Day 3: Virachey's 'Tanop' 2 day Trek (B/L/D)

You assemble at the DutchCo's office/depot at 08.00 am in Banlung. Departure time is 08.30 which gives you half an hour to organize your back-packs.

At 08.30 we leave by Motor bike*,car, minivan or trekking truck northern direction to Voensai. In Voensai we take take a small local boat that takes us a short distance upstream the Sesan River. Very shortly we reach the river mouth of the O' Lalai river. The O' Lalai river has its springs further to the north inside the Virachey NP. It's clean and unpolluted water. This very beautiful natural small river with banks flanked with all kinds of vegetation. This river will be used for boat transport to take you up to the Kok Lak/La lai communities 7km up stream (approximate 40min.)

Once you arrive at Tra village, we need to register at the at the village Chief's house. After that we continue a little further north by boat until we go ashore at the east bank of the O' Lalai river.

We start walking through a variety of landscapes. Patches of forests alternate with rice paddy fields. Some giant trees dot the small patches of forest. Around noon we'll have lunch at a small farm house

The further north you get, the denser the forest. Soon we'll enter the primary forest. It goes a little uphill. During the trek we take regular brakes to enjoy the surrounding and to rest a little bit. We'll arrive at the campsite around 4 pm. Your guide will start boiling some water for coffee or tea, while you can refresh in a nearby stream. The hammocks will be tied and the campsite prepared for the night. You can enjoy a nice dinner at the campfire.

The night hike (option)

Armed with a flash light, we take a small hike around the campsite. What we are looking for are small nocturnal animals. On quite some occasions we've spotted some Lorys Pigmy's (a very small primate) and some Civets (small jungle cats). You can find them in all layers of the trees canopy. We saw some deer as well. Though the chance to see wild life during the trek is fairly small, the chances increase during the night hike. Even if we don't see any wild life, the atmosphere during a night hike is definitely more exiting.

Day 4: Banlung (B/L/D)

Today you will rise early and enjoy witnessing how the crickets and other insects get silence, and the birds taking over the orchestra. Breakfast is prepared while you enjoy your hot coffee or tea. Around 8.30 you leave the campsite. You continue south. At the end of the trek you might recognize some farmhouses you've seen before. But because now you are facing south that will give you a complete different view. Early noon you get back to Tra Village.  

Here your guide prepares lunch and in the mean time you are free to venture out into the village. From here you go by boat back to Voensai.

And here is the same thing. Now that you are traveling south you experience a different boat trip than before. In Voensai transport is waiting for you to take you back to Banlung on a 45 minute trip. Appropriate arrival time in Banlung around 4pm.

Day 5: Rattanakiri – Kratie (B/L/D)

Breakfast. We return to Kraie by 4x4wd. Enrooted we visit local villages. Once we arrive Kratie take a ferry to Koh Trong. Koh Trong is a beautiful quiet island opposite the riverfront of Kratie Town, an almighty sandbar in the middle of the river. No cars, but carts, smiling peasants, craggy fishermen and a rich soil that man turned into an orchard, Koh Trong is a small paradise. It is a short ferry ride between town life and a slice of Cambodia’s rural ways.
