Well off the tourist radar until recently, the beautiful island of Sumba has natural and cultural riches to spare. According to anthropologists, Sumbanese culture is unique in the way it has retained its ties to the Neolithic and bronze ages. Burial in megaliths is a practice that endures while techniques of carving and transporting stone also date back to the origins of prehistory. On this journey guests will experience the wonders of this living museum at traditional villages, in hidden valleys and on pristine beaches. The adventure gets underway with visits to the twin villages of Tarung and Waitabar followed by a tour of the remote settlement of Praiijing, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Sumba. Sumba’s natural attributes are as compelling as its anthropological qualities and this splendour is on show in the region of Kodi, which is famous for its pristine beaches where guests will have the chance to kick back and reflect on their unique surroundings.
