Paddy fields @ Tana Toraja
With limited travelled due to expected rain, we only visited part of Tana Toraja country side (outside of Rantepao town).
There are more impressive panorama view of terrace paddy fields in the area.
Some of the fields are ready for harvest. We were lucky to visit on the village where the community is preparing for the harvest festival.
Rice is the main staple in Indonesia. I have been eating fried rice continuously the last few days. In fact, I am having fried rice right now while I am writing this post in a restaurant.
The lady was plucking the Morning Glory (‘Kangkung’) leaves for dinner. I love stir fried kangkung with shrimp paste, cheap and appetizing.
The greenery is very soothing to the eyes.
One of the unique backdrop of the paddy fields in Toraja are the rice barns.
You can also see graves and churches at certain places.
Many tourists enjoyed trekking through the villages and paddy fields.
I don’t have 1 month vacation in Toraja, so we ride a bike to have a quick sampling of the outskirts.
