
