Welcome to Tsiribihina River
Trips down the Tsiribihina generally start close to Miandrivazo and cover 146km of lazy bends all the way to Belo-sur-Tsiribihina. It takes about 2½ days to cover the distance at a leisurely pace. The scenery is beautiful and varied: the river is in turns broad in the plains and narrow through the Tsiribihina Gorges, with vast sandbanks converted to paddy fields alternating with tall, red cliffs and beautiful deciduous forest. Day one generally finishes with a visit to lovely waterfalls, and most trips arrive at Belo-sur-Tsiribihina by lunchtime on day three.
