Through mountains, in the South East of Diego-Suarez, the Red Tsingy, result of the erosion by the rainwater of a thick coat of laterite, reserves you the other secrets of the nature.
Leaving Diego towards the South, we will take the RN6 ( National Road 6 ) along 45kms of winding road through rice plantations and farming fields to the village of Sahafary, then into a side road bordered with Eucalyptus trees (a reforestation project) up to a viewpoint dominating the Indian Ocean, the plain of Irodo, the reserve of Analamera and Lavakas.
The visit continues through an overhanging plateau of mountain track bordered with palm trees, reaching a peak landscape, a typical structure formed with the combination of bush fires, erosion and water infiltration.
The Red Tsingy, composed of sandstone, lime and marl, offer their beautiful ephemeral draperies inside the only sedimentary basin of Madagascar
Practical advice for the excursion: long trousers, tee-shirt with sleeves, sun lotion, sun glasses, cap, trainers, spare shoes and k-way
