through Bada Valley (June 1994)

Return to my mountaineering-trekking webpage

 

These are some photos of a hiking trip I made to Sulawesi in June 1994, following a trip to Irian Jaya (now Papua). I first flew from Ujung Pandang (now renamed Makassar) to Palu on the central west coast of Sulawesi, where I took a bus to Gimpu. From Gimpu, I trekked south to the Bada valley (famous for its megaliths) and from there further south to the main road near Masamba, north of Palopo.
