LUMKUT LAKE

Last day of activities! Today we only have to shoot the last group’s video, so we rent some motorbikes and we go on a trip.

As we leave Banlung behind on our way to Lumkut Lake, we re-chat about how much we like Ratanakiri and how beautiful their red colours which dye sky and lands. WE also cross some rubber plantations whose aesthetic harmony makes the observer forget the dangerous financial opportunism which put them there. At a certain point of the route, when topping a hill, it even seems to smell like the sea…

Lumkut lake is bigger that our dear Yeak Loam lake and less cute, but the landscape is also impressive. We are almost by ourselves; only the guard and a family with a monk are visiting at the same time, so we walk by the shore looking for a dock to swim from, but it appears shrunk by a fallen tree and we decide to keep on our photo-walk.

Coming back to Banlung, we choose the road through Lumphat instead of through Borkeo to vary the route. As we go ahead, the landscape conquests us literally and when we put a foot on Banlung, we are from the same orange as the path.

We walked quickly and we go to Kachang waterfall to shoot the video. Uncontrolled littering the topic again, it looks like for the new generations it’s crystal clear that it’s important to keep water and the places where it is in good conditions… To a clean Cambodia!
