Makassar’s Karsts Mountains and Village Life
Makassar’s Karsts Mountains
and Village Life
Karst Mountains and limestone cliffs form the décor of one of South Sulawesi’s landmarks. Visitors
truly will be blessed with views beyond your wildest imagination when sailing from
Rammang Rammang Village through this natural wonder outside Makassar.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Almost beating the Karst Mountains of Yunnan, China in size, yet equal in breath-taking beauty, the karst mountain region near the village of Rammang Rammang definitely make it in the top three of amazing sights outside of Makassar.
Dooming up from afar after a 1.5-hour drive (75 kilometres), this protected region of South Sulawesi not only presents a unique landscape. Drawings carved inside the hills and caves, archaeological sources of prehistoric caves and its heritage back to thousand years ago are clear reminders that this region of Indonesia was once inhabited.
08:00 - 15:00
Today we cruise the picture-perfect scenery of Rammang-Rammang, with its rugged limestone karsts, palm trees and rice paddies. We are met by our guide and driver and transfer on a journey that will take about 75 minutes into the countryside to Rammang-Rammang which has a sublime landscape compared to China’s Yunnan region.
Using either a canoe, or a motorised boat, we paddle, or cruise along the river and soak-up the surrounding landscape and then disembark at a small traditional Bugis village to observe local life where we enjoy a picnic lunch at a local’s home.
