The guide will realize the “saotra” (request to the ancestors) for the good progress of the hike, and then one will enter on the heart of the primary forest. We will then pass the third guard post to reach the first summit and the stele of the King. To reach the second summit which is 30 minutes from the first, we will cross the rainforest to then go up a line of ridges that offer a splendid view. On one side is the humid forest of the east of the country Tanala, and on the other the territory of the Commune with in the background the Andringitra massif. We will finally begin the descent through the forest for 2 hours, to reach the rice fields, the eucalyptus forests. Arrival in the village of Ambalahazo, meeting with our 2nd host family. Ten minutes away is a lake where an association of women from the village develops craft activities that we will visit.

To finish the stay, return to Ambohimahamasina the chief town place. After lunch, back to Ambalavao. In Ambalavao, visit of the artisanal paper mill Antemoro. The process, which turns into vegetable paper from the mulberry bark Avoha was introduced in Madagascar in the 15th century by the Arabs and the Malagasy still use the exact same technique in this small workshop of Ambalavao. Possibility to visit the Anja Reserve, a fair park founded by the association of four small villages (located +/- 10 km from Ambalavao) where you can see lemurs and chameleons.
