Mondulkiri (literally: "Mountain of the Mandala.") is a little visited province in northeast Cambodia, 380km from Phnom Penh. It shares borders with central Vietnam to the south and Tattanakiri to the east. The capital town of Mondulkiri is Senmonorom, a small and quaint community nestled between two lakes.
The terrain of Mondulkiri is made up of mountain plateau, forest, slope, and rivers. It is best known for its beautiful waterfalls, densely forested hills and diverse ecosystem, ranked among the top destinations for eco tourism and adventure travel in Cambodia. You can discover its enormously rich natural resources, especially indeginous wildlife, trek to majestic mountains, enjoy elephant ride, visit many ethnic villages in surrounding regions of Senmonorom and taste the local wine Sra Peang.
Mondulkiri is situated at an average altitude of 800m above the sea level. Many thus call it “the Switzerland of Cambodia”. The area is subject to a different pattern of climates compared to the other regions of Cambodia. It is usually warm in daytime and may get chilly at night, so bring extra layer clothing if you are heading to the land.
