Mali map Karte Bandiagara Escarpment

The Bandiagara Escarpment is a sandstone cliff with a rocky plateau on top and rises in height from 100 metres to over 500 metres above the lower sandy flats to the south. It stretches for about 170 kilometres from 100 kilometres in the east of the city Mopti to about 44 kilometres in the northeast of the city Bandiagara at the Grandamia massif.

The Bandiagara Escarpment is the principal area where the ethnic group of the Dogon Peoples lives. The major settlement of the Dogon people can be found in the Bandiagara Escarpment.

The cultural and natural value of the Bandiagara Escarpment has been recognised by the UNESCO, which declared it as a World Heritage site in 1989.
