Landscape Straight Out of a Fairytale – The Incredible Stone Forest in Madagascar
Forget Narnia, folks! The most incredible landscapes don’t come from the fertile minds of fantasy and sci-fi authors. No, they can be found right here in the real world and one of them is in Madagascar.
Take a closer look at The Bemaraha National Park, situated in the west of Madagascar. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990, it has over 700 kilometers of breathtaking scenery among which the most fascinating one is Tsingy, The Stone Forest, a diverse collection of limestone peeks, humid caves and forest canyons, that look like they are the creation of a fantasy artist.
