“Great climbing”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

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 however much you think you should.

“An interesting and adventurous experience”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

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 down into the cave with a small brick temple inside and some interesting rock formation in animal shapes. We took the challenging way out because the cave did not have more to offer. The path was treacherous and we had to climb rocks in the dark which was impossible without a torch. We (2 adults and 3 kids aged 13, 10 and 6) all wearing thongs managed to exit out this way with the help of the boy and our tuk tuk driver. The kids enjoyed this little adventure which they considered the fun part of the cave visit, however we don’t encourage anyone to do that without prior hiking experience. At the end we were happy to pay the boy $2.

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

“just about worth the dollar and tips”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

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 like a wc from the outside! However the stalagtights/mights inside are worth a look (just bring a torch). The guilds will show you rock shapes of various animals, some less suspect than others. Be warned if its quiet a few will appear trying to help you each asking for an individual tip at the end, (so if you're in a group or a couple each give some rather than on give for all) and will do their best to get more from you. Local cafe in complex OK for price of drinks.

“Well worth a Look”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We did the day tuktuk tour from Rikitikitavi like many others. The countryside on the way to the caves is simply gorgeous. Lush green rice fields, friendly locals and an opportunity to see suburban countryside life. The caves are a small climb and done in conjunction with the salt fields, pepper plantation and the town of Kep make for a great day out.
