Maromokotro is the highest peak in Madagascar at an elevation of 9,436 feet above sea level. The mountain is located in the Tsaratanana Massif which is near Bealanana. Maromokotro is also the highest mountain in Antsiranana. The mountain is located inside the Tsaratanana Reserve which is a protected area. Mount Maromokotro is an important source of water for the surrounding area and a major source of some of the rivers including Bermarivo River, Mahavavy River, and Sambirano River. The summit of the mountain sometimes covered with snow which disappears during the summer. Mount Maromokotro is not very popular with climbers and tourist because of its remote location. However, it has stunning waterfalls and offers a tranquil environment for those who manage to get to it. The mountain was first climbed in 1936 by a French explorer. There is a small cairn on its summit from where one can have a wonderful view of the island.
