Wonderful place. I felt like I am on Mars. Must visit. About 2hours drive from Diego-Suarez city, and about 30mins off road. Entrance fee is 10,000 Ar. Don’t need guide.

The red tsingy is unique and interesting. It is similar looking to that of the grey tsingy, but this is far mor fragile. It is also red and probably will be washed away in time.

I rented a motorbike in Diego and set off for the day. The road is truly appalling, in fact it’s not really a road, it’s a track. And then the road goes “off road” and becomes a track and that’s even more appalling, mainly sand....More

Amazing "rock" formation has been revealed from erosion. It is beautiful. Add it to your trip, but don't make a special trip out there.

Interesting rock formations which you can't see anywhere else in the world. It is a long road to this place - which isn't that big at all - but we did really like it. I liked especially the view on the canyon
