CAMBODIA’S CARDAMOM MOUNTAINS


An incredibly beautiful, fun and cultural motorcycle tour across Cambodia’s mighty Cardamom Mountain range. Starting off in the picturesque town of Siem Reap you will have the opportunity to visit the ancient temples of Angkor before saddling up for what will surely be one hell of an adventure! With exciting off-road riding for both novice and expert riders, we have options for some difficult riding in the rocky sections, or for those who want to take it a little easier we can stick to cruising the winding dirt roads through the hills. Temples, big guns, rocky hill climbs, river crossings, spectacular views, rural homestays and of course, the beach… this ride packs an immense variety of experiences into a one week trip!

DAY 3: BATTAMBANG – OSAOM | 220km

We’ve got some awesome trail riding today, from fast paced dirt roads, muddy sections in ‘sticky land’, river crossings and winding dirt roads that climb up in the Cardamom Mountains providing breathtaking views across the hills. We’ll finish up the day by crossing a lake on a small wooden boat before arriving at a beautiful homestay style lodge, surrounded by lakes and jungle. Cool off by jumping in for a swim behind our lodge.

Accommodation will be in a homestay style lodge.

DAY 4: OSAOM – KOH KONG | 115km

We’ll ride a fun dirt road in the morning that sweeps through the hills. We then branch off into thick thick jungle for some epic singletrack riding, stream crossings and hilly sections.

DAY 6: KOH KONG – CHIPHAT | 130km

Today we have a difficult option and an easy option. The harder route tackles the ‘old smugglers trail’: steep and technical rocky hills, lots of quirky bridges, river crossings, bamboo jungle and some really fun single track trails. The easy route sticks to the beautiful smooth roads that wind through the mountains, visiting the impressive Tatai waterfall along the way. Late afternoon we will take cold beers down to the river / rapids for a swim.
