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.

  • If you did the 120 steps to the viewing platforms, you are rewarded with a super view over the hills and the countryside. Admission costs around 50 pesos and is definitely worth it. A must see on Bohol.

  • They are a set of 1268 conical hills which in principle are remainders of corals of hundreds of thousands of years ago. His name is given by the color you have during the dry season because the grass covered dries and adopts a chocolate-brown. The visit does not explain much of the place and it is interesting to be documented before. A visit is a must if you are in bohol, but too focused on tourism.
