Not for the faint hearted as you get to see pigs and buffaloes being slaughtered. Look away . But there were singing and dancing. Speeches can be long .

Awesome view of the mountains and the plateaus surrounding the area. The tokonans (Toraja traditional houses) gives you a very original feeling with deep meanings. Recomended places for a deep culture explorers: Palawa, kete'kesu, and Londa. Experience the most expensive and sacred funerals too.

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.
