Le Mont Passot est le lieu que je recommande de visiter le jour de votre arrivée. Pourquoi ? La vue panoramique à 360° va tout de suite vous montrer que l’île, contrairement à ce que vous pouvez lire sur le web, est verte et casi inhabitée si vous sortez d’Ambatoloaka – madirokely 🙂

History of Mont Passot

If one places Mount Passot in history, this site of panoramic view which was formerly a volcano owes indeed its name to the captain Pierre Passot of the French marine artillery army. Indeed Captain Passot christened the chief towns of Nosy Be "Hell Ville" after the name of his superior, Anne Chrétien Louis de Hell, Governor of Bourbons, because at that time Nosy Be was under the protection of the French.
