championship-on-climbing-to-palm-trees Independence Day in Indonesia is on August, 17th. This day is celebrated by traditional folk festivals, fireworks and various competitions. Climbing palm trunk – this is the hardest competition, which is attended by a team of 4 people.To climb on absolutely smooth, oiled trunk is an uneasy problem. Some teams form a sort of ladder, clambering on each other’s shoulders. At the top of the trunk there are prizes – from towels, clothes and other practical trifles to mountain bicycles and cash certificates. The above a trunk, the more expensively a prize – such is a principle. If any team gets to the top too fast, the organizers pour water over the participants, so that they had to prove their skills again.
