Nature reserve in Madagascar is a 'devil's obstacle course'

The Devil's Obstacle Course


Welcome to Madagascar, home of the Tsingy de Bemaraha Nature Reserve, one of the most inaccessible places on Earth. To quote "Men's Journal," a trek into the rugged nature reserve is a "made-to-order trip for one-percenters."

In the local language, the name for the place means "where one cannot walk barefoot." It's easy to see why the reserve has thousands of acres of what one adventurer called a "no man's land -- a devil's obstacle course." The rock formations there are unlike any he'd ever seen.

It's an endless expanse of jagged limestone landscape -- with razor-sharp rocks and spires jutting off in all directions. A place so difficult to reach and explore, that it's been said fewer people have penetrated it than have been on the moon.
