Discover Andringitra

An exciting hike through Andringitra granitic massif will be at the heart of this trip.

Andringitra is a world apart, a magical village that is the beauty of the South. We will see the foothills of the mountain flooded with terraces, crops linking the green intensity of the primary forest and the gray austerity of granite peaks.

On this side, the mountains look like the reliefs of the Alps, only the vegetation differs. Thus, we will see Pic Boby, the second summit of Madagascar with its 2,658 m; the great cliffs of Tsaranoro and Anja with green valleys or hiding small villages far from everything.
