Phnom Bokor National Park, Kampot

3.4
Home to the dilapidated French hill station, Phnom Bokor National Park sits as one of only two ASEAN Heritage Parks in Cambodia. Sprawling mountainous jungle provides a safe habitat for a diverse range of wildlife, including a herd of wild Indian elephants, leopards, and snakes. The accessible section of the park is its hill station, scattered with relics of French colonialism from the 1920s, including an abandoned casino and church. Hire a local tour guide and head to the summit, exploring the misty grounds, leftover ruins, and spectacular views.

    If you have a bike, you will enjoy the short turn off the main road and explore the top of the hill with its buildings and history around. Pick a sunny day though  more »

    We had a nice morning cruising around the national park with a motor. It was quite foggy at the top, but on the way down we had some nice views. We also enjoyed the water falls as it was rainy season....  more »

    The place could be beautiful, but it's literally ruined by poor construction. Fortunately the cascades Popokvil is beautiful and the road to climb to the top offers in panorama of the beautiful province of Kampot.
