Ambalavo has a landmark named Zebu that is well known for its largest cattle market. People from all regions especially from the South bring their zebus for sale and purchase and walk hundreds of kilometres to get a good price for their cattle. The zebu market takes place every Wednesday and thousands of people and cattle gather for this big event. Ambalavao has its own large hill that is situated on the outskirts of the city which has roughly fenced area. At the corner of this place are small houses, where interested buyers and salesmen can withdraw to negotiate with the Zebus.
