How to get from Laos to Mondulkiri

How to get from Laos to Mondulkiri

Laos to Mondulkiri

If you want to travel from southern Laos or the 4000 islands to Mondulkiri you first need to catch a minivan to the border between Laos and Cambodia.

From the border you need to get a minivan to Stung Treng.   This is first town you will come to in Cambodia.  It is located on the Mekong River.

From Stung Treng you can catch the Virak Buntham minivan that is travelling east from Siem Reap to Mondulkiri.

It is a good idea to book this online because it will already have people who got on the minivan at Siem Reap.

Before you depart from Laos to Mondulkiri we recommend you book a one or two day elephant tour at the award winning Mondulkiri Project.

The Mondulkiri Project’s one day elephant tour is a day visit to their elephant sanctuary to feed and walk with their 5 rescued elephants.  In the afternoon you will get the opportunity to swim at their waterfall and wash three elephants there.  Lunch is provided at their lodge in the jungle.  Tour price is $50usd.

The Mondulkiri Project’s two day elephant tour is their most popular tour.  One day is a visit to their elephant sanctuary to spend time with their 5 elephants as mentioned above.  Next it is time to try some hill tribe food for dinner, cooked  in a piece of bamboo over an open fire.  Rice wine for dessert and then sleeping in comfortable hammocks in their Jungle Lodge.  Day two is an 18km jungle trek with an expert hill tribe guide to visit waterfalls and a cave.  Four meals and accommodation is included in the tour price of $80usd

We hope to meet you soon.
