Village with many old, traditional houses and a fabulous view over the valleys below
High up a ridge, overlooking rice-paddied valleys on both sides, is Loko, a village with a number of old traditional houses. Quite a few have been decorated long time ago, with now-fading paintings of bulls, cocks and several geometrical patterns. All around the village, people were working the rice paddies, never mind the rain that by now was falling in buckets.
It is good to see that some of the houses were being repaired, demonstrating the commitment people still have towards their cultural heritage. Not so different from other settlements around Mamasa, like Taupe, Tusan and Tondok Bakaru.
