ANDRINGITRA & BOBY PEAK – 9 DAYS

The heart of this trip is an itinerant hike in the granite massif of Andringitra. It is a world apart, a world unknown and little traveled, which in no way corresponds to what we can imagine. Here, the foothills of the mountain are flooded with terraces, cultures combining the green intensity of primary forest and the gray austerity of granite peaks. Aesthetically, the mountains are very close to alpine landforms, only the vegetation differs. The large cliffs of Tsaranoro and Anja dominate the green valleys where small villages hide themselves away from everything. From the summits, the view is panoramic and embraces a vast territory. This land of trekking will delight all the unconditional of beautiful mountain roaming, spotted with magical encounters.
