Have you seen anything as dangerously spectacular as this vast stone forest in Madagascar?  Tropical rains over time form the sharp limestone ‘Tsingy’ pinnacles ‘where one cannot walk.’  What is starkly fascinating is that the forest houses 11 species of Lemur, 100 variety of birds and 45 kinds of reptiles  –  that’s more than amazing.
