Granite guardians of Tsaratanana, Madagascar


Sunrise near the base of Mt Maromokotra (2876m), the highest peak on the island during our 400km trek from the east coast to the west; the world first expedition ever to do so.

While exploring the Tsaratanana Massif alone at sunrise I came across these giant intriguing pillars which looked the Moai on Easter Island. These are naturally carved by the heavy rain which lashes this side of the mountain.

They looked like ancient guardians staring impassively across the rainforest far below.
