Bon Om Touk
In November Cambodian’s celebrate Bon Om Touk, or the Water Festival. The festival lasts for three days, and commemorates the end of the country’s rainy season as well as the reversal of flow of the Tonlé Sap river. These photos were taken atop Phnom Kulen, a holy mountain, considered the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire. Pilgrims from all over Cambodia travel to the mountain for good luck in the coming year.
