The Dogon are a nomadic people and the Cliff of Bandiagara might be their centrepiece. On the Unesco World Heritage List as well, the Bandiagara site is a fascinating landscape of cliffs and sandy stones with fine architecture including houses, altars and the Togu Na, the communal meeting areas. Today, traditions like masks, rituals and ancestor worship live on in the region. Equally interesting are the geological, archaeological and ethnological meaning of this area and together with the landscape, the Bandiagara plateau might just be one of the finest places to visit in Mali.
