The Ranger Station at the Veun Sai Siem Pang National Park is about a 40 minute ride by motorbike on rough dirt tracks from the riverside village of Veun Sai. The Station houses rangers and researchers from Conservation International year round and regularly hosts students from the Australian National University and overnight tourists. The facilities are of course basic but by jungles standards very comfortable with three main huts on stilts, a kitchen/eating area and a special "tourist dining hut". The station occasionally floods in the wet season (with a small river running adjacent) and provides the launch pad for forays into the jungle - about 40 mins walk to the "calling bench" from where the habituated family group of gibbons are followed.
