We made two canyoning expeditions in 2005 and 2006 in the region of Ambositra. During our discovery raid we set up three canyons, for beginners, medium and advanced sportsmen: Sahatanimena, Antalavegna and Antsahamaina. (These canyons have been fully photographed and maped). On the east area we are fitting out a new track: the Anjoma waterfall then Sahatanimena which was partially fit in 2005.
