De ruimte

Staying at our house you will experience real tranquillity. The sounds of the birds and the nature are still those of the forest. Just staying there after exhausting travelling will calm you down and is a balm to the soul.
You can hike through the surrounding hills of Phnum Sway, the Mango-Mountain, ride a motorbike or cycle to natural attractions such as waterfalls and the Yeak Laom (Lat:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN),Long: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) lake close by.
The house was built solely from wood and bamboo in 2003, but we had to change skin and roof to wood and tiles later.
The garden has Bananas, Mangos, Avocados, Cashews ... at your disposal. All you can eat- depending on the season.
There is no luxury. Mat and mosquito net is all we can provide. Water is from a natural spring about 60 m away from the house. You can shower there and water is also carried back to the house. Near the house there is a small concrete bath room with a view and a WC.

A local NGO Human and Health are starting to set up eco-tourism for income generation for their activities. They will be arranging what you need for your stay. H&H are working with the Provincial Health Department in TB control. May be accompanying them to villages in Ratanakiri for activities such as awareness raising of case detection can be arranged. Mr. Nimith from H&H can also provide information for conservation tours to the national parks in Ratanakiri. phone:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
Our neighbour Mr. Pring can provide very good rice beer from the jar and arrange to play gongs if you are enough people.

Ratanakiri is located in the North East of Cambodia. It borders Laos to the North, Viet Nam in the East, Mondulkiri Province in the South and Steung Treng Province to the West. Ratanakiri is one of the largest provinces of Cambodia but with a low population density and a total population of only 170.000 people. (However the population has doubled within the past 20 years)
The soil on the plateau is red lateritic soil as in many parts of the central highlands of Viet Nam. Rubber had been planted here since the colonial times and is now experiencing a large boom again. Commercial agricultural industries are more and more replacing traditional ways of farming and alter the landscape of the province.
The area was quite isolated from the rest of the world until the 2nd Indochina war, when the Ho Chi Minh trail had to be built and the province became a target for fierce bombing and battles. The forests of Ratanakiri also provided shelter for the first Khmer Rouge (KR) leaders during the late 1960s when they were still a small and neglectable group.
After the KR, during the civil war in the 1980s and beginning of the 1990s Ratanakiri remained cut off from the southern provinces of Cambodia. It was mainly reached by land through Viet Nam or by air from Phnom Penh and Steung Treng. Infrastructure to the south on road 78 and road 7 was bad and unsecure, with KR groups operating in Steung Treng, Kratie and Mondulkiri.
The people of Ratanakiri are still by majority indigenous people of several different groups with distinct languages. Culturally they are more related to other indigenous groups in Laos and Viet Nam than to the Cambodian Khmer population. Indigenous people have an animist believe system that is still very much represented in their customs.

Ratanakiri is a hub to Laos and the Central Highlands
In 2001 travelling via road to Phnom Penh still took 3 days, often taking a boat on the Mekong between Steung Treng and Kompong Cham. Today its only 8 hours from Phnom Penh, and 2 hours from Steung Treng and the Lao border.
Today Ratanakiri is a hub in the triangle Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam. There are daily busses to Pleiku (three hours). If you start at 7:00 in Ban Lung, Ratanakiri you can be at the sea in Quy Nhon (Latitude (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), Longitude (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), Viet Nam in the afternoon at about 15:00 via the famous road No 13 through the central highlands. From Pleiku you can take a night bus to Ho Chi Minh city or Danang, Hue, Nha Trang arriving there in the morning the next day.

Busses to Gia Lai (Pleiku)-Viet Nam: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
Better you have someone speak Khmer or Vietnamese when calling those numbers ;-) Send me an e.mail and I can try to arrange the bus from here;-)

The house is dedicated as a memory to Nguyen Ngoc Giau, my first wife who passed away some years ago. The garden with its fruit trees and the atmosphere are her creation.

Phnum Svay mountain is home to a powerful spirit. His name is Chongrong and he was from the Tampoun tribe. Respect the nature - especially the water source. If you drink alcohol pour a bit of the drink onto the soil and offer it to the spirits of the land.

Our contact was in another country with different time zone so it was hard to communicate. The host dosen't speak english at all and is not really interested by sharing with his guests.Because of the time zone difference, our contact taught that we were suppose to arrive a day before our reservation. On our arrival, the host who was suppose to pick is up never showed up and we had difficulties reaching the contact who speak english. There is no way you can find the place without the host.Unfortunately, we were looking for a local experience where it was possible to learn about local culture and share good time with our host. The guy is not interested on communicating, eating in his corner and it feels that he is only hosting for the money it brings. He cooked us rice with a small portion of fish, we had 5 beers, pastries as breakfast, and charged us 15US for this which was really frustrating when you know how cheap this is on the street. I would not go back there as there's other good options in Banlung for a lot cheaper.

What a wonderful place to be and spend a night in the middle in the Forrest J'ai passé 2 nuits à cette endroit et ce fut parfait. C'est un endroit paisible et retiré. Le coucher de soleil et super. Ollie n'était pas la quand j'y étais mais il y avait son " majordome " qui s'occupe de vous. Il vous prépare à manger ( très bon ) et vous fait découvrir les différents alcool typiquement Cambodgien C'est une expérience genial pour ce prix la Je recommande fortement !

We absolutely loved Ollie's place. 5 minutes from town, with breathtaking views. Loved watching the sunrise and sunsets. No frills, but exactly what we were after. Just nature and us. It was quiet, clean, and was the perfect place to stay if you want to be surrounded by nature. Ollie wasn't there during our stay, but his friend Ma Paul (I hope I'm spelling that right!) was so amazing. He cooked the most delicious dinners and could not have been more helpful. I recommend asking him for the Vietnamese Sour soup ... amazing!! Ollie was extremely helpful in making arrangements for our arrival, and checked in to ensure everything was okay. We didn't rent the scooter, but I would highly recommend doing this. We could not have asked for a more perfect stay. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Maybe the best place to be in Ratanakiri for nature lovers. Olli is a wonderfull host, very kind, funny, and a good guy to spend time with, as well as his housekeeper Kleung. Five minutes from the City of Banlung, you can have lunch downtown, or at home still feeling lost in the jungle with a perfect view of a piece of Ratanakiri. And at dinner a view on sunset. The wonderfull place and the lovely host always makes you want to stay more nights. Once again, if you love nature, don't hesitate !

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Battanlung! Olli's Haus ist wirklich wunderschön auf einem Hügel gelegen, in die eine Richtung ist der Sonnenaufgang, in die andere der Sonnenuntergang zu sehen. Für die Anfahrt sind Motorräder sehr zu empfehlen, da die Hütte etwas abgelegen ist mit dem Motorrad jedoch ist alles in kurzer Zeit zu erreichen. Wir wurden sehr herzlich von einem Herrn empfangen der sich um das Haus kümmert - er hat uns alles wichtige gezeigt und uns auch mit unserem Gepäck geholfen. Die Hütte an sich ist sehr rustikal, keine Elektrizität und ein Gasherd....aber gerade das macht den Charme des Hauses aus!:)
