Hike «Diavolana» in the Andringitra
National Park. One-day hike

Circuit in Andringitra National Park Diavolana (or full moon) takes you through wild meadows of flowers, and orchids to a lunar landscape which deserves its name well! It is a land made of narrow valleys, dizzily-high cliffs, streams and waterfalls. A national park is established since 1947 and recently openend to the public. This massive is undoubtedly the kingdom of hikers, whatever their level are!

If you have a full day and make an early start, you could do the Circuit Diavolana. The trek begins at the main campsite. This 13km route through a range of climate zones runs below the cliffs, above the waterfalls, and finishes at a campsite. This hike is open to everyone but more for people comfortable with mountainous grounds. You must not be afraid by rambling day. Even if the pace is peaceful, the ground is not flat. You must be ready to walk hilly tracks, few or not marked, steep slopes, and difficults passages (assistance if needed). There are no technical passages and anyone who feel at ease on this kind of ground can hike without any risks. You do not need to prepare physically, you only just need to take your time and follow a pace adapted to your physical condition.

The initial forest is slowly substituted by alpine meadows covered by orchids at the end of the rainy season. The path passes by the Riambavy (the queen) and Riandahy (the king) sacred waterfalls, which tumble 300m down the escarpment. They are said to be the embodiment of a royal couple who could not conceive a child. They climbed up to the falls with a spiritual healer and sacrificed a white-faced zebu to the ancestors, so that they could conceive a child.

As you climb, the landscape becomes increasingly Lord of the Rings, with streams tumbling through the rocky grassland, stone-walled Betsileo tombs tucked into clefts in the mountain and the vast, curtain-like folds of the higher altitudes creating a looming backdrop that never seems to get any closer – until suddenly the cliffs are right above you. The granite peaks and pleated escarpment dominate the view.

At the highest point, 2 100m, there's a rock slab that serves as a convenient picnic spot and offers an excellent viewing point to spot the ring-tailed lemurs on the opposite cliffs. These high mountain lemurs have grown thick feather to protect themselves against the cold of this high altitude habitat.

The whole tour takes about 10 hours, it is strenuous but certainly one of the most beautiful trackking in the area!
