 Everyone loves chocolate. This sweet temptation cocoa is a favorite of all. And as the hotel is chocolate, there are also chocolate hills. Now will you tell them. This interesting geological formation is located in the Philippines on the island of Bohol. This is considered one of the most visited places in the Philippines. The hills are symmetrical and cone-shaped. Flora with chocolate-brown hills covered in dry period. Similarity with chocolate comes from the fact that seen from above resemble chocolates or truffles. But that's not all. The uniqueness continues. Opinions their formation to the present day are not uniform. One of the main versions for the emergence of the chocolate hills is that under the influence of rain, erosion at the rise of coral deposits have formed hills.

Another allegation is that they were covered by the sea some time ago, but when they were displaced layers are built up more. The third version on how descended the hills that are the remnants of volcanic activity. According to some it is a human case. But some such theory unlikely because it requires more forces. There are also legends in this regard. First to tell you is about two giants who waged war. They fought with sand and stones. But fighting continued long and Giants left without power drop. Then they turned their backs feud and became friends. After they left but piles of stones. Thus emerged and chocolate hills.

The second legend says that there was a strong and huge young creature that with all my heart loved a girl - a simple man. When the girl died, and death caused so much pain in the being that his tears withered and in their place appeared chocolate hills.
