Mamasa Tourism Potential to be Optimized

Written By Stepanus W B on Selasa, 22 Februari 2011 | 17.46

MamasaOnline - Tourism potential in Mamasa district, West Sulawesi province, will be optimized to support regional revenue, Mamasa district head Obed Negodepparinding has said.

"Mamuju as a tourist destination in West Sulawesi has a major advancement that must be supported by all parties here," Obed Negodepparinding said here on Monday.

With Mamasa district chosen as a regional tourism development in West Sulawesi this year, Obed said intensive promotion would be made both at national and international levels.

"We are going to intensively promote the tourism potential in the district in a bid to attract as many domestic and foreign tourists as possible," Obed said.

Therefore he hoped the government would provide financial assistance for the development of supporting infrastructure facilities in Mamuju.

"With the financial assistance from central and provincial governments we can build tourism supporting infrastructures such as road access to the tourists areas," he added.

Mamasa district has a number of tourist attractions such as Mamasa Valley which is also referred to as West Tana Toraja and is known for its traditional ceremonies and local handicrafts.

He said the Mamasa Valley could be best explored on foot by the visitors to enjoy the scenery and views at a slow pace.

The surrounding countryside is nothing short of idyllic and if the visitors are planning to travel any distance, it makes sense to hire a motor cycle or car to enjoy the view of Mamasa Valley and the attractions of the Gunung Mambulilin mountain peak, the hot springs at Kole, village life in Loko, the cascading waterfall of Mambulilin Sarambu, and the jungle walks around Taupe.

"No wonder tourism in Mamasa has a great potential to increase the regional revenue to raise the local people's welfare," Obed said.
