Bou Sra Waterfall


Bou Sra Waterfall is the one attraction place to visit in Mondulkiri Province where have location in Pich Chenda district about 43 kilometers northeast of Mondulkiri provincial town, Sen Monorom. Therefore Busra is considered by many to be the most beautiful waterfall in Mondulkiri. The waterfall is divided into three stages: First Stage: The waterfall fall is 8 to 12 meters high and 15 meters wide in the rainy season and 10 to 15 meters wide in the dry season. Second Stage: The waterfall fall is 15 to 20 meters high and 20 meters wide in the rainy season and 18 to 25 meters high and 13 meters wide in the dry season. The second stage is 150 meters from the first stage. Third Stage: The speed of the waterfall is faster than the second stage. This stage cannot be reached because it is in the thick forest. There are no marked paths and dangerous wildlife inhabits the area.

Why Bou Sra waterfall became a popular waterfall in Mondulkiri Province? The double-drop waterfall is very popular with the locals who use it as a bathing and picnic spot. Its top-level is around 10m in height, and the lower level drops down 25m to the gorge. It is in a scenic and pristine setting and offers great photo ops. Nearby is the ethnic Phnong village called Pichinda which has a small guesthouse. Some snacks are available at the falls, but bring food if you would like something more substantial. Then we head northeast to Bou Sra. We never rode north on this road before and I am surprised that right behind the first hill it is getting rougher than most we have seen yesterday. We cross a small river on an improvised bridge and are charged 500 Riel each by a bunch of kids.
