Cool air

Entering the forest on the back of a motorcycle, I was immediately struck by the change in air temperature. It is several degrees cooler inside the forest, and the leaves create... read more

It is a short part of the road on the way to chocolate hills with different trees along the road. Nothing spectacular, but really nice to see. Again, i would recommend to rent a motorbike, so you can drive back and forth as many times as you like, drive slowly, take as many pictures as you like, and fully enjoy... More

Passed by this place on the way to Bohol Chocolate Hills. Very cool and refreshing, trees everywhere providing the place with fresh air and oxygen. Tall trees provide shade so you can rest at the side of the road and inhale the cool fresh air.

At first you are not even aware that this forest is coming up and then before you know it you are surrounded by these massive trees. The story behind how they got there is worth researching. This was an interesting side trip.

Entering the forest on the back of a motorcycle, I was immediately struck by the change in air temperature. It is several degrees cooler inside the forest, and the leaves create a canopy ceiling on the highway so that you are in shade for the entire 2 Km. The trees are very beautiful-- so tall! There is no other vegitation,... More

Passed the man made forest on my way to Chocolate hills, it really is breathtaking driving through. The road was quiet enough to take some stunning pictures too.

If this is your only destination, save the gas and the environment. However if you are going to chocolate hills anyway you can take the road through this forest. It is basically trees forming a roof over you and not more. Respect the nature and pick up your trash.

Well you can't miss it! It is a long stretch of road lined with mahogany trees planted by the forefathers of the locals (thus its being man-made). It is quite majestic to see. However, since the road is literally in the middle of the forest, finding some peace may be a challenge, with vans and trucks passing by. I think... More

My daughter had this on her list of things to do before she visited us for the Christmas Holidays. I saw photos on the internet and was intrigued as, it's supposedly man-made. However, on the way back from the Tarsier Exhibit, we got to drive through the Mahogany Forest, where many tourists got out of their vehicles to have photos... More

The picture would describe it as an ordinary forest to visit, but the moment I saw it, I just fell in love with it. The trees are hugging me and enveloping me in vastness and I felt a calm happiness inside. I felt like I was in another cold country. I begged to stop 2x for a good picture. When... More
