Tarsier is a cute, tiny animal that lives in Bohol.
Apparently, it’s the oldest known mammal, called as the midget monkey of the Philippines.
Tarsier measures about 85 to 160 mm and its tail is longer than its body.
I love mint chocolate, so I had to write you this post. 🙂
Chocolate Hills in Bohol are “brown” during the dry season, other times they’re rather greenish, so they are “mint chocolate hills”. 😀 Doesn’t it sound delicious? 😉
The beautiful hills you see in today’s picture have a sweet name “Chocolate Hills”.
Unfortunately, they aren’t made of chocolate. 😉
They’re covered by grass that turns brown in dry season, that’s why people called them as Chocolate Hills.
There are almost 1300 hills in Bohol! Their height ranges from 40 to 120 meters.
Bohol is a beautiful island.
Well, the Philippines have plenty of amazing islands, but Bohol is my favorite.
Bohol has a bit of everything, great nature, i.e, lovely beaches, hills (Chocolate Hills!), animals (tarsier).
Don’t miss it, while visiting the Philippines.
I think, Bohol is mostly known from Chocolate Hills; next days, I’ll tell you more about them. 🙂
If you ask me, what’s my favorite place in the Philippines, the answer is very easy – it’s Bohol Island.
It’s such a lovely place! I hope you’ll understand my point of view, after seeing (next days) some of my pictures from Bohol.
When I was going to rice terraces in Banaue, I had “unexpected attractions”. People were building a road, and using dynamite to destroy some rocks. I have to say, it was first time in my life, seeing something like that (today’s photo). It was interesting to observe it, but also a bit scary while hearing the explosions…
When you want to visit Banaue, be aware, that you may have to walk a bit (or a bit more). I guess, it depends on the weather conditions, e.g., strong rains or landslides can make the path more complicated. When I was there, the road was under construction, so our walk was even longer than usual.
