Like the previous Tana Toraja route: https://es.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=19115604, the kilometers are relative since most of them are the minibus.
This tour was accompanied by an autochthonous guide. Following the track is not necessary the guide service. Another way to go through my proposal is to rent a motorcycle. For very little money you can reach all these places perfectly and it can be a fun proposal. Motorcycling is not as dangerous here as in other parts of Indonesia.
We start again by taking the minibus in Rantepao. The first destination is to see the ritual of a funeral. It is an event of tourist interest and in this time take the opportunity to do all the ceremonies of the year. Although it seems incredible, when someone dies they keep it in the house without burying (sometimes up to 4 years). According to their beliefs, the deceased should not be dismissed in an abrupt manner and they keep their body at home so that the "farewell" is little by little. They even make a sculpture imitating the dead they put in the niche so that for many more years it seems that it is still there.
In the burial ceremony, a kind of "pilgrimage" is prepared, where neighbors, friends, relatives ... carry gifts. They carry pigs that if the family of the deceased considers, they sacrifice it to eat it among the present. The algid part of the ceremony is the sacrifice of one or more buffaloes (it depends on the purchasing power of the deceased). The buffalo must die standing up, with one or more blows in the throat. (As it is a little morbid I have not included photos with too much detail).
When we finished the ceremony we went back to the minibus seeing the landscape of this region. Rice fields and typical architecture accompany us in this section.
We go back to the minibus to go to see a town with typical houses and burials of children in trees. As they were smaller the niche was carved into the trunk. (I have it marked on the track although I thought it was a bit "touristy", with souvenir stalls included).
The next stop point is a burial cave. Very interesting place surrounded by rice fields. Inside the cave we could see skeletal remains mainly skulls and other items related to burials. Also sculptures that represent those buried. (Also marked on the track).
And finally we went to Datang Suaya, the last burial site we visited. This time on a cliff with a considerable height. It is surprising to see how the coffins climb up to that height by tied bamboos.
Finished this last location we returned in minibus to Rantepao.
