Londa Cave : Londa Cave is the best known burial cave in Tana Toraja. It has a number of newer tau tau effigies at its entrance and is nested in a narrow wooded valley. Personally I did not like it as much as Tampangallo Cave, due to Londa's commercialization and narrow caverns.

Lake Tempe : Lake Tempe used to be home to the largest bird population in Indonesia. However a recent drought caused a change in bird migration patterns, leaving Lake Tempe virtually deserted of the previously so numerous birds. So if you're interested in wildlife, don't waste your time here... However, we were able to visit a floating village of local fishermen which gave us great insights into their daily lives.
