This is the most alien looking place on the planet: The ‘Floating Rocks’ Of Madagascar

In the dry west of Madagascar, the Bemaraha National Park is best known for its Tsingys – sharp, bizarre limestone formations that can rise up to 40 meters and form a unique landscape with deep cracks, towers, and sculptures.

The Tsingy of Bemaraha are the tallest of their kind in Madagascar

The Tsingy of Bemaraha have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because old tombs have been found in numerous caves. Unique in this area is the vertical and horizontal erosion that creates rock formations that look like floating rocks.

Visitors move on bridges, stairs and a wide network of hiking trails. Strong footwear and long trousers are advisable due to the razor-sharp limestone. Numerous rare plants, such as vines, pachypodia or euphorbia also grow on the limestone peaks.
