  Climbing the cliffs
by sachara

For a visit to the Dogon villages at the cliffs and the plateau, the best thing to do is making a trekking of one or more days.

Excellent starting points are Bankas, Bandiagara and Sanga. At these places you can hire also your guide. We had a very good experience with a guide from Ben's Bar in Bankas.

For more information and pictures see my Bankas (and Bandiagara Escarpment) page or Djiguibambo (and Dogon country) page.
