The only sad thing about Isalo is that it was once surrounded by lush forrest ALL of which has been cut. There is barely a tree left. However, this further emphasizes the dramatic picture of rock formations which, guides will tell you, remind of a...More

This 315-square-mile park features sandstone formations, canyons, buttes and occasional water features, such as a waterfall and pools. As I walked along an unshaded trail under the blazing sun, I felt as if I were back hiking in the American Southwest. But the unusual plants...More

We did the long walk, which gives great views and a lot of varied landscapes, rocks, dry plains and wet river banks with pools and waterfalls. It should not be too difficult if you are reasonably fit.
