Rows cluster rock cliffs towering into the sky and stretching up to 43,750 hectares. Synergy with the blue sky contrasting with the green vegetation that is still natural and shaded by a thin mist, making the atmosphere was quiet, quiet, but romantic and mystical impressed. Yup!

It is Located in the village hamlets salengrang ramang-ramang, Maros regency, South Sulawesi. Karst Maros area can be reached by land transportation from the city of Makassar approximately 1.5 hours. Then to go into the forest of stone, we must use a local fishing boat to pass through the mangrove forest that blends with palm and pandanus trees that grow wild in the left-right path that we've been through. Occasionally we passed the rocky cliffs are home to Salalah habitat of one type of eagle. But what makes me more amazed again as it passes through a tunnel of huge chunks of rock that formed naturally. A ride on this boat takes approximately half an hour.
