The  Bemaraha National Park  is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tsingy of Bemaraha is without doubt one of the most prestigious protected areas in Madagascar. The massif limestone is an ancient coral reef, like the Tsingy de l’Ankarana. At Bemaraha, erosion has created deep vertical cliffs, filled with faults and crevices, which form a complex labyrinth of caves. At the end of the gorge of Manambolo, by foot, we get in a fairy labyrinth of grottoes, crevices, gorges in which dominate the sharpened limestone peaks « Tsingy of Bemaraha » (pinnacles). We can easily understand then the origin of its name because it’s impossible to walk on it even tip toeing. This geological paradise offers a surprising diversity of fauna and flora.
