About 20 years ago, Tanjung Karang beach is only known as a place for the fishermen to rest after the weary sea. But now, Tanjung Karang beach has turned into a favourite attraction for residents of Palu and surrounding areas.

Tanjung Karang beach has a unique landscape. On one side, it is a sloping beach with white sand in shallow water. On the other side, there are high cliffs with deep sea. These have become a magnet for divers and snorkelling enthusiasts as you do not need to dive to the bottom or swim to the middle of the sea. Not necessary to use boat either, just walked three meters from the beach, snorkelling lovers would be able to see the natural coral reefs.

The Bada Valley is world famous for its prehistoric relics from an ancient megalithic culture. Dozens of finely carved megaliths dating between 1,000 – 5,000 years old are scattered across the valley. A mysterious, yet magnificent testament to the skill and genius of a civilization that we know absolutely nothing about. Nobody really knows how old the megaliths are, who made them or why they’re there.

The statues of Bada Valley are carved in human or animal form: owl, monkey or buffalo; all with the similar and rather abstract style of being somewhat oval with large, round faces. The largest statue stands 4.5 meters tall and 1.3 meters thick. Sources indicate that they show remarkable resemblance to the stone statues of Easter Island, Cheju Island in Korea, and the Olmec Statues in Mexico.

Its waters are deep blue and aquamarine, and it is one of the clearest lakes in the world. Silver and yellow eels criss-cross the lake together with two endemic species of fish. The centre of the lake is crystal blue, outlined by a shade of green and bordered with soft white and golden sands. Rolling hills surround this enchanting lake, covered with stretches of bright, green rice fields, fragrant clove trees and tropical forests.

Waterfall Saluopa is one of the interesting sights in the province of Central Sulawesi. The waterfall is composed of 12 levels. From one level to the next level there is a staircase of stone, making it easier for visitors to get to the bottom of the waterfall. 


Around the falls there is also a tropical forest with a diverse fauna that live in it. You will hear the sounds of animals and birds with a melodious singing while passing through the forest.


The water from the mountain is so clear that the rocks in the water can be seen clearly. Interestingly, the mossy rocks are not slippery, visitors can easily rise to the top level through the stones. It is a must visit place if you are in the vicinity of the area.
