Ideally, we leave early for the Great Tsingy, the road is 15km long, about an hour with a 4×4.There are two circuits you can choose from,

– Le circuit RANOTSARA: 3 hours inside the great Tsingy. Lunch on the run.

– Le circuit ANDAMOZAVAKA: About 4 hours inside the Great Tsingy. We recommend this circuit but its intensity requires a good shape.

For both of these options, you’ll need gear, and a forehead lamp that we will provide. In the core of the Tsingy of Bemahaea, you’ll find two breath taking landscape sites before reaching the cathedral.

The site was totally equipped respecting the environnement, for example with an amazing rope bridge suspended high above the Tsingys, tracks that lead to caverns, of stalagmites and stalactites.
