WHAT TO EXPECT AT BILAR MAN MADE FOREST

The Bilar man-made forest composes of mahogany trees that stretch for more than 2 kilometers between the towns of Bilar and Loboc.

When you enter this parallel tunnel of trees, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered another realm. You will also notice the temperature drop drastically as you drive through the man-made forest Bohol because the canopy above almost completely cuts out the sun.

There is a windy road that goes all the way through the man-made forest in Bohol and it acts as an enchanting pathway that cuts through the natural-arched tunnel of large mahogany trees.

Bohol man-made forest is one of the most popular tourist attractions that draw many daily visitors so be prepared to encounter constant traffic on the road that goes through the forest.

The Bohol man-made forest can be combined with a visit to the Tarsier Conservation Sanctuary and a visit to the Chocolate Hills since it’s all on the same road.
