Trip to the After World in Toraja

Feb 7 - Feb 14

A Trip to the After World

Between mountainous landscapes, South Sulawesi is blanketed with fishing villages and fertile soil for growing crops. The Buginese, Makassarese and Mandarese indigenous groups are skillful and fearless seafaring fishers, while Torajans are renowned for their massive peaked-roof traditional houses known as Tongkonan with colorful wood carvings based on nature’s abstracts and geometrical designs and their elaborate funeral rites and ancient animism beliefs. The funeral ritual is extremely elaborate and includes a death feast, buffalo sacrifice, and cliff, cave and stone burials. A visit to Toraja on Sulawesi Island is a trip to the after world!
