In Photos: The Chocolate Hills of Bohol, The Philippines
Written by Jaillan Yehia
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 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.
