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!

This is a place where man-made trees envelope the road. We found a spot to stop and take picture. Just be careful of yourself. Make sure the road is clear with cars before you do some selfies. Worth the stop.

At first, when we passed by, it is seem to be nothing special at all. It is like passing by in an ordinary place surrounded by tall trees. But then when we make our stop, that is the time that I appreciate the place. It is also a plus factor that our tour guide/driver knows the history of it. I... More

This is a man made forest about 2km of mahogany trees. Though it is not very significant in terms of scenery but it is a reminder how important to have greens in an island. The weather in the forest is cool compared to the outside. Try to buy some souvenirs there to support the locals.

it was a beautiful sight and inspiring that a man was able to convince others to think ahead in the 1950s when global warming was yet to be discovered as an international concern -and went to do the work in those days for the benefit of generations to come... something he didn't see in his day -a heroic and selfless...
