The Lost Civilization of INDONESIA


Explore the mysterious statues and beautifully carved stone works at the plateaus of Sulawesi. No one knows who built them. They are built by the Lost Civilization. 

No written report, no significant legends told. Yet they are scattered in three different valleys. Some are recorded on the government lists but probably still much more are hidden in the highland rainforest jungles. Explore the Off the Beaten Path Indonesia on Sulawesi Island.


The program leads you to the valleys to have closer look on these mysterious carved stones and statues. Start from the south with Toraja where the ancient statues of Central Sulawesi seem to have no relation with Toraja monoliths.

End up with Napu Valley far north where the carved stone civilization started its root as shown by simplified figures carved on the stones.
