The province of Bohol is full of natural wonders and attractions. One of them is the million-year-old Chocolate Hills. The Chocolate Hills are an extraordinary geological formation that can be found and scattered in the towns of Carmen, Sagbayan, and Batuan in Bohol. The hills form a rolling terrain shaped like a conical heap of hay in a field. Numbering between 1,268 and 1,776 separate mounds, the dome-shaped hills are almost symmetrical which are primarily made up of grass-covered limestone.
These earthly phenomenon vary in height from 30-50 meters (98-164ft) in elevation where the largest is found to be 120 meters (390ft) tall. These distinct grass-covered mounds dry up during the summer season leaving the tawny color giving the hills their name. They turn lush during rainy days and this cycle happens in a span of a year.
The hills are spread in a vast area covering about 50 square kilometers (20 square miles) where there is elevated viewing platform provided to give you an awesome view of the Chocolate Hills.
