Places in Mondulkiri Province
Around Sen Monorom
In addition to the waterfalls listed below, look out for a newly accessible Kbal Phei waterfall, in the jungle some 20km northwest of town. Follow the signs to Angkor Forest Guesthouse and keep going on the new road (which had not quite yet been completed at the time of writing).
Seima Protection Forest
The 3000-sq-km Seima Protected Forest may host the country’s greatest treasure trove of mammalian wildlife. Besides unprecedented numbers of black-shanked doucs and yellow-cheeked crested gibbons, an estimated 150 wild elephants – accounting for more than half of the total population in Cambodia – roam the park, along with bears and seven species of cat.
