  STS61A-32-0030 Mekong River, Cambodia November 1985
The muddy Mekong River with its multiple intersecting stream channels extends southward (upper right to lower left) in this near vertical view of southeast Cambodia. The area covered in this image extends from just north of Kracheh to the Stoeng Treng area (upper right). This section of the Mekong passes largely through undeveloped jungle covered terrain. The dark topography (right center) along the upper east side of the river is a slightly elevated, densely forested landscape. STS61A-32-0029 shows another section of the Mekong River in Cambodia southwest of this scene and immediately northeast of Phnom Penh.
