The area of Andringitra is a real Paradise for people who likes to hike, walk and climb.
On the background of the village there is the imposing wall of Tsaranoro also called the "Yosemite of Africa".

There is so little I know about Madagascar. I am really happy that you post photos from there. A picture in the true spirit of TE.

They have houses floating in the air, in Madagascar? :) That's the first time I see that! Very very strange. It seems there is an earthquake and that the stones are rolling down the slope. Although I guess it is simply some vegetables out to dry? The colors are lovely but the scene is really intriguing. Please, can you tell more about that?

Nice composition. Interesting to combine the local rural architecture and landscapes. Interesting look low.

bellissima composizone e PoV con questi tuberi (?) in pirmissimo piano che sembrano strane palline e contribuiscono a dare a queste casette l'aspetto di un villaggio da fiaba.

Stupenda immagine, interessante paesaggio di montagna con bei colori e questo starno pavimento, ma cosa sono patate, tuberi ad essicare ?

Un POV au ras du sol original pour ce bel endroit de Madagascar. Les maisons qui penchent font quand même un peu bizarre.
