The Sindou Peaks are a geological formation approximately 50 km from Banfora down a brand new paved road. Our driver called a local guide prior to our arrival and he was waiting for us as we pulled up. The guide led us on a hike...More

Went there on a not-as-bumpy ride as I would have thought, the road is recently sealed and little trafficed. The place is totally otherworldly and you should not, I repeat Not miss it! Bring a picnic and plenty of free space on your memory card.

The Pics were my personal favourite BF sight. A great place to wander and scramble around for fantastic views of these limestone rock formations.

I wouldn't come to Burkina Faso to see them, but if you are in the neighbourhood of Banfora, you should drop by. They are easy to reach and simple to walk around.

Burkina Faso isn't full of natural wonders.. thus it makes Sindou Peak a must visit. To be honest, it's not earth-shattering awesomeness. It's very nice and unusual rock formations but the rocks aren't that big or majestic, and the whole area isn't really that big....More
