The village is on the bank of the Mozambique Channel, on the estuary of the Tsiribihina. Its agricultural population lives by growing rice, butterbeans, green beans and tobacco. The area has a lot of history. It's there you will find the royal tombs of Tsianitry which houses the grave of King Toera, who was killed by the French army, and Princes George and Pierre Kamany.
Belo-sur-Tsiribihina is also a sacred site because every 10 years it is home to the "Fitahompa" ceremony, during which the royal relics are bathed in the river following precise rituals.
The cleverest among you will go 8km away where, after having crossed the mangrove and the forest on foot, you will be able to admire the tombs overlooked by erotic sculptures....worthy of a very unusual trip !
