The Chocolate Hills in the Philippines Are Incredible

The Chocolate Hills in the Bohol Island, Philippines, is a group of strangely shaped hills that resemble chocolate truffles, though some argue they look more like female breasts.

Though it’s hard to believe, they were not made by men but are a completely natural and unique landscape.

Despite what their name might suggest, the hills are not made of chocolate, but don’t let that disappoint you. They are still a stunning sight to see, especially during the dry season, when they acquire the authentic chocolate brown color. If you come to see them when it’s wet and rainy, they will look green and not chocolatey at all.

The Chocolate Hills are a protected area that has been a geological monument since 1997. In 2006, they were submitted for consideration for the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but the submission hasn’t been approved yet.
