Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is a nature reserve located near the western coast of Madagascar in Melaky Region. The area was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 due to the unique geography, preserved mangrove forests, and wild bird and lemur populations. It is characterised by needle-shaped limestone formations, above cliffs over the Manambolo river. The incredibly sharp limestone formations can cut through equipment and flesh easily, which makes traversing them extremely difficult.


When the plank is placed on the ground (not including the floor of multi-story buildings), razor sharp limestone spikes will burst from the ground, breaking through any flooring and shredding/piercing anything in it's path. The formation and direction of these spikes are random each time, and sizes are known to vary from knee-height to more than 8-feet tall.
