On the island of Sulawesi fare up in the mountain lays the small plateau, the home of the Toraja people. Driving on to the plateau you immediately realize the difference from other parts of Indonesia, even the houses looks different like they are upside down. The hanging graves, ancient ceremonial burial places and huge cremation celebrations are just some of the unique tradition found only within the plateau.
Toraja is the highlight of visiting Sulawesi (formerly Celebes), one of the main islands of Indonesia, and the 11th largest island in the world. Makassar is the largest city on Sulawesi Island in terms of population, and the fifth largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, and Medan. Tanah Toraja tours is an exotic adventure—an area rich in culture and off the beaten track. Western tourists expected to see stone-age villages and pagan funerals. Visit Toraja is for tourists who have gone as far as Bali and are willing to see more of the wild, “untouched” islands.
