“What you see before you, my friend is the result of a lifetime of chocolate.”
― Katharine Hepburn

Do you like chocolate? What is your favorite chocolate? Could give some of your chocolates?

Let’s travel to the place where the gigantic chocolate could be found. Just fasten your seatbelt and start your vivid imagination.

The Chocolate Hills are probably Bohol’s most famous tourist attraction. They look like giant mole hills, or as some say, women’s breasts, and remind us of the hills in a small child’s drawing. The Chocolate Hills are located in the center of Bohol and can be reached form Alona Beach by a 2-hour ride by car or van. The Chocolate Hills of Bohol are spread over an area covering the towns of SagbayanBatuanCarmenBilarSierra Bullones, and Valencia. Most of the hills though are found in Sagbayan, Batuan, and Carmen, the latter having the most uniform cone-shaped hills.

The famed Chocolate Hills of Bohol are not only two but more than 1,268 cone-shaped hills – a very strange geological formation that has baffled a lot of geologists. The hills are spread over an area of 50 square kilometers or more and vary in size from 30 meters to 120 meters in height.
