    Picturesque and scenic
    Apparently opened to tourists only 7 years ago. This experience starts with a boat ride giving you respite from the heat as it weaves along a river. You then arrive at RemmangRemmang Village which is a series of rice fields set amongst karst mountains. It is very picturesque and scenic. Support the locals along the way by buying a drink or two!

    Definitely worth a visit! Perfect for one day tour from Makassar
    Amazing area with stunning scenery! Approx. 1.5h outside Makassar, Rammang Rammang is definitely a place worth visiting. You can take a boat for a very reasonable price (15€) to get to Rammang Rammang village. There you can hike on a little rack through rice fields and visit some of the several caves. The people in Rammang Rammang still live very traditional and there aren't many tourists so far, so its still a quite authentic experience. We really enjoyed it there :) If you live in or near Makassar, we can highly recommend Alex as a driver/guide. His english is excellent and he can pick you up in Makassar, bring you to Rammang Rammang, give you some inside information, and bring you back (you can also stop wherever you want in between - we e.g., also stopped Leang Leang on the way, which we, however, found less spectacular). Just contact him via WhatsApp if interested (+62 813-4431-7277)

    What a wonderful host!
    I had a flying visit with at Dodo Homestay but wish I had more time! He very kindly came to collect me at 4am when the overnight bus came in from Toraja which I couldn’t have been more grateful about. As a solo traveller and arriving in the dark in a new place it was so reasurring to have him there. Dodo has a lovely home with aircon in the bedroom. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are okay and organise trips. Like I said I wish I had more time to do trips as I know they would have been fantastic. His English is great as well! Defo stay with him!

    A Day Trip to Rammang Rammang with Mr Burhanuddin as Guide
    My wife and I did a day trip from Makassar to Rammang Rammang village with Mr. Burhanuddin (+62 813 4251 3328). It was a fun experience: the 3ish km boat ride to get there combined with the lack of road access give one the impression that the place is fairly isolated (we were there on a Friday). A scenic mix of rice paddies and Buginese as well as Makasarese traditional houses set against the backdrop of karst mountains. Highly recommended a visit as well as Mr. Burhanuddin’s guiding services!

    Perfect for a one day trip
    This is a really beautiful place to visit. Ideal for a one day trip. We had just one day between flights and it was a perfect solution. Although it was rainy in Makasar The weather was just fine in the village. You can spend there around 2 hours walking between rice fields and enjoying the views. I must recommend our guide Alex who we also found in one of the comments below. He speaks English and knows the area very well. Also he did the tour for two of us with his car. We paid 700k for the trip plus entrance fees. That also includes pick up / drop off from a hotel. You can contact him on WhatsApp: +62 813 4431 7277

Rammang-Rammang Karst 2 days exclusion

This is a popular destination for people stop over at Makassar.
We started our trip at Rantepeo( Toraja) , it took around 5 hours drive to our first destination: Leang Surukang

Leang Surukang are caves by the field, it’s a bit difficult to find and seems abandoned for a while . Still , it’s interesting cause no tourists at all , you can easily take a lot of amazing photos.

After Leang Surukang, it took another 1.5 hours drive to Rammang2 .

From Rammang2 port, there’s small boat transfer us to the village ( 250,000 rp return per boat, not per head , it can be 200,000 rp per boat as far as I know)

There’re few guest houses around the port before the boat ride, but we chose to stay in the Berua village to catch both sunset and sunrise.

Boat trip is short ( 10 mins ) , but the jungle-like scene are good .
We stayed at KAMPUNG BERUA( BERUA VILLAGE) for one night. Accommodations in the village are limited and beyond basic.
The first one we didn’t choose was 250K per room with breakfast, shared toilets, tiny tiny room .
We stayed at an open space of a warung at the end of this village ( 100k per person included dinner and breakfast) . Even though it’s basic , just like camping in the wild , The host is such a warm and hospitable lady who made our stay memorable. She cooked us fish, served us tea/ coffee, and prepared mosquito net and carpet, fan for us to make sure we sleep well.

Alex( our guide and driver) took us to morning walk in the village, the view was spectacular and unique. We visited 2 caves , remember to bring a head lamp with you . ( entrance fee: 5,000 rp per head ) , we saw apes in the rice fields and heard many birds singing in the morning.

We left Rammang2 and took 0.5 hour drive to Leang- Leang ( entrance: 15,000 per head) . It’s more like a park with educational and research purposes. You can see the ancient hand prints in the caves.

Here’s the information of our itinerary:

Major Destination:
1.Rammang-Rammang Karst
2.Leang-Leang
(Included: stone forest)
3. Leang Surukang
( we didn’t go to the waterfall as we’ve already visited a lot of waterfalls before and the entrance fee is ridiculously high for foreigners 150k)

Expenses:
Boat Tour Rammang-Rammang ( 250k return)
Entrance Fee ( Rammang 15,000+ cave 5000 + Leang2 15,000)
Homestay 100K/per head

For those who’s travelling to Makassar , We highly recommend Alex . He is from Makassar , speaks fluent English, knows the local places very well , with his professional advice and experiences, we learned a lot about local culture.

Nice boat ride and village. However, the first thing one notices and which is present during the whole visit is garbage. Garbage is everywhere: in the water, in the fields… If there is a wish to get visitors, then at least an effort must be made to clean the place up, and keep it that way. The current state of the village is a pity.

About 2 hours drive from Makassar city.
A village / valley surrounded by limestone mountain. To visit ,must take a boat ride costing idr200k ( max about 6 adults per boat ) On the way , will pass thru' a passageway covered by " unique limestone formation " Activities there are mainly paddy farming and veggie . There is also a " flat field of limestone " A lodge available with a cafe , if you need to stay overnight. Strictly for nature lovers.
