Tsingy de Bemaraha II: Tsingy tsingy – On tiptoes – Auf Zehenspitzen

After a tropical night that had us soaked in sweat we faced the fact that our car was still standing on the other side of the river with it´s hood wide open. So we got on a pirogue and headed upstream Manombolo for “Petit Tsingy”, which is the southern end of the karst scenery. Tsingy de Bemaraha is a limestone slab that once used to be the ground of the ocean. It got elevated and today it stretches 100 kilometres from Manomobolo River up north as well as a maximum of 30 kilometres from inland westward. Along the bank of the river the limestone is sliced, because erosion is washing away softer types of rock, so the scenery truly resembles the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (Saxon Switzerland) at the Elbe River in eastern Germany. But inside the park weather has formed surreal, razor-sharp limestone spikes, on top of which bizarre Elephant´s Foot Trees, cactuses and even trees are growing. Weiterlesen
