Beautiful And Hunting Stone Forest in Madagascar

| August 14, 2012

Beautiful And Hunting Stone Forest in Madagascar | We have heard about forest, but have you wonder about the stone forest?. This is a extraordinary forest. Enclosed by

752square kms of incredibly scenery, the Bemaraha National Park, situated in the west of Madagascar, was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990, and is home to the truly amazing stone forest known as the Tsingy.

From the Malagasy word “mitsingitsignia”, which means ‘to walk on tiptoe’, the term has been accepted in common language to denote the exceptional topography of eroded limestone, which may exist in other parts of the world, but nowhere as tall, slender and extensive as the spires here. An extraordinary world of forest canyons, humid caves and unique fauna and flora thriving in close proximity to one another.

Because of local conditions, the erosion is patterned vertically as well as horizontally. In several regions on western Madagascar, centering on this National Park and adjacent Nature Reserve, the superposition of vertical and horizontal erosion patterns has created dramatic “forests” of limestone needles.

I was actually excited enough to post a thought 😉 I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like like a few of these responses look as if they are coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional places, I’d
    like to follow you. Could you list every one of your communal sites like
