20 Pictures Of Sulawesi To Inspire Your Travels

Last August I got the chance to spend a week exploring Sulawesi, one of the largest and most underrated islands in Indonesia, with a few days near Makassar in the south and then Manado in the north.

Sulawesi was one of the most amazing places I’ve been in my travels. The karst mountains, exotic wildlife, big waterfalls, active volcanoes, and ancient artifacts were out of this world. It was one of the highlights of my year, even though I barely scratched the surface of what this island has to offer.

Hopefully these pictures of Sulawesi inspire your travels!

You’ll need a zoom lens to get tarsier pictures like this, because they’re pretty elusive.
