  • Phnom Chhnork is a Hindu cave temple in Kampot. You have to walk up several steps to reach it. It is then down some steps into a cave. Very small and dark. Interesting but not worth a special visit.  more »

  • Take the tour with the kid through the cave. Amazing heartbeating experience. He knows every stone in the darkness. Its good to have shoes and a lamp. You might climb, jump and sneak through tiny thin wholes.
  • Tiny gem of ancient temple in the cave. Due to natural cause -maybe- carving almost fade away. It does give us a sense of so many why's to ask such as for whom for what n when it's built.
  • Interesting small cave with an old temple. Hilarious kids who know how to extract every $ from tourists. They are knowledgeable though and will show you the extreme (super sketchy) routes in the cave if you are so inclined. Trails out there could get really slick if wet.
  • One of the most beautiful place for adventure trip with friend
  • The best part is the way to the cave with your own scooter, amazing countryside. As it's rainy season right now, the last part of the way was flooded. Looked terrific riding through the water and hoping not to get off the track ;)
