If you are heading to Bantimurung to see Air Tejun Bantimurung, or if you are travelling to Tana Toraja by car or motorbike, take the time to drop off at Leang-Leang to view some caves with 'ages' old cave paintings. The paintings are said to be more than 6000 years old. There is a small 'museum' giving a brief history of the caves and the surrounding area. The paintings are very similar to those found in caves in Papua and even show similarities to Australian aboriginal cave paintings, suggesting long distance sea travel many years ago.

Address: Gua Leang Leang 10km from Maros, Sth Sulawesi
