Nestled among rolling hills, green meadows and lush forests lies Sen Monorom, the tiny capital of Mondulkiri.

Life here takes on a slower pace than elsewhere in Cambodia and the small market in the centre of town is the bustling hub of the community.

Sen Monorom is an excellent starting point for numerous mini-adventures that explore the region.

Bou Sra Waterfalls

The mighty Bou Sra Waterfalls are the largest and most famous in Cambodia, and are celebrated in song throughout the country, despite most Cambodians never having visited them.

Local culture

Pnong traditional house, Sen MonoromMany ethnic minority villages can be visited in Mondulkiri and this is an eye-opening experience. For example, the hill tribes of Mondulkiri enjoy a different culture to those in other provinces and this is evident in the unique architecture of their homes and communal lifestyle.

While accommodation options here are basic, new guesthouses are constantly opening. We recommend at least three nights in Sen Monorom to fully appreciate the hidden delights of this province.
