Network of caves and fantastic viewa
Sep 2020
Went there with no expectations and really enjoyed it. Very nice limestone formation with a network of caves that is bigger than it seems, dotted with Buddhist shrines . View of the Countryside and rock formations from the upper cave is fantastic. There are also bats hanging around and the rock pool, which was not full enough for a good swim (it’s been a very dry rainy season)

Best to stop there on your way to or back from Phnom Penh as a tuk tuk ride from kampot or kep would be far away.
It’s also best to go during or just after the rainy season so that the countryside is glowing and the rock pool is full.

Long way but worth it

Maybe things have changed. From Kep our tuk-Tuk driver took the main sea road towards Phnom Penh up to Kampong Track Market where we turned left along a cement block road and only a short bit of dust track. Children were waiting near the entrance to the caves and no torches as now there is lighting inside, maybe took a bit of adventure away. We has a young girl as a “guide” and it is worth it as as well as telling you the names of the various formations they tell you when to be careful where you put your feet and when to duck your head. But don’t let them hurry you through. There are two main caves divided by an arena with high grassy cliffs, but there are lots of secret side caves with alters and Buddhas. Out the other side you have the choice of going back the same way, walking round the rock formation to even taking a pony and trap. In the car park there are steps leading up the rock face to view a lake and the rice paddies but as it was the dry season and very hot we didn’t bother. iPad our guide $1 and the Tuk-Tuk from Kep 15

ok if you are in kep and dont know what to do (because beach its not exactly a beach you want to spend time there) you can take a tuktuk tour to see this cave, pepper farms and salk lakes.
Its not something more than a cave. road is too bumpy.

less impressive than Phnom Chhngok

For this 'cave' you can simply climb up the marked path and enjoy the view and have a look at the small altar located inside the cave.

Interesting Exploration
Sep 2019
We decided to hire a tuk tuk from the Crab Market to explore the Trach Cave. It was quite a long and bumpy ride, but we're glad we did it. The caves were very interesting and cool. Thankfully we paid a young boy to guide us that we met in the car park. If you have the time and want to explore something, I recommend the caves. Bring water and expect to get a little dirty. Wear non-slip shoes.

Could be so much better

As far as limestone caves go it's fairly average, the shrines inside the cave system are interesting, during the wet season access would be non-existant by my best guess.

Biggest issue for a place that has such history between the Bodhivistas and the Khmer Rouge is that it is filled with rubbish and human excrement.

Stop if you have time as we did, but do not go out of your way to see this one.

Nice to break a long journey. In the village way of life which was nice to see. Some children helped show the way and were very good learning English with us.

Okay but maybe not in the wet season

We went here on a day trip from Kep with a Tuk Tuk. It was a long day and a long drive in a Tuk Tuk (we stopped at various other places). The local kids on bikes great you as you drive in and want to show you around for $1 but will happily take anything you give them. It's their 'job' and helps them and their families so worth doing. We ended up with 2 guides and they were smart and funny and worth the conversation. As we went at the end of the rainy season a lot of it was still flooded and you couldn't access it. Worth seeing when there and in the dry season I think this cave would be amazing to see - just couldn't see much in the wet.

Bit of a drive from Kep. Once we arrived paid young local to take us through the caves. They were good only downside is the rain had blocked a few areas, so we couldn’t access

A nice place to see the nature

I went there during Khmer New Year in 2018 with family. It is not only about tourism place, but it also has a Buddhism pagoda that we are all can pray for happiness.
