It was instructive to be welcomed into the village chief' house to learn about the structure of the village and how it operates.

If this is your first time in Indonesia, it s a good start, locals are friendly and want to tell their history, a bit rundown, but a good start for exploring other traditional villages

You had to pay an entrance fee, but couldn't see into the houses. Locals not very friendly, was a bit of waste of our time. Near to Ruteng

Nothing really interesting and beatiful there. Locals are not friendly. If you want to see a house inside - they ask money. Entrance fee - 20k IDR/person.

The "village" contains 2 large and 1 small traditional houses, so it is not a village. Although the villagers were missing. Nothing compared to other real traditional villages...Not worthit

it's only 2houses.we didn't get inside as we thought it's not so much as other traditional villages.I suggested to visit this village first before visit waerebo and bena.So you will get the feeling to know this village.

These structures are authentic and still lived in. The internal framework has five stories and mirrors the Spiderweb rice field design. Very nice cultural village
