Funny little place, with a sort of a cave (ish) thing happening. We had been told that our admission was included in the price we paid for the tour that day, but when we arrived our tuktuk driver told us that we would have to hire one of the children there to give us a tour because the tourist police...

We went by motorbike: be prepared! Incredibly dusty road, bumpy, but nice almost all along. When arriving to the cave you pay 1 dollar as entrance fee and children guides go with you. I would say it's needed, as inside the cave alone you could get lost (most likely). Also, bring a torch and be prepared to jump, slide, climb... More

Currently I am living in Kampot and have been looking for some time for the cave with the Funan era temple in it. Following the instructions I found online, I turned north off the road between Kampot and Kep. After several bumpy kilometers of red dirt road I crossed a railroad track, then saw a temple arch and a sign... More

This trip, by tuktuk, from Kampot to the saltfields, then to the pepperplantage,then the cave, then further to Kep, will always be remembered as "the dustroad"! But what an experience: Cambodia at its best, to see how it is to live there. A look behind the scene. Almost impossible for a car to get to the cave, you have to... More

Although the caves it-selves aren't that spectacular, the trip towards the caves (we took a tuck-tuck) is a real treat. The winding roads are in not such a great condition which adds to the atmosphere. The people who live on these roads are the actual treasure. This trip gives you an insight to the real live in a friendly way.... More

I liked the cave formations that resemble elephants but really there is not much here to see. There is a Buddhist shrine if you want to make offerings. I did not enter the cave system itself as you need to be fit and have a torch, just the upper cave.

This is a pretty good place to come and see, mainly for the cave and the formations inside of it. The guide who took me up there was really good and knew quite a bit. I'd say things is one of the main things worth seeing in the Kampot area! it's $1 to enter & then you pay your guide... More

We took a tuk tuk there from Kampot on a weekday morning and there was only a couple of kids there perhaps others had gone to school. A teenage boy became our guide who spoke very good English to our surprise. A 200+ step staircase led us up to the hillside with a beautiful view of the surroundings, and then... More

The trip to the cave is the highlight. Great to get out and see how rural people live etc. The cave is an overrated cavern. The ad hoc guides that smother you on arrival point out animal shapes and talk the place up but but for a dollar its ok--just don't make a special trip just for this cave

We took a tuk tuk there from town for $5 each. Took about 20 minutes to get there. There is a new concreate bridge built over the river/ditch for the tuk tuk to cross over so it can now park just outside. One dollar for entry, then up some steps to see a brick built temple that looked to me... More
