TOURISM NEWS FLASH

The way down to RanomafÓna 30/12/2013 | 10:41:22

About 40 miles away from Fianarantsoa city, the small town of Ranomafana, and more accurately speaking, the national park of the same name, make the dream destination for nature lovers.


The gateway to the south eastern part of the Great Isle is an emerald green marvel of nature manned by the people of Ranomafana town. The Ranomafana National Park opened its doors for the first time ever in 1991 and keeps attracting the largest number of tourists during the booming period of visits. A sinuous 7 miles long slope already provides an inspiring sight on the big village on one side, as well as on the park's woods on the other side. Apart from its abundance of tropical animal and vegetal species, Ranomafana offers a peculiar landscape of towering peeks seemingly wrought of greenish carpet. The last 7 miles leading to Ranomafana may be put behind on foot... actually a judicious choice, considering that a ride in a vehicle can in no way offer the opportunity to peer in the distance at the scores of waterfalls writhing alongside the south eastern national road, and breathe in the clear air exuded by the forest by the same way. Ranofamana can be accessed though a road in decent estate and a 10 hours long journey from the capital city Antananarivo... or only by a couple of hours long trip from Fianarantsoa city.
