Peppermint island’s most famous attraction is the alluring sounding chocolate mountain. Due to the complex and coincidental geological changes here, 1,268 cone-shaped mountains formed in the middle of peppermint mountain long ago. These mountains are 40 to 120 meters high. Chocolate hill is made up of limestone, but there is no cave system or underground passage common in limestone areas. The hills lay close together like haystacks in a field. Some have domes, others are tapered. They are covered with wild grass and are green in color during the rainy season. Every summer, the haystacks dry up and brown like rows of chocolate on the ground, hence the mouth-watering name chocolate mountain.
There are many legends about chocolate mountain, the most touching of which is the story of giant arago. Legend has it that alogo the giant fell in love with alaya, the most beautiful girl in the area. When alaya was bathing in the river before her marriage, arogo couldn’t resist snatching her home. Unfortunately, alaya died of a heart attack because she was afraid of what alogo looked like. The giant wept and died, and his tears turned into chocolate mountain. Another legend is also interesting. There were two giants who fought for days and threw stones at each other. When they were finally exhausted, they made up and left the island, leaving behind a chaotic scene of fighting.
