Passing this market under high sun, I remind myself on the similar markets in Europe, because only different was kind of animal: water buffalo. Other things were same: tired people, poor animals, hot and wet weather and waiting for traders. But, animals are so beautiful,...More

It’s a must see when in Rantepao. The market price for kerbau is sometimes mindstaggering. It shows how important the rambu solo ceremony is to Torajans.

How can you come to Rantepao and not visit the pasar bolu. Impressive and unique. You don't have to buy a kerbau. Just enjoy this place.

Definitely an interesting place to go while you're in Rantepao / Tana Toraja. This market is where the locals can get their buffaloes in preperation for the ceremony. I recommend a tour guide (Ritha - +6281355557468). Fluent in English and very informative about the Torajan...More
