7km northwest of Banlung town, Katieng Waterfall is a classic Ratanakiri favourite. The top pool of water cascades down over a rock shelf into a large pool below. Admire the forest views from the top or take the wooden stairs down for a dip at the bottom. The water is cooling, and the large rock face allows you to sit behind the waterfall as it flows from the top. Katieng Waterfall is managed by the local Indigenous community and the small entry fee supports the nearby villages.
