Why Tsingy de Bemaraha? If Isalo is exceptional, Tsingy de Bemaraha is “Unbelievable.” It is really hard to understand why this is not in the list of Exceptional ones. The only reason could have been it getting listed as an UNESCO heritage site. While both Isalo and Tsingy de Bemaraha are about landscapes, the two are equally uniquely distinct. Tsingy (literally translates into thorny something which is difficult to walk on) can be seen at many places at Madagascar, but the profusion that is seen at Tsingy de Bemaraha is unparalleled. To add to the challenge, reaching and exploring Tsingy de Bemaraha is an experience of a lifetime. You stand no chance if you suffer from vertigo as the hike needs a literally flat ascend with harness belts. Standing on the swinging bridge at the pinnacle is nothing less than an accomplishment – and achievement that only a few can only dream of 152000 ha … second largest … Manambolo River … stone knives razor sharp sandstone pinnacles
Travel Tricks | Travelling to Tsingy de Bemaraha is a tricky business. Morondava, the nearest city, is a 8-hour drive through dirt and dust with two river crossings on a raft. If you can survive these, then you reach Bekopaka, a small village that has somewhat developed as a base for exploring the Tsingy.
Things to Do | If you have reached Bekopaka, you deserve one round of applause. Hiking, Boat trips, get massaged
