C = Chocolate Hills



Chocolate Hills

Peace!

One of the most popular landmarks in the country, the Chocolate Hills is a very interesting and unusual sight in the sense that these 1000+ cone shaped hills were all over a land covering 50sq. kilometers. It is called Chocolate Hills because the grasses covering the hills turn brown during summertime, making it look like little chocolate droplets.

It was November of 2008 that I first set foot in Bohol, and of course, would I pass up the chance to see the hills? There were two places where one can see the hills - one can either check it through the Carmen Peak, or through the Sagbayan Peak. These pictures were taken from the Carmen Peak, where one can see a close view of the biggest hill.

Big thanks to my British friend K for taking me here.

This is a great shot Jen! Looks like Hershey chocolate kisses do you have them over there? Amazing how green it is. We need rain here very badly and everything is so dry.

It is amazing what form the earth takes through geological activity. These are very whimsical....

I like this! It's very different to what I expected, but gorgeous. I wonder what it would look like all brown though...

They're rather wonderful, aren't they? They look volcanic in origin.

I'd never heard of these hills and surely I've never seen anything like them. Thanks for sharing this information -
