When you are tired of all those cave graves and stone graves in Tana Toraja, come here for something different! There are 102 menhirs in total here, at Bori Kalimbuang. This megalith site is classified as tourism object from UNESCO world cultural heritage.

One of the must see sites in Toraja. Composed of a few traditional Tongkonan Torajan traditional houses, burial sites carved in stones and most unique is the many monolitic stones on the ground for burial ceremonies. Relatively easy 30min drive from Rantepao.
