The past few days I've been motoring around the central part of Bohol island and scouting good angles on the famous Chocolate Hill formation. Oddly enough, the best location I found was at the built-up overlook about 4km south of the town of Carmen. A road, resort and set of stairs leads you to the 'summit' of one of the Chocolate Hills. These odd ice-cream-cone-like formations are about 100m tall round piles of grass which are eroded limestone sedimentary rock. Why they eroded in this amazing pattern, I do not know. But here's my visual impression from a sunset and sunrise in the Chocolate hills. Plus, as a bonus, I've thrown in a image of the 'Man-Made Forest' which is on the road up Carmen. It is a beautiful stand of trees after the town of Loboc and before Carmen.
