Bohol Tour - Man made forest & Bamboo hanging bridge

April 13, 2018 Bohol, Philippines

We drove through the mahogany man made forest but didn't stop until we were on our way back because we wanted to get to Chocolate hills first.
Everyone stops here to take a photo! It's stretches for 2km. It provides shade from the sun and heat during summer.
I was quite impressed to see the thick trunks of the trees. I wondered how old the trees are. The trees were thriving here. And I have never seen anything quite like it in the Philippines. Usually it's bamboo or coconut trees. 

I'm glad that this forest is preserved and no one is trying to cut it down.
The stop after that was the bamboo hanging bridge. The entrance fee is 10 per person.
I was intimated to walk the bridge but decided to just go for it. I was holding the hand rails with my dear life. The bridge was shaky and I was so scared that it was going to fall apart. And I will plunge down on the river. 
I took little steps and got scared each time I moved my feet. The bamboo bridge floor was of course uneven so I had to watch my step to make sure I don't get my sandals stuck.
It was absolutely fine! I was worrying too much. After a couple of steps, I was feeling better. But was still hanging on, haha. 
Managed to get a photo.
I was happy to walk the hanging bridge because I got to see Loboc river. I didn't pay for the river cruise so this was the next best thing. And I love the trees surrounding the river on either side. The river is green but I was surprised that it was clean. I didn't see trash on the river and on the banks of it. I am really happy about that. Keep our rivers and oceans clean please.
