Nope, this is not a great big chocolate pudding to enjoy in a four-star hotel in Makati. The Chocolate Hills are a natural group of hills that look like huge chocolate puddings in Bohol.
There have been many articles about the place and the only way to really know about this place is to go there.
Bill Fisklis from our sister site Australi.ph has been there with his family. Here is a short article from Bill.
The Chocolate Hills in Bohol are considered one of Philippine’s natural. They look like giant mole hills, or as some say, women’s breasts, and remind us of the hills in a small child’s drawing. Most people who first see pictures of this landscape can hardly believe that these hills are not a man-made artifact.
Legend has it that the hills came into existence when two giants threw stones and sand at each other in a fight that lasted for days. When they were finally exhausted, they made friends and left the island, but left behind the mess they made. For the more romantically inclined is the tale of Arogo, a young and very strong giant who fell in love with an ordinary mortal girl called Aloya. After she died, the giant Arogo cried bitterly. His tears then turned into hills, as a lasting proof of his grief.
Numerous waterfalls and caves are scattered across the island, including Mag-Aso Falls in Antequera. Mag-Aso means smoke in the native tongue. The water is cool and often creates a mist in humid mornings which can hide the falls.
How to get there
Bohol is located in the central Philippines, and can be conveniently reached by air and boat. If you come via Manila, you’ll probably want to take a connecting flight to Tagbilaran, which takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes., if you come via Cebu, you can take the one and a half hour trip with a fast boat to Tagbilaran.

hocolate Hills are a geological formation in the Bohol province of the Philippines. There are at least 1,260 hills, but there may be as many as 1,776 hills spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometres (20 sq mi)] They are covered in green grass that turns brown (like chocolate) during the dry season, hence the name.
The Chocolate Hills are a famous tourist attraction of Bohol. They are featured in the provincial flag and seal to symbolize the abundance of natural attractions in the province. They are in the Philippine Tourism Authority’s list of tourist destinations in the Philippines. Have been declared the country’s third National Geological Monument and proposed for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
