Experience a Toraja Funeral Ceremony


I am Ino and I am from the South of Sulawesi in Indonesia, a picturesque mountainous region home to an indigenous group, the Torajans. I will take you to one of our funeral ceremonies, a significant event in our culture. It is a grand celebration of life, much like a going-away party, and everybody in the village takes part.

At 8 am, I will pick you up from your homestay. We will then go by car/foot/public transport to Kete Kesu to see a traditional village. The Torajan’s have unique and traditional house architecture. After Kete Kesu we will experience a Toraja funeral ceremony if there is one taking place. A Toraja funeral ceremony lasts for four days, with different rituals each day.

Then we will have lunch in a restaurant in Rantepao where you can try Torajan traditional food such as Pa'piong (meat cooked in Bamboo). In the afternoon, we will visit a burial site of the Torajans and see the baby grave on the big tree. At around 5 pm, I will bring you back to your homestay or hotel.
