WATERFALLS

We are fed up with working all day so, with the strong purpose of not missing Banlung, we rent a motorbike and we go for a ride. As soon as we take the bike, the sky goes dark and the angriness produced by the increase of the probabilities of rain in our only free day mixes with the fear of potential driving through muddy paths… We swallow both of them and head to visit the waterfalls.
The route is commendable, everything around is orange. As it is cloudy, it is fresh and we ride quiet while the air hits our faces, enjoying the effortless movement… what a lovely feeling! Hooray motor!
The first waterfall we visit is Kachang and our arrival is followed by a series of happy events: we are alone, the sun starts to show up among the clouds, in the stand they sell sunflower seeds! (wonderful unexpected finding), we cross a hanging bridge and we get to the waterfall, it looks a design one, as if someone had painted the one from Fa deodorant advert in orange, the place is superclean… we are delighted. The orange density of water doesn’t invite to swim, so we sit on some rocks to eat the sunflower seeds… ups! they are coconut flavoured!

We go back to the motorbike. We keep on going through orange villages, the clouds adopt beautiful shapes in the sky, if there is anything stunning in Ratanakiri, it is the sky. The second waterfall is named Ka Tieng. The waters keep on being intensely orange and we are alone again. This waterfall is also very nice and the area that takes to it is full of trees and vines forming weird shapes. This time we see the waterfall from the top. artwatereness-waterfall-ratanakiri2 You look at one side and the river barely moves, you look at the other and a huge torrent of water goes down very noisily, because the sound is amplified by a cave in the middle of the fall.
On our way back home, we stop to buy fruit, which weights zero in motorbike. Being motorized has been a pleasure.
