The Domes of Fabedougou

These amazing weathered rocks in the village of Fabedougou, near Banfora, in  Burkina Faso, are nearly 2 billion years old sculpted into quirky dome like shapes  by water and erosion. The domes are about fifty meters high and formed  at a time when this area was occupied by an ocean. The site is both an excellent view and climbing spot.
