The Grand Tsingy of Bemaraha in western Madagascar is the world’s largest stone forest. Isolated and inhospitable, this huge collection of razor-sharp, high spiked vertical rocks of eroded limestone looks like the last place where wildlife would thrive.
But despite its cold, dangerous appearance, the labyrinth of 300 foot stones is home to a number of animal species, including 11 types of lemur. Its name “Tsingy” translates as ‘where one cannot walk’.
Light Poles can be seen at nights over large cities with different colored lights. They can only be seen during very cold weather (the temperature of -20 Celsius degrees or lower is required), with minimal wind and plenty of tiny ice crystals in the atmosphere.
