In early February, the so-called chocolate hills were very green. A unique phenomenon, best appreciated after you climb over 200 steps to the photo platform. Half an hour is enough there.

This place is definitely a must see, especially when the hills are in peak chocolatly season (Excuse the pun). The viewing platforms was getting reworked at the time as was a bit ugly, but I understand that won’t be a regular thing. The ONLY reason...More

We were lucky; the number of visitors wasn't overwhelming. It is enough to plan 30 minutes for the visit. Not suitable for handicapped people due to approximately 100 stairs leading to the top.

From the sea to the hills, the way is wonderful. Rise terraces, farms, jungle and so ever... this is a very typical way to see a bit more the inside of a Philippine's Island. The view is as beautiful as expected.
