Chocolate Hills Tour (with Panglao extras)

Looking for a unique way to spend the Good friday, I decided to join my friend Lee, his special friend Monica, Monica’s mother and sister in an amazing adventure in the world famous Chocolate Hills and other places along Bohol’s Tourism highway.

Our destinations (in Bohol, Philippines):

  • Chocolate Hills in Carmen
  • Butterfly Garden in Bilar
  • Loboc River and Tarsier in Loboc
  • Prony, the Python in Alburquerque
  • Blood Compact Site in Bool, Tagbilaran City

Other Destinations

  • Dauis Church
  • Hinagdanan Cave in Panglao
  • Dumaluan Beach Resort in Panglao

We rented a van operated by George Noroño for a discounted price (since George is our friend…LOL), and left Tagbilaran at around 8:00 am in the morning. Our first destination is nothing but the Chocolate  Hills. After more than an hour of travel, we arrived in Carmen. We payed an entrance fee of Php 50.00 each at the Chocolate Hills (a little contribution to the community). The pics below will tell how much fun we had.

After an hour at the Chocolate Hills, we headed for  the Butterfly Garden (Simply Butterflies) in Bilar. Read the rest of this entry »

Abatan River

From the highlands of Antequera and Catigbian. Abatan River flows through Balilihan and serves as the boundary separating the towns of Cortes and Maribojoc, before ending up its stretch in Maribojoc Bay. The sides of the river are being occupied by dense nipa forest, the leaves of which are being sewn to bamboo sticks and used as roof covers for local houses and huts. The dense nipa forest also serves as a habitat to crabs and clams among others, whom locals gather for food.

What was once occupied by sand gatherers, the stretch of the river is now cleaned and groomed to be one of the next tourist attractions of the province of Bohol. The river is best suited for kayaking and river cruise, and resto-bars at the side of the river will add more interest to tourists enjoying the place.

Several sources of potable water could be found along the river. Most notable are Sanggabon and Bilibili spring in Malayo Norte, Cortes and Nonok Spring near Loreto.

Abatan River is believed to have its name derived from the bisayan term “abat” (to fetch) or “abatan” (fetching place or area) which refers to a place where fishermen, fish buyers and wives of the fishermen meet.

Rumor has it also that a White Bell or “Lingganayng Ogis” in Bisayan term is resting at the river bed, after it was thrown by locals to end the dispute of where it will be placed. Although it’s just a rumor for now, finding it will be an adventure to tell for anyone interested to uncover the truth behind such rumor.
