Chocolate Hills

A strange yet oddly satisfying geological wonder exists in the heart of Bohol Island. This peculiar landscape showcases a unique and mesmerizing natural beauty, offering visitors a glimpse into the marvels of nature. 1,700+ cone-shaped limestone mounds standing 30-125 meters in height stretch as far as the eye can see, resembling a landscape from a fairytale. During the dry season, the grass covering the hills turns a rich chocolate brown, giving them their famous name. November through May is when things are the ‘most chocolatey.
