Our planet is home to many wonderful and unique places. One of them is located in Bohol, Philippines, and is often called the “Eighth Wonder of the World”. The Chocolate Hills are a famous tourist attraction with amazing scenery that attracts people from all over the world.
The amazing view is not the only thing that makes the Chocolate Hills special. The place got its name due to the color it gets during the dry season. The green grass dries up and the hills turn chocolatey brown — over thousand of them. The hills vary in size, but looked from afar, they form a regular pattern that’s unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.
Filipinos have many myths and legends about this place. Its origin story is unknown, but according to legends, the hills are here because two feuding giants threw rocks and sand at each other. The geologists, however, believe that the hills appeared due to the weathering of marine limestone.
