The hills of Bohol province in the Philippines has nothing to do with chocolate, but still they are called the Chocolate hills. Disappointing, but true. We know you would all like to visit a chocolate heaven.

These hills got the name because during the summer times, the green grass turns into a chocolate brown color. The largest hill rises almost 400 feet, but they tend to be from 100 to 160 feet high.

Some say that the hills were named after the Hershey confection known as Chocolate Kisses, but the hills have probably been there a lot longer than the confection. There are a lot of myths connected to this place.

One beautiful story says that a giant fell in love with a mortal girl, and the day she died he couldn’t stop crying. When his tears dried the Chocolate Hills were made.

Today the hills are a major tourist attraction. It’s so popular that the national government has chosen the Chocolate Hills as one of its “flagship tourist destinations”. Speaking of beautiful but weird nature, take a look at this white and undiscovered desert in Egypt.
