We took a break from the sandy beaches of Alona beach in Bohol and hopped in a car and headed to the famous Chocolate Hills. Now part of the UNESCO heritage list, these hills (1,260 of them!) spread over the municipalities of Carmen, Sagbayan and Batuan in Bohol. When we got there, we had to climb up over 200 steps to get to the view point. Let me tell ya, it was HUMID! I’ve never felt that kind of humidity in my life. Sweat was building up with every step I made. But by the time we got all the way up, it was worth all the sweat.
The Chocolate Hills are limestone formations in the shape of chocolate Hershey Kisses. For most of the year, they are covered in greenery but in the dryer summer months, the grass dries up and turn chocolate brown. It’s really an amazing site, I’ve never seen anything like it.
