  • This day trip from Phnom Penh by car one way Kirirom National Park for about 3 hours I went to. Pay the admission fee was $ 5 alone the foreign one. I love waterfalls and pagoda Park mountains, endless pine forests, has many lakes, numerous rivers. Important failed was lack of time, we arrive at the waterfall that was touching nature, breathe clean air, fresher. Might as well hang out leisurely, bringing food and beer on locals to mountain side location (charges apply). You should go check Info Service is not good, so good.

  • for a short Besuh not suitable, because you would have to first seek information through, edible best bring your own. Only at the Kirirom resort we saw food stalls, in the Park, there was nothing et ^ ntlang of the main road until the junction to the pagoda, which is under construction.

  • One should not too much hope from the waterfall in the National Park. It's a pity that you must pay an entrance fee and must pay extra for the toilets. But very nice for hiking.
