Package Itinerary

The Dogons live along the Bandiagara Escarpment, which is essentially a cliff that separates two relatively flat regions of different altitude. One of the best known things about the Dogons is their ancient knowledge of the stars. From the Lonely Planet Guide: "(the Dogon Agrarian Calendar) has an eerie Twilight Zone mystique to it: it's thought to be based on the orbital cycles of a white dwarf star that is invisible to the naked eye. It was only discovered in the 1960s by a high powered telescope, despite the fact that the Dogons had been using the star as a seasonal marker for more than a millennium."

Dogon people have also a rich culture. The best way to see different aspect of their culture and life is trekking 2 or 3 days spending the night on roofs or in tents on mountains.
