Toraja Funerals – Life, Death and Mummies in Indonesia

Posted By TeamHazardRides 1980 days ago on Travel

http://www.teamhazardridesagain.com - Our tour of the Toraja region on the island of Sulawesi was intense, and surprising. There's market day, where animals are sold for sacrifice. There are graves carved into giant stones and cliff-sides and marked with dolls, photos and relics. And baby graves that sound so depressing, but are touching, beautiful places. We got to attend one day of an elaborate four day funeral, with the families and friends of the deceased. We even got to see a mummified couple. She'd been dead five years, him five months, but they were buried at the same time.

Let us take you on this amazing journey.
