Sometimes tourists pass over the traditional village of Palawa. Though you can find here numerous tongkonan and rice barns, fine examples of Torajan domestic architecture. Palawa is built on terraces which rise, and as you climb the soaring rooftops it will remind you of the spires of spectacular cathedrals.

Trekking in such a wonderful area all views will take your breath. When best season (May - July -> fewest tourists, September - December -> best time) the colours of nature are striking, included ot the flowers and the traditional tongkonan!

Address: Palawa, Tanah Toraja - Sulawesi
Directions: About 13 km. from Rantepao, head North for Pangli 1 km.
