Archaeological Wonders of Rammang-Rammang

Rammang-Rammang Village located in the north of Makassar city covers a vast 43,750 hectares, covering the Karst formations of Maros and Pangkep regencies in Sulawesi. The Maros Pangkep Karst is the second largest Karst mountain in the world after those found in Yunnan, South China. The Karst of Maros Pangkep has been recognized as UNESCO world heritage site since 2001.

The area not only presents a unique landscape, but also hides archaeological findings in prehistoric caves dating back thousands of years. Within an hours’ drive, we take guests to Rammang-Rammang Village where they enter a small jetty and board a traditional canoe to paddle along the Puteh River. Surrounded by this spectacular Karst landscape, guests enjoy the cooling breeze of the countryside and after a short paddle among the beautiful scenery, embark on a soft trek to visit Passaung cave with its prehistoric drawings.
