Bohol, along with the other land forms forming before mankind came to existence, was secretly coming out of its shell more than a hundred million years ago.
The formation of this beautiful island started during the Cretaceous Period, which dated back to 65-140 million years ago. In the earliest times, the whole island of Bohol was buried underwater except for some parts such as Mt. Malibalibod and terrains of Alicia, which were the only evident land during that time. Overtime, the movement of Mother Earth continued to cause uplifting of the remaining land mass; the first parts to emerge was the eastern part of Bohol which consisted of Alicia, Anda, and Mabini and an interior part of Carmen. Hundreds of years more, the rest of the island embraced the air and the sky, and has now become what we see today as the captivating Bohol.
