Les Pics de Sindou, Banfora

4.4
#4 of 8 in Parks in Burkina Faso
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.

  • A must see place, you can also see places for fetishes and voodoo. Wonderful for hiking.. Don't forget to hire a tour guide.  more »
  • In addition to the site, which is exceptional, we enjoyed our tour guide who paid particularly attention to persons with reduced mobility (who were supported, expected,...). The ancient history of this site and the village of Sindou is interesting.

  • At first glance, you'd think it is a simple alignment of peaks. It's up to find out that in reality it is a tray completely surrounded by these geological curiosities. The guided tour is useful to know the life that existed there before (please allow an hour). Don't forget to take water and a CAP because there is almost no shadow up there. Also put sneakers (our guide did change my shoes who was wearing sandals), the climb is quick but growing hard!
