I've been to a similar place like this in Guilin, China, on 2006 and I've never thought that there's a place like that in Indonesia until I visited this place. Surrounded by karst, Dusun Berua is a unique village with only 15 family live in their "rumah panggung" (a traditional wooden house with vault on the underside). A lot of people know this place as Desa Rammang-Rammang, but one of the locals told me that it is actually Dusun Berua, Village of Salenrang.
It is not hard to reach this village; take an hour drive from Makassar city toward Maros, until you find a sign for Pabrik Semen Bosowa on your right. You will need to take a u-turn to reach that street, then go straight until you find a bridge. Alternatively, you can also type "Salenrang" on your navigation using Google Maps. There is the wharf of Rammang-Rammang located. You can park your vehicle along the street, and yes, it is safe. You will need to take a boat (IDR150,000 return) from there to reach Dusun Berua for about 20 minutes with a beautiful scenery surround you. Once arrived in Dusun Berua, there are several objects to see: a spring water, an ancient cave, or you can just spending time in the villager's houses while enjoying such a beautiful nature with rice fields, a row of karst, and the local life ambience.
Karst Maros is a very precious natural source and heritage of South Sulawesi, and I really hope that it won't be vanished by exploitation of cement companies nearby.
