Sumba Island

INTRODUCTION

Sumba, one of the less-developed islands in Indonesia, it is an island with its rugged savannah and low limestone hills knitted together with more maize and cassava than rice, physically it looks nothing like Indonesia’s volcanic islands to the north. Sumba is known as the Texas of Indonesia

Throw in outstanding handspun, naturally dyed ikat, and the annual Pasola festival – where bareback horsemen ritualize old tribal conflicts as they battle one another with hand-carved spears – and it’s easy to see that Sumba runs deep.

Sumba’s extensive grasslands make it one of Indonesia’s leading horse-breeding islands. Horses still serve as a mode of transport in the regions, they remain a symbol of wealth and status, and they can still win a bride.

Waingapu, the capital, is well known for producing the finest ikat fabric in Indonesia. A little further out at Rende and Melolo sit stone tombs with bizarre carvings, and in other villages on the east coast, you’ll find quality weaving, traditional structures and deserted beaches.

The main town in the west is Waikabubak, where characteristic houses with thatched roofs soar to an apex over 15m above the ground.

Activities

Nature

Landscape in Sumba is rather hilly. There are no volcanoes, extremely dry – not harmonious green but still beautiful.

Tribal Villages

The Sumbanese traditional house (Sumbanese uma mbatangu, “peaked house”) refers to the traditional vernacular house of the Sumba people from the island of Sumba, Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia. Sumbanese house is characterized with its high-pitched central peak in its roof and strong connection with the spirits or marapu.

Traditional Horse Racing

Horse race is a traditional sport in East Sumba and most people in Sumba and from surrounding islands always wait for the annual horse race festival, Pasola.
