Londa is one of the most popular burial sites, and it is really beautiful. But there are so many more and less touristic burial sites. I highly recommend going with a guide (we went with local-guides.org. they're amazing) as they can not only bring you...More

Like most Torajans, they buried the dead inside stone cave, rock cliff or cave. Londa is one of the biggest and famous cemetery inside a giant cave. Please ask the guide to show you the cemetery of Toraja's Romeo and Juliet. Please be aware that...More

This is one of a kind burial cave, no smell and the actual skull can be seen in the caves. Need a guide to bring the light as it's very dark otherwise. Recommended.

The cabe burial culture is still thriving in this place. There are bones and skulls of hundred of year in the coffins stack inside the caves.
