"Walking through the Sa'dan valley" Rantepao Off The Beaten Path Tip by Daihappydai
Rantepao Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 15 photos
There are a number of very good walks of half-day, day or multiple day length that you can take in the Toraja region with or without a guide. There are tracks through ricefields, passing villages, and one path even requires you to walk through a churchyard - built in the middle of a ricefield. The local people are very friendly and a few words of Torajan such as 'Apa kareba sangmane?' or 'Apa kareba sangbene?' - both mean 'How are you? but depend upon whether you are addressing a man or a woman and responding 'Melo' meaning good or fine. Also the general 'Salama' for 'Hello' and the always necessary 'Kurre sumanga' for 'Thank you'. There is plenty to see in the pcturesque valleys.
