Welcome to Bawomataluo
Perched on a hill about 400m above sea level, Bawomataluo (Sun Hill) is the most famous, and the most accessible, of the southern villages on Pulau Nias. It is also the setting for lompat batu (stone jumping). The final approach is up 88 steep stone steps flanked by stone dragons, and houses are arranged along two main stone-paved avenues. Bawomataluo is well worth exploring, but be prepared for eager knick-knack sellers.
