Ascending the Tsingy de Bemaraha

Getting to Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park isn’t easy, but those who make the trek are handsomely rewarded. While even amateur climbers can now safely make it to the top of the tsingy, getting to the park is no easy feat. The national park is accessible by dirt road, which becomes an unnavigable quagmire for six months of the year during the rainy season, or an elaborate expedition round trip by the Manambolo River or the Tsiribihina River.

Gazing up at the jagged pinnacles that will surrounded you, you could see why the locals had labelled them as tsingy. Meaning the 'place where one cannot walk' in Malagasy, the tsingy have been shaped by time and the elements into a spiky forest wonderland. Not only are the limestone karst towers razor-sharp, but the thought of trying to climb them is terrifyingly daunting. Then again, nothing comes easy when it involves one of the world's most difficult-to-reach Unesco World Heritage sites: Madagascar's Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park.

ENJOY THIS... an exhilarating attraction:

The jagged pinnacles were largely inaccessible until the 1990s, when French explorer and speleologist Jean-Claude Dobrilla founded the Antsika Association (antsika meaning 'together' in Malagasy), an organization designed to help the Malagasy preserve and profit from their natural resources. With help from locals, Antsika Association members set up a comprehensive set of aerial suspension bridges, steel cables, pegs and ladders ‒ all of which can be traversed safely using climbing harnesses - and trained local guides in climbing, equipment maintenance and safety skills. Some years after the Antsika Association's founding, Tsingy de Bemaraha has become one of the country's most exhilarating attractions.

Ascending the tsingy it is an exciting and nerve-wracking climb through narrow gullies and rocky crevices. At the start of the ascent, you will find yourself flat on you belly, crawling through caves and sliding through tight passages. Your guide will lead the way, pointing out the best hand and footholds as we neared the top of the tsingy.

Three hours later, we will summit the peaks, and your guide will clip you tether directly onto a bridge, which swayed perilously to and for above the serrated rocks.

The views from the suspension bridges and platforms stretch for kilometers across the arid plateau, which appears caged behind the forest of limestone in the foreground. It will be an arduous journey to Tsingy de Bemaraha - but like anything that takes time, it will be well worth the effort.
