We definitely recommend you to visit Rantepao with a guide. So many places you visit have such a long history and are closely linked to cultural habits - without any explanation a lot of questions would remain. We can totally recommend Yuspan as a guide!...More

We visited Toraja in may 2018 for 3 full days and were lucky enough to have found Yuspan as a guide. For this region, a truly Torajan guide is highly recommended in order to truly understand the culture. Not only does Yuspan meet this requirement,...More

Drove from the capital to Toraja - took around 6-7 hours. Fly in is maybe possible now, but was not an option 1 yr ago. The air strip is present but as far as understood not actively used.
