Luxury Holidays to the Cardamom Mountains: An Overview

Luxury holidays to the Cardamom Mountains are all about exploring wildlife-rich rainforests, venturing along beautiful hiking trails and visiting faraway rural villages. Offering a treasure trove of unique species of flora and fauna, nature and wildlife lovers will be in their element here.

Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains, once used as a stronghold for Khmer Rouge fighters, are a wonderland of wildlife-rich rainforests, beautiful hiking trails and faraway rural villages. Pack a bag, lace up your walking boots and set off on an adventure into the hills.

For nature and wildlife lovers, the Cardamom Mountains are a seriously cool spot for a green getaway. As one of the largest and still mostly unexplored forests in Southeast Asia, the mountains are a treasure trove of unique species of flora and fauna, many still undocumented by science. While trekking through the wilds, keep your eyes peeled for all manner of mammals - including rare species such as the clouded leopard, Malayan sun bear and Indochinese tiger - as well as some 450 bird species.

While tourism is still relatively new to the Cardamom Mountains, we work with a handful of tented camps that offer a little slice of paradise in the wilderness.
