Phnom Sampeau and all the grounds around it, are very interesting. If you really want to explore the history and culture of Cambodians, you must visit.

A nice slow walk to the top but we'll worth it. Great to do before seeing the bats at sunset. Small charge but not over the top.

The Killing cave take just 5-10min to walk around quietly and take picture. It's not huge. It's possible to go up to the killing cave and pagoda for free and with motorbike, if you don't want to walk. And it's possible to park your motorbike...More

The buildings are quite nice, most of them are beautifully kept and renovated. It’s fun to watch the monkeys and see how much they remind human beings. The controversy comes about the torture statues and then the killing cave atmosphere. There are no words to...More

Phnom Sampeau is a remarkable hill-top setting outside Battambang that is now clearly a major tourist attraction. Obviously too it is an important place for Cambodian people to visit though you'd wonder where they all are as it is hard to discern any extensive settlements...More

Loved to see the monkeys and temples at the top. The Killing Cave was macabre and haunting. This was a profound part of my travels. I feel honored to have been able to visit. Glad I was able to enjoy a motorcycle ride up the...More

Good place to visit and get a perspective of the brutality of the Khmer Rouge but there is no information or sign posts to help you on the mountain. The caves are behind some buildings that you must guess that the pathway runs between and...More

Took a tuk-tuk tour here to base of mountain. Bit of a trek to the top, challenging if unfit/unable. People say there was litter everywhere and poorly maintained. I say, hey, it's Cambodia. They're learning. The killing caves another reminder of the bleak, recent history...More

I'd combined this visit to the Killing Cave and Phnom Samprov temple, with the intent to see the bats fly out of the cave near the road below the mountain at sunset, as indeed I think most do. After a 30-35 min drive there I...More

We visited this place yesterday. It's a hard climb to the top and when we got there we were disgusted at the amount of rubbish. We felt that it was disrespectful to the memory of all those who died here at the hands of the...More
