Bohol Countryside Tour- Part 3

Simply Butterflies Conservation Center- This is the first butterfly livelihood breeding and conservation program in Bohol. A tour guide was assigned to us and he showed us this framed preserved butterflies. He explained the life cycle of a butterfy which consists of 4 stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult butterfly. There is an area where you can interact with the butterflies.





narrow and steep entrance to Hinagdanan Cave




Hinagdanan cave is a natural underground cave made of limestones.




There's a lagoon inside where people can take a dip.



Entrance to Chocolate Hills





Chocolate Hills- the most popular tourist attraction in Bohol.




There are 4 legends explaining the formation of Chocolate Hills. One tells the story of two feuding giants who hurled rocks, boulders, and sand at each other. The fighting lasted for days, and exhausted the two giants. In their exhaustion, they forgot about their feud and became friends, but when they left they forgot to clean up the mess they had made during their battle, hence the Chocolate Hills.






Tarsier Sanctuary





Tarsiers are small animals with enormous eyes; each eyeball is approximately 16 mm in diameter and is as large as their entire brain. They are so cute!



I bought souvenirs for my nieces.



My niece Ykaie specially liked the tarsier arm band!
