Stop 1: Hike Sampov Mountain

Your tuk-tuk driver will take you to the base of Sampov Mountain. From here, your guides will lead you on a hike up the mountain. As you ascend, you will be able to take in incredible views of the lush green forest, rice fields, and the twinkling lights of the distant Battambang town—this is truly a sight to behold!

Stop 2: The Temple Wall

As we ascend, we will reach an ancient Buddhist temple with walls decorated in traditional Eastern art. Your guides will explain the many stories and traditions associated with these decorated walls and its connection to Buddhism in Cambodia.

Stop 3: Killing Caves

As light gradually fades, we will head to the Killing Caves. There, we will meet a local resident who will give us an overview of the caves and explain its significance during the Khmer Rouge period. Walk through the caves and learn more about the atrocities committed during this difficult period of Cambodia’s history, but look out too for the fissures that allow light in—a symbolic reminder that hope and reconciliation will always prevail.

Stop 4: The Sublime Lookout

As we exit the caves, we will be treated to one of the best lookouts of the tour. Immerse yourself in this sublime scenery, and take in the deep orange hues falling below the horizon. You can take a short breather here as your guides tell you local stories of Sampov Mountain, a site often used for Buddhist meditation.

Stop 5: Monkey Business!

As we approach the top of Sampov Mountain, we will likely spot small groups of monkeys scampering around the nearby trees. These monkeys are very used to having visitors and are highly entertaining. Be sure to capture pictures of them!

Stop 6: The Bat Caves

We will now start our descent down the mountain, just in time to catch the bats! As darkness falls, we will begin to see thousands of nocturnal bats taking flight from the surrounding caves in a massive formation of dark, black clouds. Be sure to photograph this amazing and staggering sight!
