Antsirabe certainly does not lack attractions. In addition to the walks in the alleys, in the shade of its big jacarandas, and the picturesque walks in rickshaw, one can visit the unavoidable sites which are in the vicinity. One can climb the Ivohitra, which rises to an altitude of 1,651 m to enjoy the breathtaking view of the volcanic landscape of Antsirabe. A panorama that invites to discover the city further, and to go to meet its famous lakes. Indeed, these are part of the sites not to be missed when staying in the region.
Hiking at Tritriva Lake
In terms of hiking to the lakes, the first place we want to visit is certainly Lake Tritiva. Located in the southwest of Antsirabe, it seems surrounded by myths and mysteries, and fascinates fans of tragic love stories. Indeed, the legend tells that it is in this place that two annoyed lovers put an end to their days. In addition, its dark waters accentuate the funny impression it gives to visitors. Once at the summit of Mount Tritriva, it takes about 20 minutes to complete the tour of the lake.
Excursions to Antsirabe
Usually registered on the circuit of the visitors left for a visit of the lake Tritriva, Lake Andraikiba is another attraction of Antsirabe. This former meeting place for sailing enthusiasts is today one of the most sought-after sites to enjoy a pleasant picnic with friends and family. It is accessed by taking the road that leads Betafo about 6 km, then a track of 1 km. A short trip that is definitely worth the detour. The view of the lake is breathtakingly beautiful. In addition, one can still see the remains of the former nautical club.
