To reach Banlung by land we may take almost whole day to travel by bus. But this is the only way to travel by at the moment as we don’t have flight. Banlung is the most beautiful part of Cambodia, Banlung – Ratanakiri. In this part province are living mostly minority tribes. About 80% Of the people who are living here are not Khmer-Cambodian but Lao, Tampuan, Jorai, Chinese, Vietnamese or Kreung.

In Ratanakiri we will be joined by a local guide who will show us the most beautiful places of Ratanakiri. By car and by foot we will explore the beautiful untouched nature.

We will spend the night in wooden cottages in the middle of the forest.

Together with a local guide we will visit today several small villages and hill tribes. By 4-wheel drive and seated on an elephant we will explore the beautiful untouched nature. Crossing the jungle we will definitely meet some nomadic tribes. There are more then 20 of these nomadic tribes, by Cambodian people known as: Khmer Loeu, or highlanders, each with there own language and culture. Besides these tribes we will also visit some spectacular waterfalls.

The Sean Lae (7-steps) Waterfall, which we will visit next, has only been discovered recently and is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Cambodia.

Before we will leave to Stung Treng we will first visit a local market. At this colorful market you can find al your required souvenirs of Ratanakiri. In the afternoon we will arrive in Stung Treng. After checking in at the hotel you will have enough free time to explore this lovely village, situated at the Sekong River. Located only 40 kilometers from Laos and hardly visited by tourists, this city still has its own authentic atmosphere.

Overnight in Stung Treng

Day 6: Stung Treng  – Phteah Pkoh Village (B, L, D)

After breakfast we will depart to Kampong Cham either by boat or bus. Hopefully there will be enough water for a boat trip because traveling on the Mekong River is a great experience. At arrival in Kampong Cham we will continue the tour by minibus with a visit to Wat Nokor.

This temple was built in the 13th century with stones out of sand and still remains in a good condition. At Phnom Proh you have the opportunity to feed some monkeys. Late in the afternoon we will head to Phteah Kpoh, a small village surrounded by rice fields where tourists are a rarity. Dinner and overnight stay will be at a local family.

Overnight in Phteah Pkoh Village

Day 7: Phteah Pkoh Village (B, L, D)

The local village people are not used to foreigners riding around on an oxcart. They will be very surprised and greet you with a big smile and wave you goodbye. Riding around through rice fields and some small villages we will also visit a local school. As the children are very poor they will certainly appreciate small gifts like a pencil or any kind of school supplies. After saying goodbye to local villagers we will go to Tek Chaa. At the lake we will have lunch in small bamboo cottages. It is even possible to take a ride on one of the, probably only two in Cambodia, water bikes. An adventures ride on a motorbike through banana fields will bring us to the cold water springs.

Consider yourself lucky because this beautiful area is not mentioned in any guidebook at all. In this oases look a like surrounding you can enjoy the crystal clear water and the experience of walking around through the jungle. On route to Phnom Penh we will take a break at Skun. This village is famous because of their specialty: spiders! Fried or cooked with some salt or herbs it is the favorite snack of the local people. Especially the legs are supposed to taste very good.

Day 8: Phteah Pkoh Village – Siem Reap (B, L)

Today we are leaving out of the area of adventure for an amazing heritage of Cambodia in Siem Reap province.

On the first day arrival in Siem Reap town, you will have your own leisure time. You can manage your own trip by rent a bike and make your own tour for a small city tour or visit local markets. But of course if you are in the mood for a relaxed day at the swimming pool, well, the choice is yours.

Overnight in Siem Reap

Day 9: Siem Reap (B)

One of the highlights of this tour is of course a visit to Angkor, the largest temple complex in the world. With the temples of Angkor, Cambodia has something to offer that none of its neighbours can rival.

To visit all temples will take us a week. Unfortunately we don’t have that much time so we will visit with an experienced guide only the major and most impressive temples like Angkor Thom, Baphoun, Bayon, Elephant Terrace and of course the most famous one, Angkor Wat. You will be surprised by the unmatched architecture of these temples. This temple complex was discovered by the Frenchman Henri Mouhout in 1860 and was totally overwhelmed by the impressive jungle. Most temples are still in the same condition as when they were discovered in 1860. You can still feel the mysterious atmosphere as you probably witnessed in the movie Tombraider, which was partly filmed at this location. We will make this Angkor tour not with luxury touring cars but in Cambodian style, by TukTuk.
