View of Northern Kulen Valley from Phnom GanjaAllow us to reach the most pristine parts of the park, sleeping in tents or hammocks beneath the stars with dinner on the rocks beside a perennial stream.

We can seek out the wildlife on a nightwalk with the chance of spotting giant flying squirrels, civets, leopard cat and many nocturnal birds.

Our route while not far offers a challenging mountain bike ride or hike in a thrilling location.

Options;

The hike is an easy 10km on the first day with the option of a hard climb up a nearby escarpment to get one of the best views in the park (shown above).

For those who want to take it gently we can follow the same route on mountain bikes or detour to include 2 remote villages.

The second day for both cyclists and hikers covers 20km, finishing at the Angkor Center for Conservation and Biodiversity (ACCB), which we can visit energy levels permitting.
