Hiking in the forest of Kirirom National Park and back to Phnom Penh
These journey follows the Chambok community which is a rural tourism project that benefits local farmers. We hike through the bamboo forest to the hidden waterfall, explore the forest and visit the bat cave before we step up to the Kirirom National Park and then we have a picnic lunch with nature surroundings. Continuously, we hike through the pine forest and enjoy a nature richest setting before we reach the mountain cliff to get a stunning view of Cardamom mountain range. Upon the arrival of Kirirom mountain cliff and refreshing with panorama views across Cardamom mountain range, we walk down through the ranger routes to our vehicle where is the finish point of our hike today.
