Rantepao Things to Do: 84 reviews and 219 photos

by RoyJava

About 6 km. from Rantepao you find the very extensive burial natural LONDA cave at the base of a massive cliff face, with interconnecting passages and impressive entrances. The entrance to the cave is guarded by a balcony of TAU-TAU. You can watch the TAU-TAU from a close distance. Make your entrance led by lovely kids who enjoy to volunteer as guide for taking orang turis (you, and me!) into the ghastly cave.

A local myth says that the people buried in the LONDA caves are the descendants of Tangdilinoq, chief of the Toraja at the time when they were pushed out of the Enrekang region by new arrivals and forced to move into the highlands...
