Did You Know?

Chocolate Hills named "Chocolate" because of it is grass covered mound shape hills that, on every dry season they turned brown like a chocolate. This is were it derive it's name.

There are plenty of legends have been told on how they are formed, one is the "Battle of the Giants" which there are two giants whom hate each other that they can't stop fighting, they throw rocks, boulder, sands and etc. to each other that last for days. So this one of the legends.

But for most of the people believe or may I say like the most, is the Romatic Legend "Arogo & Aloya". Arogo is a powerful and handsome giant that fell inlove with a mortal girl named "Aloya". They have been very sweet and good to each other but Aloya knows she is just mortal and she knew the time would come that she will be no longer with Arogo. That time come and Arogo was in deep pain, sorrow and misery that he cannot stop crying. Then on that day his tears turned into hills that believed to be the legend of Chocolate Hills.

So as I said there are plenty legends so let just stop from there. =)

As for the scientific explanation, this hills are made by heavy rainfall that comes to a dissolution of limestones and a subaerial erosion by rivers and streams. That had been uplifted the above sea level and fractured by tectonic processes. This has been called the "Conical Karst Topography".

And still more geologists are doing research and examination on how the hills formed.
