    Winners of the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2012: "Near the city of Morondava, on the West coast of Madagascar lies an ancient forest of Baobab trees. Unique to Madagascar, the endemic species is sacred to the Malagasy people, and rightly so. Walking amongst these giants is like nothing else on this planet. Some of the trees here are over a thousand years old. It is a spiritual place, almost magical." (© Ken Thorne/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

The giant trees—some of which are over a thousand years old—are known for their upside down look and are sacred to the Malagasy people.
