Places of Interest - Stung Treng Province

Lbak Khaon (or Sophamith) - Stung Treng Province

Cambodian children who have finished their ninth grade studies know well the geography lesson of the mighty waterfalls Lbak Khaon in the north of Cambodia. They know that this is an area where the Mekong River tumbles down 26m of tiered rock-faces at the border of Cambodia and Laos PDR. However, most have probably never had the opportunity to visit there.

In the rainy season, when the water levels of the river rise and rise to meet the top of the riverbank, the huge volume and speed of the falls create a spectacular blanket of mist; while in the dry season, when the water recedes, menacing sharp-edged rocks surface. The exposed area of the falls becomes a field of colorful rocks, of reds, blacks and whites.

Borey O’Svay - Stung Treng Province

Borey O’Svay is located in O’Savy commune of Thala Borivath district and is one of the most popular ecotourism destinations for both local Cambodians and foreign tourists wishing to experience an authentic Khmer community.

Anlong Neak & Anlong Seima - Stung Treng Province

There are many legends and traditions related to a dragon along the upper Mekong of Stung Treng province. Here in O'Svay commune, there is one special area that people called 'Anlong Neak', which means the 'dragon's lot area' and is a very deep area in the Mekong. For generations, people living along the Mekong River in Ramsa area believe that there are a couple of dragons living here, due to some obscure evidence.

'Anlong Sema' is a restricted area for fishing of the Ramsa area of Cambodia only. People say "we usually do not allow fishing in this area or even driving a boat across it. The miracle of the 'Anglong Sema' area is that the western side of the river always flows from north to south while the eastern half of river always flows from the south to north. Because of this unique behavior, we believe that this area is holy and we don't allow boats to cross here. That is why we set up a reserve for both large and small fish to spawn here."
