  • 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.

  • Amazing place for cycling, trekking, camping with friend. This is the natural place for explorer whom feel in love with jungle and pre-wedding with your love. As my experience cycling and trekking this mountain make me powerful relaxing with the world. Great Place
  • Have a lot of green tree during some season but some season people burn the grass so the view look a bit odd. Great view can be found after Khmer new year in the mouth of April.
  • Great place to visit, good view and fresh air but during dry season it is a bit hot and has only a little water.
  • Its an easy day out of Phnom Penh. There are some delightful spots but most have been ruined by the crowds of people who visit on weekend and holidays. If you explore and go up towards the Pagoda there are some nice spots but you do need your own vehicle
  • If you love nature, mountain biking, picnic and visiting temples...plus knowing the mystery and legend of this preserved national park, this is a definite destination.
