Discover The high plateaux Madagascar

The fourth largest island on the globe, Madagascar has no mountains, but most of the centre of the island consists of high plateaux stretching over the full length of the island from the north to the south. There are three main highland areas, with heights varying from 2,500 to 4,500 ft: the Tsaratanana in the north-west, the Ankaratra, south of the capital city Antananarivo, and the Andringitra, in the region of Fianarantsoa in the south-east of the country.

    The "hauts plateaux"

    Modest despite their name, the "hauts plateaux" cover a large part of the island. They offer unobstructed views of the surroundings, especially of the island's famous red earth.
