Do

Trekking in the national park. The cloud forests and the highlands offer stunning scenery, albeit the undulating terrain can be tough (especially after rainfall), and for a lot of the treks are guide is required. It should be noted that despite the fact that Lore Lindu is almost bang on the equator, nights can be surprisingly cold (8' degrees celsius is not uncommon), so bringing a sleeping bag is highly recommendable. The beautiful valleys offer easier hiking among ricefields, with the beautiful view of the surrounding, highly forested mountains. Bada valley is a must-see for the megalights here.
