If you want to visit an untouched natural place, even it requires trekking for hours, you may want to try Stung Ta Sok waterfall, located between Koh Kong and Pursat provinces.
Wearing cowboy jeans with a two layered shirt and a pair of old sneakers, one hand holding a long knife, the other carrying a pack, local guide Korng Noy is ready to bring tourists to experience trekking to Stung Ta Sok waterfall, which lies between Phnom Samkoh Wildlife Sanctuary and the Cardamom Mountains.
The waterfall is where tourists spend their time relaxing, picnicking and swimming in very cold water to refill their energy after trekking for two hours – but every step is a joyful walk for those who enjoy nature.
“In Osoam eco-tourism community [where the waterfall is], there are many attractions for visitors. In the waterfall area we have places to visit, such as Chhay Broy waterfall and the crocodile pond, huge trees,” says 27-year-old Noy, who has two years experience as a guide in the community.
Parking at Seng Meng Kry’s home, where travellers stop for refreshments about 30km from Osoam Community Centre, tourists start by heading on foot to the 50m high Chhay Broy waterfall about 10 minutes walk on the creek bed into the jungle.
