I should say that the culture of the tribe in Tana Toraja is really amazing. And that includes the outstanding story and value on their burial sites.

I was amazed that this settlement is not inscribed yet.

It is a 7 hrs trip by night bus from Makassar, South Sulawesi (nearest airport), but really worth it.

Highly recommended and a must.
