A must see in Battambang !! Millions of bats leaving the caves just before sunset. As you enter the street there are chairs and tables alongside the road whereby you can sit and watch the bats when they come out of the cave.

If you're considering not visiting the bat caves, stop being a silly sausage. It's potentially a once in a lifetime experience (twice for me cause I'm well lucky) and it's truly awesome.

I've been to the bat cave several times and I've enjoyed it the same each time. About a hour before sunset, thousands of bats come pouring out of the cave. This continues nonstop for over an hour. Its amazing to watch the swirling line of bats cut across the sky

Every evening at very near to specific time, thousands of nocturnal bats taking flight from the surrounding caves in a massive formation of dark, black clouds. Be sure to photograph this amazing and staggering sight. This a natural spectacle and is a must must do activity in Cambodia, I doubt if any such activity can be seen anywhere in the world. There are many restaurants around here which provide sitting spaces provided you buy atleast one drink. We opted a restaurant with terrace to get best view and it was a great experience.

It's about a 30 min drive to this mountain from BTB just off the highway 57. The mountain itself has scattered caves abound some with skeleton remains from the unfortunate Khmer Rouge era. Temples and monks make their home on the mountain amongst the obligatory local tourist stands. Casual walking required up top but nothing strenuous. $2 entry fee. You should time it such that you come down from the mountain by 5 PM then stop at the bottom of the mountain (near the entrance) and watch the wondrous nightly departure of thousands and thousands of bats! It's like being in a National Geographic moment. This is an excellent day excursion from Battambang.
