Cardamom Mountains Trek (13 Days) This pioneering adventure takes us into the environmental jewel of Cambodia, the Cardamom Mountains - one of South East Asia’s last immense and largely unexplored rainforest landscapes and a natural area of universal importance. The Cardamoms is also home to vast array of endangered wildlife which are protected by the thick jungles and extensive mountains. On this unique trekking expedition we are privileged to enter this wild domain and be actively involved in learning about and helping international efforts to conserve the area. Our participation will directly contribute to conserving and alleviating poverty in this unique and precious landscape. We also explore the cultural highlights of Cambodia by visiting Siem Reap, home of the amazing Angkor Empire - probably the foremost archaeological site in South East Asia, and the vibrant capital city of Phnom Penh. This is the complete Cambodian experience that encompasses history and culture, as well as nature and wilderness.
