Ambalavao (New Valley) is a town in the central highlands of Madagascar with a population of 31,000. The town has the largest zebu market in Madagascar where herdsmen come to sell their cattle after walking their herds from virtually every part of the country. The zebu market takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays on a hill approximately 1km south along the RN7 road. Ambalavao is also the centre of Antaimoro paper making.

Andringitra park borders the north edge of the town where an WWF office provides information and guides.

The National road (RN7) connects Ambalavao with Fianarantsoa and Toliara.
