  • Very nice mountain covered by pine trees and other green plants! Calm, relaxing and just 2h from Phnom Penh.
  • This place is very natural. Everything is green. I can swim. Also it has a special rooms. Food is good.
  • The Only One Natural Place in Cambodia which has the Most Pine Tree. The weather is mostly Cold. You can enjoy the day there, local food and wooden cottage to relax. Recommended! (One Day trip should do)
  • There are many waterfalls. There is nice landscape. It is a forest of pine trees. It is good environment. And we can also see nice view of sunset. It is one of the great places in Cambodia.
  • Beautiful national park. Sad to see all the garbage hidden in the woods, and the big developer projects.
