Welcome to Bawomataluo

Stone jumping was once a form of war training; the jumpers had to leap over a 1.8m-high stone wall, traditionally topped with pointed sticks. These days the sticks are left off – and the motivation is financial (200,000Rp per jump outside ceremonial occasions). There are also cultural displays of war dances, traditionally performed by young, single males.

From Bawomataluo, you can see the rooftops of nearby Orihili. A stone staircase and a trail lead downhill to the village.
