Religious festivals celebrated according to the lunar calendar
Journey into the unknown, to a land where volcanoes smoke above dense jungles and indigenous tribal customs are treated like national treasures. Prowl through rainforests to rice paddies lined by distinctive Torajan homes, with prowed teak frames and hieroglyphs etched into their facades. See effigies of the region’s deceased, set into niches in limestone cliffs. Learn about the area’s distinctive funeral practices, and witness an utterly foreign way of life. Contrast the remote and archaic lifestyle here with a visit to Bali’s effusively traditional artistic and cultural heart. See a Balinese ceremony, meet a local art and antique collector, and learn about some of the unique burial practices that continue in this area to this day.
