Tilanga

Ten kilometers south of Rantepao, off the Rantepao–Makale road, Tilanga is a lovely, natural cool-water swimming pool. You can swim, but don’t be surprised if some friendly eels come to say hello. It's best visited during the rainy season.

Nanggala

This village has a particularly grandiose traditional house and an impressive fleet of 14 rice barns. The rice barns have a bizarre array of motifs carved into them, including depictions of soldiers with guns, Western women and cars. Keep an eye out for a colony of huge black bats hanging from trees at the end of the village. It's about 16km southeast of Rantepao; take a bemo (6000Rp) from Terminal Bolu.

  • It is the first time I am seeing such tradition house with a different look. I guess this is some storage place for the people to store rice, gun and other items. I want to see the interior of the house too. Please update some photos.

Tampang Allo

Tampang Allo's tau tau are some of the most impressive in Tana Toraja. Take a Kijang from Makale to Sangalla; get off about 1km after the turn-off to Suaya, and walk a short distance (less than 1km) through the rice fields to Tampangallo. The approach, following a small stream and rice paddies, is beautiful. You'll be greeted with a pile of skulls by the entrance.

The graves belong to the chiefs of Sangalla, descendants of the mythical divine being Tamborolangiq, who is believed to have introduced the caste system and death rituals into Torajan society.

Sullukang & Palatokke

From Ke’te Kesu you can walk on a paved road to Sullukang, which has a rante (ceremonial ground) marked by a number of large, rough-hewn megaliths, and on to Palatokke. In this beautiful area of lush rice paddies and traditional houses, there is an enormous cliff face containing several cave graves and hanging graves.

Access to the caves is difficult (there's a steep path with rubble to scramble over), but the scenery makes it worthwhile. From Palatokke there are roads to La’bo and Randanbatu, where there are more graves, and on to Sangalla, Suaya and Makale.
