Early morning departure in the direction of the Andringitra Mountain range. We will take the 45 km long dirt road leading to the entrance of the National park. Given the poor condition of the road we can only drive very slowly. However, this means that you will have plenty of time to contemplate the beautiful landscape that we will pass on our way! In Namoly we will enter the park and begin our first day of hiking with views of the queen and king sacred waterfalls. After four hours of walking, we will overnight in Andriampotsy at the foot of huge granite rock faces, at an altitude of 2050 m. Due to the altitude of this camp site, nights here are very cold and temperatures can drop below 0ºC in July and August. Warm clothes and a good sleeping bag are therefore essential!

Sunday

8 hours walk and 981m of ascent & 1 600m of descent

On the second day, you will wake up early with the first rays of sunlight to attack the ascent of Peak Boby. During approximately 2.5 hours, you will climb this summit in pure mountain scenery where the appearance of the rocks gives the impression of being at much higher altitude than the 2658 m of this second highest peak in Madagascar. The path to the summit consists of quite steep stone steps and requires a good level of fitness; some scrambling over rocks is needed during the last part of the ascent near the top. The peak is located on a beautiful ridge which constitutes a natural climatic barrier where the clouds coming from the East come to snuggle up and flood the land below with their masses of water. In good weather in the morning, the 360 ° view is absolutely magnificent with an impressive drop of more than 300m. The weather is changing rapidly on these ridges, and there is still a long way for us to go. Descent to the entrance of the park to pick up the vehicle that will take you back to Ambalavao
