Sengkang and Bira - 4 days

Explore the Southern region of Sulawesi with this trip. Starting in Sengkang with a canoeing trip over the Tempe Lake and then bringing you to Bira via the Kajang area where members of the Kajang tribe still live according to traditional standards. Then off to the coastal village of Bira where you are snorkling over the coral reefs near Liukang Island.

Day 1:    Transfer to Sengkang, Tempe Lake boat tour.
 
 

After being brought to your hotel in Sengkang and you have checked in to your hotel in Sengkang, you will be brought to the starting point of your canoeing trip on the Tempe Lake.
The small Walennea River brings you to this lake that covers an area of at least 1.000 ha in the dry season and expands to around 35.000 ha during the wet season when all surrounding areas are flooded. On the lake you can observe the local fishermen catch fish in different ways: using nets, fishing roads and bamboo fences.

Around 9 am, our local guide will pick you up at the hotel. You walk to the sea where your boat is waiting for a transfer to Liukang Island or Ara Island (depends on the weather).

We really enjoyed the great exploration we had in Sulawesi. Especially after visiting Toraja, which was quite active we had a nice and relaxing stay discovering the underwater world near Bira. A recommended place to have a relaxing end to your long journey over Sulawesi.
