5D4N TORAJA TOUR
Been there recently?
The Toraja are an ethnic group indigenous to a mountainous region of South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The word Toraja comes from the Buginese language term to riaja, meaning “people of the uplands”.
Before the 20th century, Torajans lived in autonomous villages, where they practised animism and were relatively untouched by the outside world. In the early 1900s, Dutch missionaries first worked to convert Torajan highlanders to Christianity. When the Tana Toraja regency was further opened to the outside world in the 1970s, it became an icon of tourism in Indonesia.
