The center of the Ngada culture is Bajawa. Ngada is a people who live according to age-old rules in which ancestral worship plays an important role. In this culture, the caste system is also still a life course followed. Together with a local guide you will discover the systems of the traditional villages today and walk the vast green environment in which the villages are sometimes hidden. The car takes you to the starting point of the walk. Here you start a walk (soft hike) of 11 km to a traditional village called Beleragi. The walk is mainly down hill and brings you closer to nature. Along the way you will pass bamboo forests (experience the natural cooling) and agricultural fields. In this area you also see many wild Kemeri nuts and wild sereh. The village consists of two parallel rows of 16 houses and is built uphill; just like the other traditional villages in this area. For the Belaragi population, visitors from abroad are guests, not tourists. That is why guests are traditionally welcomed with a ceremony called ti'Ikaebunusi, it means 'giving food to the ancestors'. A bamboo flute 'suling' concert completes the visit.
You will spend the night in one of the houses as a family guest. The overnight stay is easy these villages do not have hot or running water. The toilet is a squat toilet, with a scoop of water you continue and often you shower in the same room with a water scoop (gayung) from a water basin. It is a special experience drawn by simplicity. Again your sarong will offer a solution, the evenings and nights are fresh at this height, crawl into your sarong and keep it nice and warm.
