12 Days Cardamoms Hard Enduro Advanced Motorbike Tour in Cambodia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Land to Sky to Sea Motorcycle Tour Cambodia

This is another epic Enduro adventure. Unlike the 'Over The Top' ride, this tour starts in Phnom Penh so you get to see different parts of the country. There are lots of sand here so ample opportunity to give that throttle a twist! Anything from single track to technical hill-climbs, which turn to muddy bogs in the wet, there will be something to keep everyone happy. This is a true off-road adventure that you will remember for years to come.

Program

You will make your way North West following the train tracks on dual and single tracks. You will then head west into the mountains where the real fun begins. Once through the mountains, you will ride through the beautiful rolling hills of Kirirom National park before making your way down to the coast on more spectacular tracks. Due to the demanding conditions of this tour, it is recommended you are at least an intermediate rider and should have a good level of fitness. You will be riding between 100 and 200 kilometers a day. Expect some awesome technical off-road riding, crazy river and bridge crossings, slippery muddy forest trails and stunning views. There will also be historic sights in Phnom Penh or the beach in Sihanoukville.

Day 1: Phnom Penh

Transfer from airport / get settled into your hotel and meet fellow riders. Kickstart DirtBike Adventures Cambodia can arrange a tour for you to The Killing Fields and The Tuol Sleng S21 Genocide Museum, so you gain an insight into Cambodia’s turbulent past. You will go over the tour itinerary over an evening meal. You will be staying in a comfortable air-con hotel with a pool.

Day 2: Phnom Penh to Kampong Chhnang

Today will be fairly easy-going; to begin with, mainly red dirt roads leading out of Phnom Penh, and then getting sandier as the day goes on. Tackling sandy trails and single track, you should arrive in Kompong Chnang late afternoon, where you can relax in a nice air-con hotel.

Day 3: Kampong Chnang to Pursat

Another fun day consisting of dirt roads and more sandy single track. You will follow the train tracks for a while where there may be the opportunity to load the bikes on one of the famous Bamboo Trains. In the afternoon, you can get a taste of what lies ahead as you cut through some of the nearby mountains. You will be staying in Pursat town in a comfortable hotel.

Day 4: Pursat to O Soum

Things get interesting today as you make your way into the mountains. Roads will get more technical with river crossings and rutted, rocky climbs, and some great forest trails. There are some awesome views as you climb into the small community of O Soum. You will stay in a local guesthouse, but with some good grub. It will be a lot cooler away from the heat of central Cambodia. Get a good-night kip as tomorrow is a long day.

Day 5: O Soum to Koh Kong

Today the riding isn’t as technical as you have to jump on the graded Chinese built dirt road that links the new hydropower dams. The old route was so mashed up that only a few groups would make it and since then most tour groups use the Chinese road, so it has become impassable. There will be some amazing views and the riding is still entertaining. If you lose your concentration for a second, you’ll be down a gulley.

There are a couple of sections that are a bit more chopped up with some nice climbs/descents. Unlike the ride in June, you are planning to extend the ride after the big river crossing. There are a couple of options, either more graded roads or more technical riding. You will see how the group feels. This extension should bring you into Koh Kong around 16:00. A nice hotel overlooking the estuary near the Thai border will be your accommodation for the night, Koh Kong.

Day 6: Koh Kong (rest day)

After five days of riding, you’ll need a little R&R, as will the bikes, so you’ll be doing some work on them while you can just relax or check out some of the nearby waterfalls and rapids. You can either chill on the riverside at the comfy restaurant or you can explore the town yourself. You can also cross the estuary and go to the beach for a swim near Thailand, where there is also a casino if you want to try your luck.

Day 7: Koh Kong to Chipat

If you want extreme, there are several technical climbs for you, lots of dodgy bridges, slippery single track, and river crossings. This is probably one of the best trails through the Cardamoms. You will be staying in a charming rural village homestay in the village of Chipat, which is the gateway to the Aural National Park. There are rapids nearby where you can end the day with a nice refreshing swim.

You will find some of the most untouched parts of Cambodia here, with new species being found all the time. This is rapidly changing with the onset of deforestation and development in the region. You will be staying at the local village guesthouse/homestay.

Day 8: Chipat to Kiriom

Today there is a wide range of terrain, more rocky climbs, single trail, slippery forest trails, and fun river crossings. The day will start on the single track, which will be sandy or muddy depending on the weather, and as the day goes on will become more challenging with some nice technical sections as you are near Kiriom National Park, where there is a wide range of terrain. Here you have the option to camp or stay in a nice air-con hotel with a pool. It’s a fun ride today.

Day 9: Kiriom to Kampot

Once you leave the national park, you will head south following the Elephant Mountains to the town of Kampot. There is a lot of sand to begin with, with more fabulous singletrack. If you are up for the challenge there are a couple of hill climbs you can have a go at on the way. Once in town, you can catch the sunset on the riverfront with a few cold beers, after which you will stay at a beautiful hotel on the banks of the river shadowed by Bokor Mountain.

Day 10: Kampot to Kep (Rabbit Island)

Today’s ride will be short but exciting as you will make your way to Kep through the nearby hills and mountains. Great single track through river crossings, interlinking hillside temples, and mysterious caves should keep you occupied. There is even an ancient Angkorian temple inside one of these caves. You will stay on Rabbit Island, leaving the bikes on the mainland. Kick off your riding boots, relax and enjoy the beach and delicious fresh seafood. It’s a paradise!

Day 11: Kep to Sihanoukville or Phnom Penh

You have the option to return to Phnom Penh, or continue the tour down to Sihanoukville. Today will bring mainly dirt and single track in either direction. The beach awaits in Sihanoukville, and you will go via Phnom Bokor in Kampot, which offers some fabulous views over the coast. Or, if you take the Phnom Penh route, you have options to go to the shooting range and try your hand at an AK-47 or an RPG, or a chilled boat cruise on the Mekong in Phnom Penh.

Today is your departure day.
