| CHOCOLATE HILLS |
The Chocolate Hills form a rolling terrain of haycock hills – mounds of a generally conical and almost symmetrical shape. Estimated to be from 1,268 to about 1,776 individual mounds, these cone-shaped or dome-shaped hills are actually made of grass-covered limestone.
These Choco colored hills are located on the island of Bohol in the Philipinnes and was one of my to visit spots when I saw an amazing photo from it. I soon found out that this photo was probably shot with a drone and photoshopped, unfortunately droning was not allowed so I had to stick with my DSLR and didnt come further than this photo. Having said that I know for sure I will come back to Bohol some time soon since the scuba diving here is probably one of the finest, by then I hopefully own a nice underwater housing so I can take some incredible underwater photos.
It was not the best landscape I have seen lately, but nonetheless the experience and the story that leads to the photo makes every trip worth it, and I would still recommend to visit them because you might think the complete opposite. Did you know its an official UNESCO World Heritage site?! I hired an amazing young local guy called Ariel who tried his best to help me find the shot I was looking for. Always great to see the local community trying to help clueless tourist like me. Need to say that Filipino people are superkind and you will probably make a lot of new friends while visiting the Philipinnes.
