The Unbounded Beauty of Botum Sakor

August 15, 2017 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Situated in western Cambodia’s Koh Kong Province across Kompong Som Bay from Sihanoukville city is Botum Sakor National Park, the largest national park in Cambodia. The park’s pristine biodiversity comprises of gently sloping lowlands covered with evergreen forests, grassland and coastal flood plains that meet with the Cardamom Mountains to its north.

A fascinating window onto Southeast Asia’s fading ecology, Botum Sakor National Park is also home to some of the most endangered animal species on our planet, including the critically endangered Indochinese tiger, pileated gibbon, Asian elephant, Sunda pangolin, Bengal slow loris, fishing cat and hog deer.

Explore the park’s glorious rainforest and rivers while staying in the delightful village of Chi Phat. Khiri Travel Cambodia works closely with the Chi Phat Community-based Tourism Project (CBT) set up to help protect the region’s diverse ecosystem. There are also numerous soft adventure opportunities including bird watching, trekking to stunning waterfalls, kayaking along secluded waterways, and even sleeping overnight in the jungle wilderness with a local guide.

Alternatively, Khiri Travel Cambodia is offering 3 and 4 days packages with stays at Cardamom Tented Camp that are aimed at soft adventure enthusiasts looking to combine overland journeys to Thailand or other parts of Cambodia with the experience of real conservation work. Cardamom Tented Camp will open for guests in November 2017.

For more information about exploring Botum Sakor National Park, in combination with a stay in Sihanoukville, or a village homestay in Chi Phat village CBT, please contact [email protected].
