Tsingy Stone Forest

Isolated Spiky Wonderland

The grand landscape of Madagascar is home to the world’s largest stone forest, with jagged limestone pinnacles over exceptional greenery and flora.

The Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, located in Melaky Region, northwest Madagascar centers on two geological formations: the Great Tsingy and the Little Tsingy. Together with the adjacent Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Park is home to ‘Tsingys’, which are towering limestone rock formations up to 100 metres (328 feet). These have been shaped and formed by monsoon rains, winds and floods, carving off the jagged crags over time, forming caves and deep canyons below the rocky surface.

Despite Tsingy Stone Forest barren appearance, it is home to a large number of endemic species of plants and animals, including, 11 types of lemur, and over 100 bird species. The 45 reptiles and amphibians which are found here are all endemic.

Madagascar’s Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, is only opened during the dry season from April to November. There are three campsites and two main hiking tracks – a three hour short one and a more challenging track with fixed rope routes, bridges and caves.
