"FALAISE DU BANDIAGARA" Bandiagara by seratonin

Bandiagara Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 122 photos

Bandiagara is a small town near the great Bandiagara escarpement (the "falaise du Bandiagara"). It is in the center of the so called "pays du Dogon", a part of Mali where the Dogon people live.
This people have a very interesting and rich cultural live, and probably more fascinating for the tourists, their towns are very pittoresque!
You can hike for several days along the Escarpement and visit the small villages. It is advisible to take a local guide, as it is very difficult to find a Dogon in the villages who speakes french.

More information and pictures of my Mali ttrip can be found on my personal Dogon page.
