The Bou Sraa waterfalls are the best known and most beautiful in the region of Mondolkiri and are about 40 kilometres from Sen Monorom.

My suggestion:
If you are going to the Bou Sraa waterfalls by motorbike or scooter don't forget to cover your face as the road which goes there is very dusty.
My review

After having read the information needed for the itinerary, filled up the scooter, and bought what I needed for the trip from the market, the journey from Sen Monorom to the Bou Sraa waterfall began with a long stretch of potholed road and the route was quite hard going. After a bit the surface gave way to a much better tarmacked surface as far as the water fall.

After having parked the bike, and gone down the steps which lead to the waterfall, stealing a bit of fruit on the way, I finally saw the famous Bou Sraa. The scenery is fantastic. The first fall is about 20 metres high and ends in a natural pool where a fisherman was casting his net.

If you turn round you can see the second part of the waterfall descending and immense forest for as far as the eye can see. Few people do it but you can walk down to the foot of the second fall. When you have the first fall opposite you, look for a small path on your left and you will get to a big wooden staircase (it doesn't look very reassuring but it's solid) which leads lower down. And you're there. It's a must-see during your trip to Cambodia!
