Toraja Village Walk And Funeral Ceremony,
Tana Toraja, South Sulawesi
Info : Toraja Village Walk And Funeral Ceremony
Enjoy a light trek to a local Toraja village, where you can interact with the villagers and witness their unique funeral rites, which this part of Indonesia has become famous for. Please note that while this is very interesting from a cultural and anthropological point of you, it is not for everyone, as the live sacrifices of buffalo and pigs can be quite disturbing. However, there is also much more to the ceremony’s than the sacrifices- the traditional dances, large feasts and huge family gatherings are well worth stopping by for! Funerals are such a large part of the culture and tradition of the Torajans it can take years to plan them, and family will come from all over Indonesia, Papua and even as far as Australia to take part.

The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
