Chocolate Hills, Bohol Island

3.9
#1 of 177 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. Put Chocolate Hills at the forefront of your travel plans using our Bohol Island trip itinerary builder.
