The small village of Preah Rumkel (ព្រះរំកិល) is home to about 1,000 families, 8km long and set alongside the mighty Mekong River which this stretch of the Mekong River recognised by the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance (www.ramsar.org).
It’s quiet yet beautiful and peaceful. With dozens of islands, a rich array of bird life, and various rapids and waterfalls cascading down from Laos, this is one of the mother river’s wildest and one of most beautiful stretches not just in Cambodia but the whole Mekong. Its proximity to the Anlong Cheuteal Irrawaddy dolphin pool near the Lao border.
It has been emerging as a hotbed of ecotourism as it is on the way to the great Mekong Falls which leave a big impression on every visitor. In addition to that, visitors can try the famous sticky rice wine which is only available at Preah Rumkel community.
