You cross different types of bamboo forest before you walk up Yeak Kong Kriev Mountain. There you have an amazing view over the nearby hills and forest valleys. Explore the top of the mountain and cross the grassland, where in rainy season often animals come to drink from the water hole.

Continue your trek down the steep mountain and through several stream valleys before you stop for lunch. The food will provide you enough energy to walk deeper in the forest up the small mountain area to reach Yeake Waterfall. In rainy season, it is impressive scene. In dry season, the waterfall gives enough water for a bath and peaceful sound of waterfall music.
