Tsiungy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is in northwest Madagascar's Melaky Region, 150 km north of Morondava. The southern part of hte protected area is Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park. The needle-sharp tsingy are on cliffs over the Manambolo River. The park centers on two geological formations, the Great Tsingy and the Little Tsingy. Together with the adjacent nature reserve, the park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the second largest protected area on Madagascar, with the island's largest pinnacle karst. At the southern edge of the park the Manambolo River has cut a spectacular gorge through the limestone. The area is only accessible during the dry (winter) season. Access is via Bekopaka.
