What’s the dealy, Mondulkiri?

Mondulkiri is the largest and most sparsely populated province of Cambodia. Days are warm and nights are refreshingly cool. Traditionally the Bunong minority have called this area home sweet home. 100% of the Bunong people we met were awesome. Well…one dude kinda seemed like a dick but that’s still a pretty good ratio no? What’s there to do here?

Elephants, forests, and waterfalls. If you like these three things, you will have a good time here. If you don’t like them things, something may be wrong with you.

Hokay picture time!

After elephant time, we crashed in this here hut with our Bunong guide, Mr. Krem and passed the night playing what resembled Chinese poker. Loser had to drink shots of rice wine/vodka.

Mr. Krem: Right up here you can see where the ceiling here caved in!                                  Us: Should we be standing under here?

One of the three waterfalls along the hike. This was most definitely ichiban. Super refreshing to swim under.

  1. So glad you made it to Mondukiri and to see the Elephants on their walks!!! 😀 YAY!
    We didn’t do the sleepover and had crazy rains when we did our walk (leeches ate me alive), and couldn’t bathe the elephants since the river was too high but it looks like you both had an amazing time. Yay Elephants!
