Chocolate Hills (Carmen) are considered one of the natural wonders of the world. Over 1,247 hills are spread out as far as the eye can see. To many the Chocolate Hills are Bohol, period.
Putting Bohol on the tourist map long before Alona Beach became so popular with domestic and international tourists. The Chocolate Hills have been declared the country’s third National Geological Monument.
Made up of Cone / domed shape limestone mounds covered with grass, the individual hills range in size from 30 to 50 meters in height. Towards the end of the dry season the grass turns to a chocolate brown color, giving rise the their name.
