Banlung is the last sizable Cambodian town before the border with Vietnam. It’s not big, but it’s bigger than Sen Monoram. Many travelers don’t consider Cambodian towns “beautiful,” but I try to find beauty wherever I go. It does have a charm to it, with its dirt streets and wooden houses.
There are some waterfalls and a lake in the surrounding countryside. After visiting the lake, there was a sign pointing to a waterfall down a dirt road 20 km away. The drive was quite spectacular, down the red road that went over rolling green hills. I never found the waterfall, but the drive itself was worthwhile.
There are three other waterfalls near town, and I found two of them. Here are some of my pictures from a nice day of riding.
