Tana Toraja means “The Land of Toraja People”. It’s a region in the highlands of Sulawesi, one of Indonesia’s 17 000 islands. Why are the Toraja interesting? They have very elaborate burial rites. It’s a very remote place, therefore not many tourists come here. But if you take the time and struggle to visit, you will not regret it. I know, I don’t.
Tana Toraja – a practical guide
You can totally do this trip on your own. The Toraja Land is very welcoming, people are friendly and it’s fairly easy to get to once you arrive in Makassar.
