Chocolate Hills - one of the Philippines' most popular tourist attractions

Baku, July 4, AZERTAC

The Chocolate Hills are a group of unusually shaped hills located in the middle of the island of Bohol in Philippines. This extraordinary landscape is unique to this small island.

It is unknown how many chocolate hills there are. It is known that at the bare minimum there are 1268 hills but some estimates put this number as high as 1776.

The hills are not huge; the highest one barely reaches 120 meters in height. The conical Chocolate hills are scattered within a fifty square kilometer area.

Mystery still surrounds how the Chocolate Hills were formed. One of the more popular local legends is that long ago, two giants fought for days, hurling earth and stones at one another, until they fell exhausted, friends once more, into each other`s arms.
