When i see reviews on this cave it seems like noone enjoyed. Seen the cave, not brilliant, got a bit cheated by local boys. All is NOT how we´ve experienced! Came there, local boy joined us, we didnt plan to give him any money. Entrance fee 1dollar + one of us borrowed head-torch. He brought us to the cave, a... More

I was taken there by the hotel Tuk Tuk driver. Great way to see the country side. End of wet season so some rads were muddy and bumpy but that is half of the adventure. Went through miles of rice paddys and small villages until we came to a cliff face with caves. We were greeted by stunning views high... More

If you don't feel comfortable paying children for guide services you really don't need a guide here. In the cave there is a reportedly 7th century brick temple with a linga of Shiva, and some formations that look like an elephant, a headless crocodile and a turtle (steps beside the temple). A torch helps, and mosquito repellent! The rest is... More

A little bit off the beaten track and on a bumpy road but lots to see of the local culture on the way. It is not far from Kampot so about 10 dollars for the tuk tuk tops and a small tip is always appreciated. As we used a known driver from the hotel he had a quick chat to... More

Local guides were very helpful. $1USD entry fee. Bring enough change to cover entry fee and guide. We only brought $10USD notes. Should have planned better. Long dusty washboard red dirt road to get there.

I will admit - the weather is sweltering hot and it didn't help having to climb a lot of stairs to get here....but the temple is from the 6th Century and is similar in style to Sambor Prei Kuk. I went with a Cambodian architect/professor, so I received a great deal more information than the average person. The site could... More

It is not really easy to find so plan enough time to go to this cave. There is a parking for motorbikes nearby and then it takes a 5 minute hike to get up to the cave. There were some guides who can show you around but they wanted more money than we were willing to spend.

We were fortunate to have very going guides so our stay was very informative.Basically you need a good guide in Cambodia, otherwise you will have no understanding of culture.

Thid was surprisingly adventurous. You enter the cave and take some hidden way, climbing across the rocks. So a guide is needed. No flip flops, better wear some steady sneakers as it s slippery. Bring a front torch. Inside you can see a temple, many bets close by and spiders.

I't a really dark, difficult and steep rock-strewn descent down to the cave, so if you're not the youngest, be sure to wear sturdy shoes and clothing.
