Discover the beauty of Chocolate Hills

Monday, April 23, 2012
The Chocolate Hills are  group of unusually shaped hills located in the middle of the island of Bohol in Philippines. This extraordinary landscape is unique to this small island. Estimate there is more than 1,300 individual hills cover more than 50 square kilometers that you can only see in Bohol. The hills are not huge; the highest one barely reaches 120 meters in height. 

Where it is: In the center of Bohol province in the Philippines, on one of the major islands of the Visayas.

Breathtaking views

It’s just amazing to see hundreds of them right in front of you
Viewing deck takes 200 plus steps but the view its all worth it.

Sadly 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the central Visayas in October 2013, the centered  island of Bohol, caused widespread casualties and damages in an area where the economy is largely dependent on tourism. Though the Philippine Department of Tourism has declared the Chocolate Hills open for visitors, it is advisable to research and book ahead, and consider the dilemma of the people as they continue their efforts to rebuild and care for the displaced.
