This is a Cambodian poster I haven’t come across before and I have a big collection. This sample may be washed out with age or the artist had discovered some of the locals secrets. The area around the waterfall is much greener as I remember it like the photograph below.

A color correction possibility —but all guesswork.

The birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire, it is said that it was at Phnom Kulen that King Jayavarman II proclaimed Cambodia’s independence from Java.

A playground for locals, Phnom Kulen (literally Mountain of the Lychees) is a gorgeous day out. The main attraction is the waterfalls at the top of Kulen Mountain and it’s also a great picnic spot; well set up in Cambodian style with hammocks and shelters to keep you shaded from the sun. It’s around 1.5-2 hours drive from Siem Reap and if you go all the way to the top by van or car, you need to get there early, as the road is one-way traffic only.
