One of the most popular wonders of the Phillipines is the 1,268
Chocolate Hills of the island province of Bohol.
These hills have heights of 40 to 120 meters. Looking like a tabletop of chocolate kisses during summer, these dome-shape
elevations turn green during the rainy season. It is best to explore the area using a bicycle.

Located at the heart of the island province of Bohol specifically in the municipalities of Sagbayan, Batuan and Carmen, the area is accessible
from all sides of province. Coming from Tagbilaran City which has a domestic airport and seaport, the chocolate hills can be reached via Bohol's
southern Coastal Road up to the town of Loay and then the central road along the Loboc River.
The government has declared the Chocolate Hills as one of the flagship tourist destinations. A viewing complex has been built
in Carmen Town, around 55 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. A new complex at Sagbayan town provides an unobstructed view of the geologic wonder
that is the Chocolate Hills.
