Inside Tribal Hotel at Rattanakiri

One is writing this from one's wooden chalet at "Tribal Hotel" located adjacent to the evergreen rainforests that straddle the tri-junction where Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam meet each other. Vietnam is exactly 68 km. away from Rattanakiri, while Laos is almost the same distance away. Rattanakiri is tucked away in a corner of North-Eastern Cambodia, which is home to several indigenous tribes, who have lived in these forests since centuries. Rattanakiri is famous for its semi-precious stones, including rubies, amethysts and oynx. Most probably the name Rattanakiri is a corruption of the Sanskrit word Ratnagiri or mountain of gemstones.
