Bohol Day Tour: Chocolate Hills

The major part of the Bohol Day Tour Package, Chocolate Hills. This is the most famous tourist destination in Bohol. Located in Carmen, Bohol, Chocolate Hills belongs to the Natural Wonders of the World. 

We went to the Chocolate Hills Complex for a best view of the Chocolate Hills. We needed to climb up a 200+ steps viewing deck and enjoy a 360 degrees view. The complex is located in Buenos Aires, Carmen Bohol. It has a restaurant, the viewing deck and Virgin Mary Grotto.

Chocolate Hills is composed of  1,247 chocolate-like hills. This is called Chocolate Hills because its color turns brown during summer season, looking like a Chocolate Hershey's Kisses. 

In one myth, the Chocolate Hills is believed that it has existed because two giants were throwing dirt balls as they fight each other and the rains transformed it into cone-shape hills. Second myth is that it is a giant sobbing tears fell into the ground creating the hills. But originally, the Chocolate Hills used to undersea and it has drained away, that also explains why the hills made of limestone. 

And, Chocolate Hills is another wonderful creation indeed!
