Bantimurung – Bulusaraung National Park

An immense wild kingdom of butterflies, rushing waterfalls and limestone mountain scenery is just a short ride from downtown Ujung Pandang. This national park, 50 kilometers (31 miles) to the north, comprises thousands of hectares of karst landscapes and low-lying and montane forests. The multilevel Bantimurung Waterfall is a highlight, plummeting 15 meters (49 feet) into a clear, cool pool where you can dip your feet or brave a natural shower. British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace was astounded by the sheer variety of butterflies during his 19th-century explorations of the area. And at the on-site butterfly museum, visitors can see incredible specimens and learn about ongoing conservation efforts.
