    Bada Valley, Easter Island & Göbekli Tepe: Links Between Indonesia, Polynesia and Turkey


    Tobapos -- Discovered in 1908, the Bada Valley megaliths, hidden in Central Sulawesi, are statues scattered all over an area next to Lore Lindu National Park. Those megalithic statues, almost unknown and isolated from the rest of the world, are made in different shapes and sizes, some are standing, others are lying on the ground, which adds to the mystery around them.

    Located 15km South of Lore Lindu National Park, Bada Valley and its statues are crossed by Sungai Lariang, the river watering countless rice fields and about a dozen villages in the area. Because of  their remoteness, only a few archeologists and determined travelers dare the adventure every year. Because of its mountainous terrain and the quasi-absence of roads, the area, as beautiful and savage as it might be, is a true puzzle for those who wish to venture there.

    Surprisingly, or not, the Bada Valley megaliths are not only resembling Easter Island’s Moai (and Göbekli Tepe, Turkey ones, especially how the hands are positioned at the bottom of statues), but are also completely isolated from the rest of the world. Indonesians from outside of the area barely know about the statues. Moreover, it will take you, take us (we will soon open to the public our first expedition there), 5 to 6h of road at 25km/h (15mph) from the closest working domestic airport. (more)
