Arrival and departure

Most people living in the Netherlands probably fly with KLM / Air France via Paris to Antananarivo Schiphol (short: Tana) and back. Here some advice,

If you have your travel plans you can not go the very next day after arriving on tour. You then run the risk that you should do. Long time without case The flight from Paris to Antananarivo, arriving around 22:30 is notorious for leaving luggage in Paris. And since this flight every 2 days go, it is essential to be sure to pick up your suitcase. Itself again after 2 days Our tour began, the day after arrival, with a short trip from Tana to Andasibe and return, with one night, and so we were just in time to pick up. My suitcase from the airport There is really nothing to get at that airport even a toothbrush, even our hotel had nothing, so plug for safety some extra stuff in your hand luggage or change the time what with the trunk of a travel partner.


Antananarivo is not a city where you want to stay long. There is little to do and, reputedly dangerous.
Tana plane to Paris at around midnight, so you’ll want to spend in each case.’s last day in Tana I would like to recommend the following program:

1. visit Ambohimanga, the only cultural place on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Take as a guide to visit, walk around and enjoy the views. Buildings and palaces

2. Lunch at the Café de la Gare. This restaurant is housed in the former railway station Tana. Amazing!

3. Ride to the highest hill where the palace (Rova) Queen Ranovalona II. The palace is ws still closed for renovations, but the area adjacent viewpoint is fantastic.

4. Visit the Marche Artisanal de la Digue, where you can find. Around 100 shops in any souvenir

Traffic in Tana is hopeless. Count at least 2 hours to get. From one side of town to the other

Climbing. For one, a dream, the other a terrifying adventure. Climbing a mountain is often an ordeal and costs every year thousands of climbers life. Below you can read about the most dangerous mountains in the world.

1. Eiger
In 1858, for the first time an attempt to climb.’s 3970 meter high mountain Eiger in the Swiss Alps But it did no one to explain. The toughest climb the north side This happened only eighty years later, in 1938. From 1935, several daredevils tried an attempt to reach the summit. Unfortunately had 64 climbers pay for this with death. The northern side of the Eiger has nothing for nothing nicknamed Murder Wall and is so dangerous because it is technically a difficult climb with a high risk of falling rocks.


2. Annapurna

The ascent via the south wall is considered the toughest. The first successful climb through that side was in 1970, while the mountain was climbed twenty years earlier. In 1987 made a couple Poland the first climb during the winter and in 2007, the Slovenian climber Tomaž Humar the first solo ascent via the south wall.


3. K2
When you go climbing, which is located in the Pakistani Karakoram Range, the infamous K2 then there is a good chance you will not survive. For every four climbers reaching the summit, there dies namely during the climb. Around the summit, extreme storms, which often take several days. Hence, the K2 also the rugged mountain is called. The first successful climb was in 1954 and it took until 1977 before it was matched.


4. Montblanc
Maybe not as challenging as the giants of the Himalayas, but the Mont Blanc, which lies on the border between France and Italy, many more climbers perished. Just because the mountain is so popular, more people try to climb it. This has cost 8,000 lives.


5. Nanga Parbat
