The Wilds of Madagascar
Third Canyon, Ankarana Reserve QTVR
(click and drag in image, left or right, up or down)

A steep and treacherous climb up a five-storey block of limestone topped with eroded tsingy spires provided this view. All around are roughly 200-foot cliffs of limestone, topped also by the sharp tsingy. To the west, towards the sun, is the savanna and, beyond (though out of view here), the Mozambique Channel. The Third Canyon, in which these images were taken, is one of several in the Ankarana Reserve that are broken and riven by tectonics and erosion.
