Compared to the Tsingy de Bemaraha in the west, the red Tsingy are made of sandstone and not limestone and are therefore much more fragile. The reddish color is due to this formation, so typical of Madagascar, of hundreds of peaks made of the red laterite soil. The peaks of the Tsingy-Rouges are up to 10 meters high and glow in different shades of red. The Tsingy-Rouges are located in a gorge where more and more Tsingy appear due to erosion, but also Tsingy disappear due to wind and water erosion.
