The two days we spent at the Tsingy, were some of the most incredible and taxing days we spent in Madagascar. Just viewing the limestone spires is awe-inspiring. Actually being able to climb and hike among them was one of the highlights of our vacation....More

Tsingy is a bit remote, but I'm very glad we went there. It was a great end to a three-week trip, and while you might fit it into a two-week trip, if you have less than two weeks you might skip it just because it...More

To climb the route of Tsingy is not easy, and even difficult for people who are afraid of height. The route is actually not very long, but most parts are vertically going up and down. It is an interesting experience for people who never did...More

Gray jagged rocks shaped like crowns scratch the sky. Rocks balance precariously on each other. Wearing a harness and headlamp, we squeezed and crawled through a cave, then climbed to the top of the tsingy. Using a via ferrata route, we used carabiners to secure...More

Grand Tsingy (4 hour) is a difficult climb up rock walls and through one-meter high cave passages. Very hot (44c) during mid-day October. Drenched in sweat.

Very beautiful area, the 4h circuit was very nice with great view points. The trail was fun to do and our guide was very good. We saw white and brown lemurs. Overall, great place but such a long drive to get there.

We flew by small aircraft into the nearest landing strip then it was almost an hour drive over unpaved, dirt roads to get to the village at the entrance to the Tsingy. If you didn't fly in we have no idea how long it would...More

Tsingy de Bemaraha is the one most peculiar landscape in Madagascar! You feel like a termite in a termite nest as you walk through the peculiar rock formations of the Grand Tsingy. Sometimes you have to physically climb, other times you have to crawl in...More

It's too difficult to explain your feelings and impressions in Tsingy! All pictures you can find in internet don't show you how amazing this place! Usually you see on pics just top of these sharp stones, and of course it's interesting. But, actually, your visit...More

Once you mean Gorge excursion by pirogue you can buy it at the office close to Small Tsingi. Tip - skip the small Tsingi. Take Big in the morning and pirogue after lunch - so you'll save one day

That's the end of dry season so... check out other reviews. Better be vaccinated against malaria. Once you're a little bit fat - some places in Tsingi won't be reachable for you. You may take Big Tsingi in the morning and... More
