Fishing town at the end of Lake Poso
At the far end of Lake Poso is Tentana, a sleepy fishing town with a characteristic covered wooden bridge. Here the lake empties in the Poso River, and it does so through a series of eel traps that provide the bulk of the economic activity for the town, or so it seems. Eel is also on the menu in the few warungs around town, but the variety we had wasn’t particularly tasteful.
Tentana is a sort of a cross roads, from where the western part of Sulawesi and its nature reserves can be reached, as well as nearby waterfalls. But in Tentana itself there is nothing to do, especially if one arrives on a Sunday, in this deeply religious – Christian – area.
