    When feeling weakness in your stomach watching dead corps you better do not enter the burial-caves. Skulls, human bones and even corps are to be seen and sometimes seem to have been placed in strategic locations for the benefit of sightseers. Also superstitious minds better stay away from the caves-inside. You might get nightmares and bad dreams ... still the caves are an interesting site and beautiful location.

    Famous & Overrunned

    Tanah Toraja is famous for 2 things: its natural overwhelming beauty ... and its traditional funerals. The "Pesta Mati", the "Party for the Dead", is the Torajan funeral ceremony, which varies according to the class and wealth of the deceased.

    Tanah Toraja got famous too for its tourists. In a row they travel on the roads to the famous cave-tombs villages and, overrun the paths to the cave-tombs. The mountains have protected patterns of life and custom which have evolved and changed little over centuries. These same mountains have prevented easy access by tourists, so start your sightseeings early in the day, especially for photo-taking ...
