Seima Protected 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.
The final frontier as far as Mondulkiri goes, this village in the far north of the province is a strategic place on the overland route between Sen Monorom and Ratanakiri Province. This is traditionally where the road from Sen Monorom ended and the cattle track to Lumphat (in Ratanankiri) began.
