This was an unexpected adventure.We wern't anticipating the exciting and trecherous trip into the bowels of the cave, but it was well worth it! Not for the faint hearted!

Quite puzzled by this place. The panorama from the top is very nice, but the visit of the cave in itself is not extraodinary. Children guide you through the way, but it's so dark you basically can't see anything... Proper shoes are required.

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.

We rented scooters for the day and one of our stops on our countryside tour was Phnom Chhngok caves. It was relatively easy to find using Google maps but when you get to a sign that says "Easy way to caves" you have to option...More

This cave is pretty nice, though honestly not as stunning as some other caves I've seen in South East Asia. To get here you have to drive through sparkling-green paddies and picturesque villages, which is a lot of fun in its own right. The cave...More

This is not an easy place to find, and even when you're almost there, things can be confusing. Our GPS helped a little, but the area is swarming with people that want to "help" you find the caves for a fee. When you get there...More

Talk about huffing and puffing. The guide takes you to the entrance. He did warn me about how many steps we had to go up just to reach the entrance. He was right. A must see if you go to Kampot or Kep
