The Central Highlands of Madagascar stretch from North to South along more than 1000 kilometres of the central part of the island. The altitude varies from 800 to 2700 metres at the highest peaks, but the main area lies slightly over 1000 metres above sea level. The landscape is made up of a varied plateau with a succession of large rounded boulders, hills and several higher mountains, valleys and rivers, the biggest lakes of Madagascar, shimmering rice fields and hollow-like depressions. This hilly and steep terrain, together with the stable climatic conditions, makes this area a perfect region for rice cultivation.
