The Pangalanes canal is in eastern Madagascar, connecting north to south. It is also used for irrigation, (it is fresh water), and connecting Manakala lake with the river in the north, near Sahambavy. The only means of transport is the rowboat, usually with 4-8 paddlers. Ours was seven, one cook and steward. It was a beautiful experience thanks to the landscape and the people that we saw along the way. Here some pictures.
