Mondulkiri  Photo Gallery

If you wish to explore rich culture, experience breathtaking scenery, encounter wonderful people, then Mondulkiri is the place for you. Mondulkiri is the largest province of Cambodia but the population is low: about 40,000 people are living here. Located in the north-east of Cambodia , the hilly province of Mondulkiri is nestled against the border with Vietnam northeast of Phnom Penh and is home to several hill tribes like the neighboring Rattanakiri province.Known for its beauty with thickly forested hills and powerful waterfalls, Mondulkiri offers wonderful opportunities for Eco-tourism in Cambodia .

Mondulkiri is a huge province with scenery and a climate quite unlike anywhere else in the country. In the dry season the weather is 23-29 ºC with sunshine; in summer the temperatures

vary between 27 and 31ºC. There are endless grassy hills, rivers and jungle. At an average elevation of 800m, it can get quite chilly at night. Mondulkiri has numerous tourist attractions such as waterfalls, indigenous culture, national parks and elephant trekking.
   Minorities/Hill Tribes of Mondulkiri

Any visit to this province will require basing oneself in Sen Monorom, the tiny provincial capital. There are a few places to stay and eat here, with the Pich Kiri Guesthouse the most popular. There are beautiful views of the surrounding area.

80 percent of the Mondulkiri's population is made up of ten tribal minorities, with the majority if them being Phnong. The remaining 20 percent are Khmer, Chinese and Muslim Cham.

The population lives off the land, planting rice, fruit trees and a variety of vegetables. Others grow strawberries, coffee, rubber and cashew nuts.

Although more and more houses are built in 'Khmer style', you still can find the traditional Phnong houses. In the houses you'll find big jars, which are said to be more than a thousand years old, and traditional gongs. There are various sorts of gongs used at different occasions. Jars and gongs are among the most valuable possessions of indigenous communities both in traditional and spiritual as well as material terms. During the times of Pol Pot those objects were buried in hidden places in the jungle and in many cases they still wait in the ground.

Mondulkiri has numerous waterfalls. Not all of them spectacular, but riding around in the beautiful countryside is a gem in itself.
