Nias also has a tradition known as "Fahombo o Hombo" or Traditional of Jumping Stone (Lompat Batu). Since the age of 10, a boy n Nias island is ready to take turn doing "Fahombo" Jump Stone for more than 2 meters high. If they can do it, they will be considered as an adult who can join military and get married. This even (Stone Jumping) can be seen in Bawo Mataluo or Bawomataluo Village, South Nias regency
Stone-jumping, in their foreign language called 'Hombo Batu', now became one of tourism attraction to the village. formerly it was a trial to a man who want to join the army. If they can jump through this 2-metres-stacked-stone, then they will have a pride as a men and also pass the test to join the army in order to defend their villages.
