The guide told us about how this forest was "made" 40yrs ago. it was meant to ease the flood and erosion that caused by the rain. Great thought! However, it's a bit creepy when we drove pass at night..

It's a part of nature on your way to Chokolat hills . If you go there with tour, your Van will be stopped and you will have about 10 minutes to have pictures. But riding throug the forest is very impressive too.

Man made forest is a nice place to pass through when in Bohol. There were vendors selling cheaper than the mall tshirts, which was great for budget conscious people like me. There's not much traffic in this area of Bohol when we went so we...More
