Puteh River canoeing experience: Feel the magical connection that binds man and nature in this tour of the Indonesian countryside, far from the hustle and bustle of the city of Makassar. Experience a canoe paddle along the unforgettable Puteh River and mingle and dine with the local folks of small provincial villages. Discover how there are places on Earth that seem untouched by the passing of time.
The first stop is the hamlet of Ramang-Ramang, where villagers will welcome you with broad smiles of genuine warmth and hospitality. Once acquainted with the locals, hop onto a traditional canoe and paddle off down the Puteh River. As you glide down the stream, admire the impressive karst ‘towers’ and limestone cliffs that flank the river throughout its course.
Bring your canoe to the shores of Berua, where you will be invited to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the town to contemplate the quaint comings and goings of the villagers. Feel the joy of seeing a simpler way of life in action and even get a chance to form a part of it: a local family will invite you to a hearty traditional meal at their very own home.
After this welcoming experience, the final experience part of this adventurous odyssey: a light trek through the breathtaking limestone park. Your tour definitely won’t be lacking excitement.
