TORAJA

Access at KETE KESU

The village is easy to enter and explore.

The burial site is located next to the village in a valley. The stairs that are leading down there are not very long, have low steps and horizontal stretches to rest in between.

Suaya

Access at SUAYA

Suaya is the most accessible site to see the Tau Tau from up close.  A short (bumpy) path leads up to the rock from the parking area. 

Access at KAMBIRA 

Getting down to the baby grave tree is only possible via a long flight of stairs, but can be organised also for wheelchair users when the whether is dry.

Tau Tau in Londa

Access at LEMO AND LONDA

Londa and Lemo both are located at the bottom of a valley, with long flights of stairs leading down there. We provide assistance for those who want to make their way down there to see the graves from close up.

Both sites can also be observed (in some distance) from much easier to reach observation platforms close to the parking area.

Access at BORI

Apart from five steps to get onto the compound, the small ceremonial site is easy to explore. Paths are well-paved but partly have some gradient.

Palawa

Access to PALAWA

It is possible to get directly into the village by car. Paved albeit rough ground makes exploring the village easy.

Access to BATUTOMONGA AND LOKOMATA

Nowadays, the road along Batutumonga up to Lokomata is well maintained. There are a number of spots to stop and admire the scenery. There is no need to walk or climb anywhere.

MAKASSAR

Fort Rotterdam

Access at FORT ROTTERDAM

The inner court of the Fort is on ground-level and well-paved. It is possible to get onto the old walls by means of built-in ramps. The ramp in the front at the main gate is very bumpy, a better on is in the back of the Fort. 

Access at BENTENG SOMBA OPU

The large park can be explored on mostly well-paved alleys. It is allowed to enter the traditional houses; all have wooden stairs at their entrances, but some are shorter and flater than others.

Limestone Montains at Leang Leang

Access at LEANG LEANG CAVES

The caves are spread all over an amazing landscape of cast mountains. Driving through this scenery is worth the visit already. Some caves can be spotted from the road. Some few caves are within possible reach for visitors with mobility limitations.
