In the morning departure with the 4WD from Bekopaka to join the starting point of ”Grands Tsingy” ( 17 kms of bumpy road , it will take from 1 to 2 hours driving according the season ). The trip is called ”Andamozavakay”, it takes around 4 hours It is not a trek but a slow and observation walk. This doesn’t requiere a particular physical condition, but it is not good for those subject to vertigo or claustrophobia. During the hike we will discover: secondary forest, caves (bring a headlamp) of the diaclases, panoramic views of this unique massif in the world. We cross a suspension bridge. The set is perfectly safe and very well laid out by the National Park that provides safety harnesses. If we’re not too tired we can continue the ride by a recent circuit called Broadway circuit 30 minutes to 1 hour through subterranean galleries.
