1523 BURKINA FASO - Peaks of Sindou

Peaks of Sindou (Les Pics de Sindou in French) are a spectacular natural geological formation of sandstone, where nature has really outdone herself. It is incredible rocky chains that have formed due to sandstorms coming from the Sahel in the north, in the eastern part of Burkina Faso. Though geologicaly similar to the Bungle Bungles of Australia, the Peaks of Sindou have an entirely different ecosystem and can even be said to surpass the Bungle Bungles in beauty.
