Chocolate Hills, Bohol Island

3.9
#1 of 177 in Nature in Visayas
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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. Put Chocolate Hills at the forefront of your travel plans using our Bohol Island trip itinerary builder.

  • Went there in February, really do not understand what to look at, locals are excited and proud to introduce me, I had to take a few pictures in response. Maybe I'm being too picky. Still prefer relaxing at the beach.

  • This site is worth the trip if you are planning to be in Bohol. It is fascinating to see these rounded hills, and the viewing platform at Carmen is excellent. Worth adding to your itinerary of things ...  more »
  • Small cone-shaped mountain gang bashed Observatory Hill climb. Become dry and withered and Brown could be. Stairs to the observation deck are about 300 and is quite steep. Please be prepared that handrails are not the same. And rest on the way, enjoy the views from there. Be careful not blew wind strong. I can take the prickly mounds of chocolate to reach the observation deck and aesthetics, instant pictures.
