Ban Lung is nestled in the highlands of the Ratanakiri province, what better place for your Cambodia adventure? It is high enough for the nights to feel colder compared to the rest of the country. This remote North Eastern region is like another planet compared with the rest of Cambodia – dusty red roads carve through the landscape in summer, while in the wetter months the area becomes lush and green. The area is rich in minerals, boasting deposits of gold and precious stones. Although the province is remote, it has a lot to offer the Cambodia adventure enthusiasts and the eco-tourist seeking a different travel experience.
One of the main new discoveries in the area, are the ‘Northern yellow-cheeked Gibbons’, which you can see on a 2 day gibbon experience with ‘Gibbon Spotting Cambodia’.
Enjoy a Cambodia adventure in Sen Monorom, which lies in the Mondulkiri province. This is the largest and most sparsely populated region in Cambodia. The area is full of natural beauty, with forested mountains, powerful waterfalls and lush green rolling hills. The town is the perfect base camp for Cambodia adventure seekers, wanting to explore the surrounding areas. It is a quiet town nestled in the hills and is a new centre for eco tourism, which at present is very undeveloped making you feel that you are totally off the tourist trail. The main project that runs in the area is that of the ‘Elephant Valley Project’, which is well worth visiting and seeing the Cambodian elephant up close. We also offer an incredible experience to BBQ with a local Phnong guide Hong, who was Gordon Ramsays guide in the province. Watch it here.
Kratie is a delightful town with a very relaxed atmosphere situated on the mighty Mekong River. The town is the natural place to break the journey when travelling further north. Cambodia adventure tourists are rewarded with a burning red sunset that descends into the picturesque sand bars, that lay opposite the river front. Kratie is more of a stopping point than a main destination. However, the opening of a boutique hotel on Koh Trong Island opposite the mainland, has allowed tourists to get a wonderful glimpse of local life.
And no visit is complete without a boat trip to see the rare Irrawaddy dolphins that make their home a short way up the river.
Stung Treng is a small provincial town situated on the Mekong River in North-eastern Cambodia. The town itself is undeveloped and retains a distinctly Khmer Character. There is little to see in Stung Treng itself but the surrounding countryside makes for spectacular Cambodia adventure.
