A geological formation of approximately 1,300 mound-like hills on Bohol island province. The unusual formation of these karst hills is due to rainfall erosion of the limestone and then the subsequent effects of rivers as these hills rose above the sea-level. During the dry season (typically late November to May) the grass on the hills turns brown, giving them the name “Chocolate Hills”.

The Chocolate Hills are just over one hour by car from Tagbilaran City. While public transportation bound for Carmen will take you to the Chocolate Hills, bus schedules are irregular and so it is best to hire a driver or join a day tour from one of the hotels.
