Destination Details

Antananarivo, Madagascar

Andramasina

This small, very untouristy town south of Tana lies amid a raw and wild nature. Its major attractions are the Sisaony Falls with its natural pools (access only passable during the dry season) in middle of a thick forest and the tomb of price Andriasolo at the top of the hill. The artificial lake Lac Tsiazompaniry can be accessed by a very difficult track heading 34 km to the village of Haramalaza. The lake has a perimeter of 281.6 kilometres and an area of 32.7 km², more than double Lac Mantasoa. The area around the lake has been identified to have an enormous tourist potential so tourist infrWhatastructure is expected to develop here in the future.  The region around Andramasina is also well known for having preserved its traditional culture despite the proximity to the capital. At this point we should mention the “tolotra” ritual, which consist of killing and cooking a zebu and distributing a piece of meat to each member of the community. The “Tolotra” forms part of an ancient tradition, where nobles honoured the peasants that brought them the first rice harvest.
