Bohol Island    

Bohol Island

Carmen, Philippines

These rolling hills, sprouting like giant moguls throughout the central towns and countryside of Bohol Island, were declared the third National Geological Monument of the Philippines. They’re made of grass-covered limestone, but local legend says that they were formed when 2 feuding giants hurled rocks and boulders at each other during a violent brawl. Their mossy green turns a cocoa brown in the dry season, hence the name, and tourists visit them at sunrise for the otherworldly views.
