Andringitra National Park
See the scenic side of Madagascar with a visit to Andringitra National Park, the longest unbroken chain of rainforest remaining on this huge island off the east coast of Africa. It is one of the most biologically diverse places on Madagascar and is home to over a thousand species of plants, more than a hundred species of birds, and several dozen species of mammals and frogs. In particular it is home to several species of lemur, which are found nowhere else in the world, including the ring-tailed and golden bamboo varieties. The park is subdivided into three ecosystems: low altitude rainforest, mountain forest, and high altitude vegetation. There are plunging waterfalls, breath taking mountain peaks, deep valleys and ridges. Imarivolanitra (formerly Pic Boby), which at 2658 m (8,720 ft) is Madagascar's highest peak, is accessible to fit PlaentHoppers! Take a guided tour of the park and pass through villages and sacred forests where lemurs abound. Hike along steep ascending slopes with panoramic views and cap the day with picnic on a mountaintop. Andringitra is a true gem and not to be missed.
