    There are hundreds sculpture around this national park. But I think the one at Bada Valley was the best one. Located in the open area make us easy to reach it and take picture.

    I went on two excursions with guide Petrus. Spot hornbills and tarsiers. Both times it was great. Petrus is persistent in looking for solutions when things don't work out. Petrus you are a top guide!

    Worth a trip, it takes about 1 hour from Luwuk Airport to Salodik waterfall. It consists of 2 waterfall, the big one on the right and the small one on the left. Must visit if you are in the area.

    I went for humanitarian work and visiting the beach after tsunami was one of the painful experience. I dont know when the Indonesia Gov will start work to restore this tourist venue but looking at Acheh , its long way to go PALU.

    The lake located around 1,5 hour from Poso city. There were some hotels on the lakeside. From our hotel we rent a boat to went around the lake. We stop at the Taman Wisata Bancea. It was a nice spot to swim, play at the beach and take pictures. The beach color here was red to brown.
    Due to bad weather then we must back to our hotel. The wave was big enough. At our hotel beach we swim until late. The water was warm enough although the weather was cold. The color of the beach was white. And the sands really looks like sea sands.
    Very unique lake. This is a must visit when you are in Poso or Tentena.

    I visited this place looking for a nice coral reef and spend some quiet days waiting for my return to home. Sadly I have to leave the place hastily because of the rowdy crowd of youngsters having a good time. Do not get me wrong everybody has been young and wanted to have some crazy fun from time to time, but this activity must not incompatible with those people looking for quiet and calm days.
    About the coral I must say this beach has a several kilometers stretch of coral garden well preserved worthy of being snorkeled and enjoyed (especially between Prince John dive resort and Donggala). Sadly here stop all the good things.

    The list of problems I found were the following:
    - The beach is fully occupied with restaurants, gazebos and cheap accommodations and totally disappeared in hight tide. On the water you will find big agglomerations of people on the shores, crazy banana boats and skipper boats offering snorkeling trips.
    - The accommodation is devoted to allocate big groups local youngsters, this is traduced in days of noisy karaokes, lack of privacy, smelly barbacoas and rubbish everywhere. On the other hand I must say I did not see drugs, alcohol or fightings, so it was a healthy crowd of young people looking for fun.
    All in all, this place maybe worthy to visit if you avoid this place from Thursday to Sunday when all the young people from Palu and nearby area come here to spent he weekend. If you have enough budget, Prince John dive resort will let you avoid the noisy crowds. I will suggest to enjoy the coral reef from Monday to Wednesday and then go somewhere place more quiet (I found it in Pulau Pasoso but this is another story). If you are looking for a nice beach with quiet bungalows you will regret your decision.
    This place is in urgent need of regulation of activities and waste management. I hope the local authorities solve this problem in the near future or all will be lost irreparably.
