Travelling is one of my passions. I love to see beautiful landscapes, and experience new cultures. During my time to Barru, I felt like I was able to truly reconnect with nature through the hidden wonders of the tropical jungles and the stunning allure of the Celebes Canyon, which is also referred to as Ule River.
On this particular trip, I arrived pretty early in the morning and already the sun was shining brilliantly in the sky. As I got closer to Celebes Canyon, shimmering flashes of white and blue caught my eye in between the foliage. Just as I thought I had a sense for how beautiful it is, that last tree line passed out of view and the full scale and majesty of Celebes Canyon was right in front of me. It gets me every time.
There are many small waterfalls that flow into the Ule River. Surrounded by a lush forest and rice terraces, it can even be spotted from a distance. From Libureng Village, you will have to walk for about 1.5km through a beautiful Panoramic landscape with soft gray rocks, terraced rice fields, and farmers plowing the land with their water buffalos to get to the waterfall.
