Les Pics de Sindou, Banfora

#2 of 6 in Things to do in Banfora
Examine one of country's most peculiar landscapes at Les Pics de Sindou, a chain of narrow, craggy rock cones. Ideal for hiking and camping, this geological marvel rests near a small, traffic-free village. Hire a guide from the local tourism operator to learn interesting facts about the peaks' origins; afterwards, you can go on a motorcycle ride to explore the surrounding dirt roads. Besides enjoying the tortuous cones sculpted by natural elements, you can also visit a couple of local spots to purchase food, beer, and even homemade peanut butter.

  • I would recommend visiting this troglodyte village at the foot of a small cliff 40km from Sindou. It is an abandoned village where you can see dwellings and barhouses of the FOURTEENTH century. The guide who runs the visits is called Richard, and knows practically everything in the area. You can contact him at 00226-76480659

  • A group of rocks that have been created centuries ago by sea that now is too far away (the country has no coastal region) mentoring, tour is approximately 1 hour for someone who bears climbing. The space is sacred for teams (animistes) where do ceremonies, sacrifices, the view, the Entourage is unlimited and indescribable
