Welcome to Ratenggaro
On the way to Ratenggaro, look out for the thinner, high-peaked roofs of Kampung Paranobaroro through the trees, about 1km inland. The best of these have enormous timber columns intricately carved and cured by an almost perpetually smouldering cooking fire in the centre of the raised bamboo platform. Stone statues decorate the public space. During the day only women and children are in the village. Women are often weaving and are happy to chat. During ceremonial times you may see pig jaws and buffalo horns displayed on the front porch.
