Being a wild, low population density area of Cambodia, Mondulkiri is spotted with rolling hills, jungle forests, towering waterfalls, and valleys. Visiting this region, you can see some of the most rare and endangered wildlife of this country such as water buffalo, leopards and elephants. The Bunong minority group occupies almost half of Mondulkiri’s population, who hunt to meet the demands of their food supply. If you want to visit the traditional villages and interact with elephants in their natural habitat, it is such a fantastic region. The pleasant climate, spectacular landscapes and stunning wildlife-watching opportunities make it an ideal area for trekking and hiking experiences.
Situated in Bokor National Park, Popokvil Waterfall is a spectacular two-tiered waterfall, which looks especially magnificent during the month of rainy season. Even though the outside of the surrounding rainforest has been somewhat deformed by the setting up of an enormous casino on the hill top, the area is still quite lovely. An expression meaning ‘swirling clouds’, maybe about the ever-present fog that surrounds it, is the origin of the name of the waterfall. It is such an ideal destination, where you can stop for a refreshing swim and, even more fortunately, you will have a close look into the threatened animals existing in the area including the pig-tailed macaque and the Malayan sun bear.

Located about 600 km from Phnom Penh, Ratanakiri, which is a province with low population density is really famous for its stunning natural beauty and abundance of natural resources. An incredible range consisting of undulating hills and mountains, a level plateau, milestone lowlands, cirque lakes, rivers and towering waterfalls are formed by the physical and environmental characteristic of the province. Forest cover varies from one area to another, from the dense impassable forest in the northern reaches, which are still rich in wildlife, to the drier and less crowded forest, seen in the southwest area. Therefore, Ratanakiri province provides travelers with excellent opportunities for eco-tourism in Cambodia.
