Jalan Pattimura RT 005 RW 002, Waikabubak Sumba Barat
The village of Tarung and its neighbor Waitabar are two of the most popular villages in Sumba, and for good reason. The village is located just outside of Waikabubak so it cost a minimum amount of effort to get there. Because it is not clear where one village end and where the other one start so it looks like one big village. The people are very nice and some of them speak English due to the popularity of this village amongst tourists. What makes this village special is that some houses serve its purpose for other occasions than for shelter. Some offer home to special items of the tradition and Marapu beliefs. Besides the welcoming feeling and that the villages are actually beautiful, if you want you can witness a traditional Sumbanese dance in traditional outfit which gives this experience great satisfaction.
