  • we had a child to guide us, gave them $2 as they took us the shortcut back through the cave.... we should have asked what that meant. It was dark, you need a torch, juggling a big camera, and torch on...  more »
  • Our visit to the temple in the cave was very exciting and interesting. Our guides took the more adventurous members on an alternative way out of the cave which made for an awesome experience.  more »

  • Nice walking place. Shame they charge for parking and entrance. Temples and nature should be free as they are. But a nice small hole up and down.
  • Small! You've done it in 10 min. But quiet good, 1 $pp for the entry
  • Entrance fee US$1/person. Need to climb some steps up and then down to arrive the limestone cave. Local kid shown us the way to get inside the temple. Interesting trip. Nice view of the surrounding areas .
  • Closed today for filming 8/2/17 but there is another cave you can visit really close by...lots of kids around to show the way with impeccable English...and a cafe for the all important iced coffee ☆
  • Had a local kid show us around and tell us about the cave. It's pretty small but very nice... You'd need a guide to get around it as there's a few very narrow areas to clamber through. It's out of the way and we didn't see any other tourists. The area around the cave is wonderful. I highly recommend hiring a motorbike and cruising around. Nearby is the so-called "secret lake" which is worth a visit. After a month or so in Cambodia, this felt like the first truly rural 'real' Cambodia.
