Senmonorom (Khmerក្រុងសែនមនោរម្យ “Delightful”) is the capital of Mondulkiri Province, Cambodia. It is the only major town in the province of Mondulkiri. The town has over 7000 inhabitants, and is often compared to frontier towns in the old American west[citation needed].

Senmonorom (and the Mondulkiri province in general) is inhabited by the indigenous Pnong people. Pnong tribesmen and tribeswomen are often seen walking along major highways. The town is popular with NGO workers, loggers, and tourists both from outside Cambodia and from Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh.[1]

According to reports from Global Witness, the Mondulkiri province is facing a significant threat from illegal loggers attempting to exploit the area’s virgin forests.

Due to rapid development, as well as mania caused by real estate speculation, land prices in Sen Monorom have boomed. Lots that cost $150 in 2008 went for three or four times as much two years later in 2010.[3]

Doh Kromum Mountain (translated as “Virtuous Woman’s Breast Mountain”) is a breast-shaped hill located close to Senmonorom. Members of the Pnong ethnic group ascribe divine powers to the hill and every year hold festivals in the location.
