Bou Sra Waterfall
Huge waterfall in the midst of the Bunong people's
What we say:
This magnificent waterfall tumbles through a gorge set in the jungle near the Bunong town of Bou Sra, and can be reached by way of a somewhat adventurous 43 km road from Sen Monorom, about an hour long ride depending on both your moto drivers skill and ab
The dramatic 3-stage falls create a natural and relatively safe swimming pool, which is popular with both locals and visitors alike during the warmer months. Beautiful nature photography is a possibility here, as is just hanging out and enjoying lunch in a relatively pristine and quiet piece of natural Cambodia.
A planned tourist development here never really took off to Bou Sra Falls remote location, although there are non-pushy vendors selling snacks and souvenirs if you're in the mood for refreshment. It's a good idea to hire an English speaking driver/guide to explain what you're looking at and provide interesting background information.
Only relatively skilled bikers should attempt this twisting and gravelly road by themselves, and exercise extra caution in the muddy season.
