Bohol Tour: Chocolate Hills
by Lakwatsero

The Famous Chocalate Hills

For our 3rd to the last of stop of our Bohol Tour is the famous "Chocolate Hills". Actually this is the 1st time I will really see it in real, I remember I just used to see it in pictures and through internet, and now, I got the chance to view it beautiful formation and landscapes, for me it was a great felling, to view it's chocolate like hills, and actually thinking that time if it is raining, actually it could be really a chocolate...hehehehe...

After our relaxing lunch break by the Loboc-Loay River, day trip continued. It was a long drive compared to the stops we had in the morning and so we had some time to snooze. Finally, we arrived after almost an hour drive, there was a gate and a road going up where we passed through and paid the entrance fee of 50php each.

My Preggy Officemate in White....hehehehe!!!! gogogo...bhel!!!!!

Kuya Ciano (tour driver), together with my Tito Efren just dropped us because he had to park somewhere else below the hill and we would just ask the management to call him once we were done. To reach the top and get a sight of the Chocolate Hills, we went up a flight of stairs with mini steps that made it a bit hard to go up and tiring. And even though I have a groupmate who happen to be preggy, she didn't hesitate to walk up to the stairs too, just to view the beauty of Chocolate Hills.

what do you think? so many chocolates like "Kisses"..hehehehe

on the other side....

Once you reached the top, this is the breath-taking view of the Chocolate Hills. There were a lot of tourists at that time so we had a hard time taking our pictures without anyone on the background, heheheheh. Also, there was a booth which handled all souvenir pictures, you can have a shot flying on top of the hills, touching a hill with your finger or whatever funny pose you like to do. Their prices were reasonable and you can even have it printed on shirts.

Group Pic....should not be missed!!!!hehehehe

Some Informations:

The world-renowned cone-shaped Chocolate Hills is Nature's expression of beauty, mystery and romance. Spread over the municipalities of Carmen, Sagbayan and Batuan, the Chocolate Hills is the province's signature attraction. It consists of approximately 1,268 hay cock hills with heights ranging from 40 to 120 meters. Formed centuries ago by tidal movements, the hills are considered as a National Geologic Movement. During the summers, the dome-shaped grass covered limestone hills dry up and turn brown, transforming the area into seemingly endless rows of chocolate "kisses" Two of the highest hills have been developed and provided with facilities such as a restaurant, hostel and view deck.

I think this is a wishing well...hehehehe
Chocolate Hills dot the plains of Carmen, Batuan and Sagbayan. There are at least 1,776 uniform hills that leave visitors no wonder how they came to be. One could view and even count the hills its 210 feet above the ground view deck, Climbing the 214 steps of the view deck to the top is a rewarding exercise. Chocolate Hills is also cited as a Geological Movement of the country and is also known as the Eight Wonder of the World.
