What To Expect
Located in 60 km from Tana, Lake Mantasoa is a huge dam built in 1937, the dam used to regulate the course of Ikopa. Perfectly integrated in a hilly landscape, the artificial lake is very charming, with its banks lined with shady pine forest, and it provides an idyllic place in the middle of the capital.
Head to the industrial city of Jean Laborde (1837-1857). Located not far from the lake, it used to be the largest and most prosperous industrial complex of the Indian Ocean. It used to be where the manufacturing of weapons and ammunition for Queen Ranavalona I as well as building materials were processed.
There is also a tomb called Soamandrakizay or "eternal happiness" that you can visit along the way.
