Weekly Photo: Phnom Kulen Waterfall

The water looks rather brown, but it’s actually not so bad when you are close up. Phnom Kulen Waterfall is about 2 hour drive from Siem Reap along a windy road. You end up in the middle of the jungle, but it’s rather pleasant. There are few foreigners and the place is relaxing. A nice …
