Rante Karassik

Rante Karassik

March 07, 2013 / by / 1 Comment

The site of Rante Karassik is a ceremonial ground on a sloping hill just outside Rantepao including several big megaliths. This site is actually a part of the Buntu Pune traditional settlement. Until today, the Buntu Pune people still use the ground for certain ceremonies, in particular those connected with death. Since Rante Karassik is situated quite far from the Buntu Pune compound, the two sites appear to be quite separate. Uniting them is no longer possible, since recent development has resulted in a dense population of the area in between. Entry fee: free!

How to get there?

The easiest way is to jump on an ojek or sitor in town. It’s located just outside of town.
