Upstream of the Se San are a certain number of Tampoun villages that practice funeral statuary; if possible; rent a boat or travel by Jeep to visit the village of Ka Choan that has superb totems, then we depart to Yaklaom lake, a beautiful and perfectly-round stretch of water, surrounded by forest, for an afternoon swim.

Later stop at some nice Kroeung villages located in the forest on both sides of the road.
In some Kroeung villages, depending on the season, discover impressive bachelor houses built on very high stilts.  Let’s notice that, when they have achieved their goal and when the young man has become head of a family, these houses are destroyed before being raised again by younger men the following season.
