Bada Valley Roadtrip

Bada Valley, Central Sulawesi

Lore Lindu National Park holds more than 200.000 hectares of nature in the heart of Sulawesi on the Wallace line. The park covers three valleys, namely Bada, Besoa, and Napu. 

Lore Lindu is named after the Lore plateau and Lake Lindu. In addition to Sulawesi’s illustrious flora and fauna, the three valleys also store remnants of a stunning megalithic civilization. Large stone sculptures, kalamba (stone jars), and various menhir stones are scattered throughout the valleys. 

Experts still try to find answers to who made these stones, their function, and the exact age of the megalith civilization in Lore Lindu.

SpektakelPlesir! offers an exploration into this megalith cultural heritage. Be a direct witness and speculate on how and why this worldwide unicum of different types of megaliths were gathered into one space.
