Until 1903 the entire mountain massif (which is the lower extremity of the Southeast Asian Massif which plunges down from Tibet, belonged to Laos. But the French decided to make Stung Treng Province a part of Cambodia and to designate the high mountains as the border between Laos and Cambodia all the way east to Vietnam.

From 2004-2008 the World Bank sponsored a protection program here, but mysteriously pulled out on December 31st of '08. According to the park rangers, not one single patrol went out in all of 2009 and the same can likely be said of 2010.
