Nothing much to see as it is a normal sight of mahogany tree-lined stretch on your way to Carmen's Chocolate Hills. A good lay-over to snap a picture or two. It could have been lovelier if there would be forest-like wood structures with souvenir and coffee shops to attract more tourist revenues.

On our way to Chocolate Hills we pased Man Made Forest. We were with a motor cycle so had a good chance to stop aside the road. When you enter the forest, the first thing i experienced was the temperature dropping a few degrees. The trees are quite impressive for a Western European, really tall and straight. It would be...

My group took a day tour of Bohol and this was on the way to one of our destinations so we took a 5 minute stop. It is simply a small section of woods made entirely of mahogany. It is nice to see such tall beautiful trees, but the area seems to lack any sign of life. There is no... More

The man made forest of Bohol looks like any ordinary forest. What is worth noting is that it is all mahogany. The problem with a Mahogany forest is that it is dead. There is no life inside the forest.

The Mahogany Forest is on the way to do the Loboc River Cruise. About 1 km of the mahogany Forest that make the way of the 2 sides of the road more interesting to travel. Anyway, they should not counted this as as destination because it is just on the way.

This is such a relaxing place to go for a quick stop over. I am just hoping that they will put a corner where we can sit and just enjoy the place.

We stopped for a few mins while on the way to chocolate hills. Good for picture taking just be careful because this is a highway so lots of vehicles passing by. One of the very very very few attractions in Bohol that don't charge anything.

Absolutely loved this forest and the story behind it. Absolutely DID NOT love the rubbish left behind by over zealous tourists. Walk past the first few metres near the road and you are in a magical world, a photographers delight. Definitely worthy of stopping if you are heading the Chocolate Hills

This is a man made Mahogany Forest. Aside from the beauty (which is the reason why people do a quick stop for a photo ops :) ), planting more trees would definitely help our environment which in return is beneficial to the human race.

This place was so beautiful! It was a shame that there was no proper stopping point. Had to just get out of the car and make sure we didn't get run over while taking photos.Definately must stop and take in all of the natural beauty!
