Chocolate Hills of Bohol Island, the Philippines

Bohol’s 1700-odd conical Chocolate Hills dot the middle of the island; they range in height but are so regular in shape that they could be mistaken for being human-made. However, according to UNESCO, they are the uplift of coral deposits and a result of rainwater erosion. The chocolate hills only earn their ‘chocolate’ nickname in the dry season when the foliage goes from lush green to brown. with all the most important information in the first paragraph or two. If the less vital details are pushed towards the end of the story, then the potentially destructive impact of draconian copy editing will be minimized.
