ITINERARY  

DAY 1: PHNOM PENH - DAY OF ARRIVAL 
After your arrival in Phnom Penh we will discuss your upcoming tour over dinner.
The rest of the evening is at your free disposal.
 
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, Shower, WiFi, Pool
DAY 2: PHNOM PENH
After a hearty breakfast we will set out to visit some of the sights Phnom Penh has to offer such as the Royal Palace and the Toul Sleng Museum. This will give you some insight into Cambodia’s history. Due to Phnom Penh’s notoriously congested streets our choice of transport will be the traditional Tuk Tuk. In the afternoon we will go and check your 4x4 vehicles for the trip which then will be handed over to you. 
The evening is at your free disposal.
 
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, Shower, WiFi, Pool
DAY 3: PHNOM PENH TO KAMPONG CHAM
Early in the morning we will cross the Mekong with a car ferry and leave Phnom Penh’s chaotic traffic behind. Driving along the mighty river we will first hand witness everyday life of Cambodia’s rural population. Before we dive headlong into our 4x4 adventure, however, we will make a stop at a Pagoda to receive blessings for us and our vehicles from the head monk. In the late afternoon we will arrive in Kampong Cham. Now is the time to relax at the Mekong or take a little walk over Cambodia’s longest bamboo bridge to stretch our legs.
 
Distance: ca. 130 km, tarmac  80 %, gravel 20 %
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, Shower, WiFi, Pool
DAY 4: KAMPONG CHAM TO KRATIE
Continuing our trip along the Mekong we are headed towards Kratie province, home of some of the few remaining individuals of a species of fresh water dolphins, endemic to Southeast Asia, called Irrawaddy dolphin. En route we will make a stop at Cambodia’s most colorful temple, Phnom Hanchey. After our arrival in Kratie town we will embark on a little boat cruise to visit the dolphins. 
The evening is at your free disposal.
 
optional:
kayaking on the Mekong
 
Distance: ca. 140 km, tarmac 80%, gravel 20%
Accommodation: camping on an island in the Mekong
DAY 5: KRATIE TO MONDULKIRI
The mountains are calling: We are leaving the Mekong River valley behind us (for now) and turn east to enter Cambodia’s south eastern province of Mondulkiri, home to the Punoung people, one of Cambodia’s ethnic minorities. Tiny ‘Sen Monorom’, the regional capital is today’s destination. A mere thirty minutes’ drive away is Cambodia’s highest waterfall called ‘Bousra’ where a very special adventure is waiting for the brave traveler: Zipline – Fun!!! Flying through the waterfall.
We will spend our evening in the beautiful natural landscape setting of Nature Lodge sitting under the stars and by the camp fire.
 
Distance: ca. 200 km, tarmac 80 %, gravel 20 %
Accommodation: Nature Lodge Bungalow, hot shower,WiFi
DAY 6: MONDULKIRI
There are still a number of elephants in Mondulkiri, some wild and some domesticated. Observe these grey giants in their natural habitat while walking with them through the jungle to a small river. Here is the place to take a swim and wash the elephants.
 
optional:
If you are more interested in 4 wheels than in 4 legs you can go on a daytrip with an ATV to explore the rolling grass hills Mondulkiri is famous for.
 
Accommodation: Nature Lodge Bungalow, basic comfort, hot Shower, WiFi
DAY 7: MONDULKIRI TO RATTANAKIRI
We are leaving Mondulkiri’s mountainous scenery behind and continue our journey northbound to the province of Rattanakiri. The most direct connection between Sen Monorom and our next destination – the city of Banlung – the former ‘Death Highway’ is now fully sealed and therefore has lost its bite. On the plus side: a refreshing splash in the crater lake ‘Yeak Laom’ near Banlung is only a three hours’ drive away.

DAY 9: RATTANAKIRI TO PREAH ANGKOL
One of the most breathtaking sights the Land of the Khmer has to offer are the torrential waters thundering through the seemingly endless maze of rocks and ravines of the Mekong Falls in the north of Cambodia close to the border to Laos.
This is where we are going on day 9 of our adventure. We will spend the night in a small village nearby which is a great opportunity to whiteness the everyday life of the villagers firsthand. Cook with the locals and experience a night in one of those long-legged stilt houses.

DAY 10: PREAH ANGKOL TO PREAH VIHEAR
We are traveling through the remote North of Cambodia, first along the border to Laos, then along the border to Thailand to visit “Prasath Preah Vihear”. The temple has seen armed confrontation between Thai and Cambodian border troops only a few years ago but the conflict has been settled by the UN so nowadays the area is save to visit. Most dramatically perched atop an escarpment in the Dangrek Mountains (elevation 625 m), the southern tip of the temple structure affords a great view over the plain below (good weather provided).
 
Distance: ca. 200 km, tarmac 60%, gravel 40%
Accommodation: Guesthouse, TV, WiFi, cold Beer, BBQ
DAY 11: PREAH VIHEAR TO PREAH KHAN
 
Halfway into our voyage through the Land of the Khmer today’s leg of our journey will literally take us to the middle of nowhere as we will venture to the most remotely situated temple of Cambodia - “Preah Khan of Kampong Svay”.
Built in the 11th century, probably by King Suryavarman I, the ruins of this sprawling sacred complex are scattered across an area wider even than Angkor Wat.
 
We will set up our camp for the night in a location nearby the temple.
 
Distance: ca. 100 km, tarmac 40%, gravel 60%
Accommodation: Camping!
DAY 12: PREAH KHAN TO SIEM REAP
On our way to Siem Reap we will make a stop in Kampong Kdei to visit “Spean Praptos”. Build in the 12th century by Jayarvarman VII, the more than 20 corbeled stone-arches of this 87 m long Angkorian bridge are made from laterite with its typical rusty-red color. The bridge underwent considerable restoration work and is now in a well preserved state. Our final destination for today is Siem Reap, the gateway to the millennium-old ruins of the Khmer Empire of Angkor - a world class UNESCO world heritage site.
 
The evening is at your free disposal.
 
Distance: ca. 140 km, tarmac 40%, gravel 60%

DAY 15: SIEM REAP TO BATTAMBANG
The second half of our journey has begun and we are about to explore Cambodia’s western part, the province of Battambang. The province’s main city, gentle Battambang is the old capital city of Cambodia and our final destination for today. Shortly before our arrival we will make a stop at Phnom Sampaeu, a limestone hill that affords a beautiful view over the lush and fertile countryside Battambang province is famous for. We will use the opportunity to get a glimpse inside the colorful temples that adorn the mountain top. The war relics that dot the surroundings will teach us a little more about Cambodia’s troubled recent past.
 
Distance: ca. 150 km, tarmac 70%, gravel 30%
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, WiFi, Pool, Massage!!!
DAY 16: BATTAMBANG TO PURSAT TO OSAOM
Situated in the far west of Cambodia along the Thai border are the jungle covered elevations of the Cardamon Mountain Range. An old, winding gravel road will take us to a mountain plateau where we will spend the night in simple wooden huts.
 
Distance: ca. 200 km, tarmac 40 %, gravel 60 %
Accommodation: Homestay, basic comfort, shower, fan, cold Beer and BBQ
DAY 17: OSAOM TO KOH KONG
 
“Let’s go to the Beach!”
We continue our journey through the Cardamons on that same winding gravel road. It will take us through the mountains and to the city of Koh Kong near the border to Thailand in the south westernmost corner of Cambodia. Along the way there will be plenty of spots with a great view to stop and take in the amazing scenery. Seize the opportunity and take a swim after our arrival in Koh Kong!
 
Distance: ca. 100 km, tarmac 50 %, gravel 50 %
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, WiFi, Pool, Massage!!!
DAY 18: KOH KONG TO KAMPOT
We are in Cambodia’s coastal southern region now, seemingly a world away from the country’s endless sweltering central planes. Leaving the Cardamons behind we follow the coastline until we reach the foothills of another mountain range, called ‘Phnum Dɑmrəy’, which literally translates to elephant mountains. A long winding perfectly sealed road takes us up to ‘Bokor Mountain’. With an altitude of 1000 m above sea level the edge of this plateau affords a marvelous view over the coastal planes below and the Gulf of Thailand.
The endpoint of today’s leg of our journey is the city of Kampot. Though popular with travelers for its laid back charm and scenic surroundings there is no sign of mass tourism here. Enjoy a relaxed evening in one of those small cafés or restaurants by the river and watch the fishing boats going out to the sea while the sun sets behind Bokor Mountain.
 
Distance: ca. 280 km, tarmac 100%
Accommodation: Guesthouse, AC, TV, WiFi
DAY 19: KAMPOT TO KEP TO RABBIT ISLAND
 
Both Kampot and Keb are great places to try some of Cambodia’s finest seafood, well-seasoned with the famous Kampot pepper. Highly valued by chefs and gourmets worldwide, the cultivation of this local specialty has a centuries-old tradition. Learn more about Kampot pepper and visit one of the plantations in the area.
 
In the afternoon we will embark on a little boat cruise, destination ‘Koh Tonsay’ which literally translates to Rabbit Island. We will spend the night in simple bamboo huts by the beach. Prepare to feel like Robinson Crusoe!
 
Distance: ca. 40 km, tarmac 100%
Accommodation: Bamboo Hut, very basic
DAY 20: RABBIT ISLAND TO KEP TO PHNOM PENH
 
We are leaving the Island at around noon and head for Phnom Penh. On the way we will make a stop and visit one of the many small relief projects in Cambodia. Meet the children and leave a little something behind for them.
 
On our arrival in Phnom Penh we will hand back the cars and have dinner together later.
 
Distance: ca. 150 km, tarmac 100%
Accommodation: Hotel, AC, TV, WiFi, Pool
DAY 21: PHNOM PENH - DEPARTURE
 
Pass the time until departure and go to one of Phnom Penh’s colorful markets. The Central Market or the Russian Market are great places to buy souvenirs for your loved ones at home.
