Vote for Chocolate Hills

I was bored and I decided to surf over the internet and guess what I found? Most people called it "The Pregnant Woman." The Chocolate Hills located in Bohol, Philippines is now one of the nominees for New 7 Wonders of Nature. The Chocolate Hills are probably Bohol's most famous tourist attraction. They look like giant mole hills, or as some say, women's breasts, and remind us of the hills in a small child's drawing. Most people who first see pictures of this landscape can hardly believe that these hills are not a man-made artifact. The chocolate hills consist of are no less than 1268 hills (some claim this to be the exact number). They are very uniform in shape and mostly between 30 and 50 meters high. They are covered with grass, which, at the end of the dry season, turns chocolate brown. From this color, the hills derive their name. At other times, the hills are green, and the association may be a bit difficult to make.


My family and I are planning to visit The Chocolate Hills when we go home early next year. If you would like to cast your votes for The Chocolate Hills just cast your votes by simply visiting www.new7wonders.com. The Chocolate Hills just after the summer, when they have their characteristic brown color.
