STAGE 3 • 27 KMS


From Irodo River to Ankerika village

STAGE 3

Stage 3 is the most spectacular of your stage trail calendar, with the famous red Tsingy crossing: geological formations unique in the world! Be careful for the last kilometers, in the Satrana forest there is sand to walk in. Before Ultra Trail stage starts a 4×4 transfer in needed from camp 3 to the other side of Irodo river, too deep on this area.

  • Floor: Laterite (50%) + Sand (50%)
  • Obstacles: a river to cross, halfway up your legs
  • Highlights:
    • The famous red Tsingy (km 6)
    • CP 1 located inside Irodo Village (km 13)
    • The satrana forest (km 22)
    • Passing the mangroves (km 25)
  • Afternoon: Ankerika village is very near our camp. You can speak with its inhabitants, shop a little bit and enjoy the sunset from the camp.
  • Sleep well for the continuation of your Stage Trail Calendar.
