We visited twice in the afternoon. We stopped here at 2:30 pm on our way from Morondava Airport to Kirindy and then again on our way back to Morondava. The Avenue is not very long but very picturesque. It takes just 15-20 minutes to walk...More

Yes it can get crowded and busy but it's all worth it. One of the best sight I have witness and amazing opportunity to take photographs. It's a must visit if you are in Mada. Just make sure you go a bit early and take...More

if we consider the difficulty of arriving by car to morondava from antsirabe, perhaps it is not really worth it. Then combine something with the view of the babobabs, like the sea, beautiful in Kimony beach, or the tsingy park. The place is still spectacular,...More

Although attractive at sunset, there are too many people all trying to get the same photos at the same time. Better to go at a slightly different time and view the equivalent a little further north before the main avenue.

One of the most spectacular places we've ever seen! It was hard to get there, how hard it is to reach everything in Madagascar, but it was worth it! A huge avenue surrounded by these huge trees that make you feel really small! Excellent view...More

Even though it is probably Madagascar's most iconic place (and therefore attracts the crowds) this place still holds something very special. It is really incredible to walk this road surrounded by these trees and the crowds don't affect the vibe. I visited it twice and...More

I found these massive trees even more impressive than I had anticipated. Many are around a thousand years old and the sheer bulk of them is astounding. At sunset there are quite a few tourists - to be expected - but additional camera angles can...More

Fascinating site, becoming more and more professional, now with solar energy. Nice cafe where you can sit and enjoy the sundowner

We visited here with all the tourists at sunset. Beautiful of course. But we had an equally amazing time at near noon when we were passing through. Don't think you can only come at sunrise/sunset. It's beautiful all day.

It did get quite buggy as and after the sun went down. I do not recall as many in the morning when we returned for sunrise. Definitely bring bug repellent -- and enjoy! The trees are just spectacular!

I went with Adventure Associates from Australia. I cannot tell you how much costs to go to the Avenue, because I paid the whole 3 weeks tour as a package. Excellent operator, and you need local expertise very much.
