Went on Bohol tour in July 2011. I and wife stopped at chocolate hills for an hour. It was very scenic. Climbed the hill to the top to get great views and pictures!

We went there 2 weeks ago. It was a long drive but it worth. The view was breathtaking. We visited at about 1PM but u should visit at about 3 PM for taking better photos

Arriving in Bohol itself is an experience combined with the scenic view on the drive to the village of Carmen. Lots of nature, in one tourist attraction. Our drive had great panoramic views of the rain in the mountains. As we approached Chocolate Hills, and it's altitude, one can smell the fresh air. Going to the top of the mountain... More

Loved the scenic panorama, but this great view point has very narrow steps and a limited space at the top. We visited on a rainy day, so only had to wait a few minutes to get photos and enjoy the view. Friends tell me they have had to queue for ages for the privilege. This is a wonderful landmark, but...

We made this the first stop of our day as it gets more crowded later on , accdg to our guide. Little hills as far as the eye could see. Similar shape and size. So beautiful and unusual. We climbed up to the viewpoint. We could see the damage left by the quake but the majority of the vantage point... More

The best time to see the Chocolate Hills (Carmen town, Bohol) is after the rainy season has begun. The rains give the hills a resplendent green cover as opposed to the summer months when the hills are arid, drab and sometimes just plain brown. The topmost part of the view deck (it's 200+ steps going up) was damaged by the... More

As one of the national monuments of the Philippines there is a lot of potential for this viewing area to be a lot better. There has been very little done to repair some earthquake damage, our driver cited lack of budget. It has been 4 years since I last visited and the place is the same except for the earthquake...
