Wow!! We rented a motorbike from our hotel and headed up towards Batutumonga. The route we took has us climbing upwards through the rice paddies. We knew there was supposed to be a lovely panorama at the top, but WOW!!! We were blown away. Just past Batutumonga, you can also find the graves in the giant stone at Loko'mata. I recommend checking them out. We had spent the day before on a tour of different gravesites in the region, and so on this day we weren't really looking for any specific gravesites. However, Loko'mata is very unique and worth a quick visit. We took another route down to Rantepao from Batutumonga, but I would recommend seeking out the rice paddy route for the way up. The scenery just builds and builds until you are finally at the top. We must have stopped ten times to take photos on the way up!
