Travel | Tana Toraja 5 Senses – Taste TORAJALAND The fresh rice in the central marketplace warungs, the lasting taste of the arabica coffee and of course the ginger-scented sarapa will stay forever in the memory. Newly created rice terraces cling like limpets to the steep hillside above Rantepao. Warung-warung yang menjual beras, kopi Arabika-nya yang enak, dan tentunya sarapa beraroma jahe adalah hal-hal yang tak terlupakan. A farmer carries his wares to market. A lone farmer negotiates his way through the elevated walkways that connect the rice terraces. 5 Senses – Sight VALLEY VIEWS MAKASSAR TO MAMUJU Flight Time 55 minutes Frequency 7 flights per week Mamuju •• Tana Toraja To appreciate a Torajan experience, one has to ‘get close to the stars’. A drive to the highest points will give spectacular views of the majestic valleys below. The rice terraces tumble to the valley floor and are surrounded by the soaring roofs of tongkonan houses. Untuk merasakan bagaimana menjadi orang Toraja, kita harus “mendekat ke bintang”. Berkendara ke puncak, kita akan melihat pemandangan lembah yang menakjubkan. Sawah terhampar hingga ke dasar lembah dengan atap-atap rumah Tongkonan di sekitarnya. 135
