I saw people in Toraja could live in different way, but somehow it works. I think it is a place where you could re-think about your own life and understand more about local wisdom.

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.
