"Visit Andraikiba and Tritriva lakes" Antsirabe Things to Do Tip by Norali

Antsirabe Things to Do: 10 reviews and 27 photos

Vulcano lakes that both have legend.

Tritriva lake (18 km from urban center) is my favourite, a mysterious one in a thorough whole (a crater lake). The legend? Two lovers decided to die there, after their families forbid their marriage. They are reported to be reincarnated as the two trees in an embrace on the river's bank.

As for Andraikiba (7 km from center), I don't remember about its legend but note that a fady exists there. Two indeed: no pork meat is allowed in its neighbourhood and no piece of silk fabrics would soak in it neither... Years ago, this was the place for water-skiing in Antsirabe. I don't know however as for current situation.

Ask your hotel personnel about how to get there. Last time I was there, I was a kid so I cannot remember but it seems that it is possible to go there by bicycle as well as by car or taxi.
