‘Stung Treng - To the flooded forest’

The town of Stung Treng is usually presented as the location where the Sekong, another wide river, flows into the Mekong.
To be a little more precise, this confluence takes place in a suburb of Stung Treng. The center of town is located on the Sekong. It’s an easy walk to the site of the confluence but there isn’t much spectacular to be seen.

Another and more interesting excursion but then by boat goes to the flooded forest, upstream on the Mekong, back towards Laos.
There’s a stretch of the Mekong where the river is very wide and there are dozens of rocky and sandy islands.
It’s a virtually uninhabited area, a rather wild part of the river.
The boat trip can be made in both the dry and the rainy season. The variation in water height would be 10 metres.

However, it’s not at all as beautiful as the area of the 4.000 islands in the south of Laos, just across the border.
