    Pamona Cave, Tentena

    Pamona cave is located in Tentena city and this place is famous by the place to keep the death body from Pamona tribe at ancient time. This cave is settled in the edge of Poso Lake, 63 Km from Poso and it can be reach by using four-wheel drive or two-wheel drive vehicles. Just because it located in the edge or Poso Lake, but the water from the lake cannot be flowing into the cave.

    For those who want to explore the cave will be better to bring personal equipment like flashlight, because there is no rented equipment available at the place. Pamona cave is rarely visited by tourists; local people believe that this place is too haunted to be visited; this makes the cave still natural and genuine. Those who visit the cave are mostly coming from the researchers.

    Pamona cave has 200 meter long and 80 meter deep, with steep and curve steps. There are 12 rooms inside the cave. The first room is still bright and the sunlight still coming from the crack of the roof, but the deeper the steps, the more darkly the situation, and the humidity is become thicker.

    At ancient time, the cave was used as the cemetery from Poso people who live around the hills. The Pamona descendants used to keep the death body of the family into the coffin and place it into the cave. Hence, no wonder that today we can find the skull and skeleton in the middle of the exploration into the cave.
