Banlung, the Red Pearl of Cambodia, the heart beat of Ratanakiri province. Ratanakiri (Mountain of precious stones) is the most north east province of Cambodia 600 km from Phnom Penh. In the north it borders to Laos and to the east to Vietnam. It is surrounded by dense forest elevated on top of the Eastern Highlands. Scattered in this region isolated hill tribes live blended in their habitat. The landscape is very divers. The whole province seems to be soaked in green. Countless creeks and streams feeding two big rivers which peacefully meander from the east to the west. Waterfalls and lakes manifest as wonderful arts of nature. Visiting the 'Mountain of precious stones' will offer you a wonderful nature in all its variety and encounters with the everlasting smile of the local hill tribes.

Ratanakiri is one of the most remote provinces of Cambodia, captured between Vietnam in the east and Laos in the north. The remote location is one of the reasons that Ratanakiri ranks number four of the least populated provinces. The southern neighbour province Mondulkiri is the least populated of Cambodia.

Banlung district, also the capital of Ratanakiri province, is the most populated district out of nine. Ratanakiri is the home of eight ethnic minorities scattered over the nine districts. Numbers of population of the minorities vary significant.

As a tropical country, Ratanakiri is bathed in almost all year sunshine and has a high average temperature. There are two distinct seasons, the dry and the monsoon. The monsoon lasts from May to October with southwesterly winds ushering in the clouds that bring seventy five to eighty percent of the annual rainfall often in spectacular intense bursts for an hour at a time with fantastic lightening displays. The dry season runs from November to April averaging temperatures from 27 to 40 degrees Celsius. The collest and most comfortable for those from cooler climates is from October to February
