- Tatai River
Lonely Planet review for Tatai Waterfall
When driving east from Krong Koh Kong along NH48, the first bridge you come to - after about 20km - spans the Tatai River (Stung Tatai). Set in a lushly forested gorge a bit upstream from the bridge, Tatai Waterfall is a thundering set of rapids in the wet season, plunging over a 4m rock shelf. In the dry season, when water levels drop, you can walk across much of the ledge and take a dip in the gently-flowing river.
The water is fairly pure, as it comes down from the high Cardamoms, where there are very few human settlements.To get to the falls from Krong Koh Kong, you can either take a moto (the turn-off from NH48 is a couple of kilometres west of the Tatai River bridge) or a gorgeous motorboat ride via Peam Krasaop Wildlife Sanctuary (USaround US$60, one hour). Boats can also be hired at the Rainbow Lodge.
