A must see place, you can also see places for fetishes and voodoo. Wonderful for hiking.. Don't forget to hire a tour guide.
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.

51 km away. Taxi cost 25.000 cfr but i guess cheaper if you can bargin in french. 45 minutes walk with french guide athte site. 1000 cfa entrance fee. Is on the same route as hippo lake.
