Chocolate Hills Bohol

The Chocolate Hills of Bohol, The Philippines

The Filipino Island of Bohol is best known for two things: tarsiers and what I came to think of as an exaggerated teletubby land known as The Chocolate Hills, a strange landscape of 1,268 eerie and bizarre conical mounds dotted a round the centre of the island…

So-called because during the dry season the grass on the hillsides dries up and the 40-120-meter cones turn brown to become reminiscent of a scattering of Hershey’s Kisses as far as the eye can see…

The viewing deck in the middle of the Chocolate Hills – here you can take cheesy perspective shots and survey the area but it is more fun to drive amongst the hills themselves, maybe like this couple, you can hire your own moto.

The Chocolate Hills are in the middle of the island of Bohol and are easy to visit on a day trip by car, minivan or by moto (which would be a great deal more fun!)

You can visit the hills in conjunction with a trip to the Tarsier sanctuary, butterfly garden and other attractions on the island and you’ll be able to stop for lunch on a Loboc River Cruise, and drive through the man-made forest on your way through.
