Buffalo Market @ Pasar Bolu (Tana Toraja)

It is interesting to visit theme market. For example, bird market in Yogya, camel market in Rajasthan, fish market in Tokyo, and just now we were at the buffalo market in Pasar Bolu, 3KM from Rantepao.

We arrived at 8am before more buffalos coming to town. By 9am, the lanes were jammed pack with buffalo.

Buffalo could cost from IRD 20 million to 250 million (record?). The ‘precious’ one are those albino buffalo with three colours, gigantic with impressive horns.
