The Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park is a world heritage site found in the island of Madagascar, Africa. This national park isn’t known for its trees. The Tsingy de Bemaraha is literally nothing but spikes!

Tsingy is a 250-square-mile tiger trap made up of massive limestone obelisks riddled with jagged spears. And yes, they will cut your pretty face. Biologists call the area a bio-fortress. The park is so impassable and uncharted that every time a team scientist goes on an expedition there, they find new species.  The Tsingy is literally home to entirely unseen life-forms.

More interestingly, the vast majority of the park remains completely unexplored to this day. The Tsingy is so unexplored because the forest of rock really is razor-sharp.

"Tsingy" is a Malagasy word for "where you cannot walk barefoot." When one expedition visited, they couldn't navigate with ordinary rock-climbing gear because "Tsingy chewed equipment and flesh with equal ease. At times it was like climbing amid giant skewers, the consequences of a fall suggested in the mutilated trunks of toppled trees below."

Lusting for some of that wander. #mada #tsingy #unescoworldheritage #adventureon #??
