Today your tour guide will warmly welcome you at your hotel in Battambang to start this marvelous city and countryside tour. We first visit Phnom Sampeou Mountain, steeped in legend, and topped by Wat Sampeou and a group of caves used as ‘killing caves’ by the Khmer Rouge, containing the skeletal remains of their victims. We will also visit some spectacular natural caves. Ask about the legend of Neang Rumsay Sok. We continue further to visit the great man-hand-made water dam during Khmer Rouge time – Komping Pouy Basin. Kamping Pouy Bassin is located between two mountains, Phnom Ku or Phnom Ta Ngen and Phnom Kamping Pouy - in Ta Nget Village, Ta Kream Srok commune, about 35 kilometers west of the provincial town. This gigantic civil-engineering project
was central to the Khmer Rouge's plan to irrigate the countryside around Battambang. Tragically, the construction of the Kamping Puoy Reservoir resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of people. Unlike the victims of S21 and Choeung Ek most of the deaths on the Kamping Puoy project were caused by malnutrition, disease, overwork or mistreatment. The deaths were in short, preventable. We return back to town.

Trip ends when we will drop you off at your hotel.

What do I need to know?

Battambang Climate;

Cambodia has a tropical monsoon climate. During the rainy season between mid-April and mid-October the Mekong swells and backs into the Tonle Sap (Great Lake), increasing the size of the lake almost threefold. Between November and April winds are less strong and there are higher temperatures (up to 35oC). General information about the climate:

Rainy season: June - October (<31oC)

- Cool season: November- February (>26oC)

- Hot season: March- May : Temperature: from 28oC -35oC

The dry season covers the remaining four months. The city averages approximately 1500 mm of rainfall per year. It will be good to take a daypack, a wide brimmed hat, sunscreen (at least SPF15), a reliable insect repellent, a camera and lots of batteries.

Get Up and Go is doing all possible to make your journey and travel experience an unforgettable one. Weather conditions, we unfortunately cannot control. Our apologies for that!
