Program

Day 1: Phnom Penh to Senmonorom

After a short introduction to the mighty FTR, you will start climbing to the city of Senmonorom on the beautiful windy road crossing Keo Seima, a protected forest. Visit Boo Sra Waterfall, arguably the most impressive waterfall in Cambodia with its 2 stage 20 meters wide and 18-25 meters height waterfalls. Here, you will spend as much time as you want, like swimming and relaxing before going back to Senmonorom. You will be riding for about three to four hours.

Day 2: Senmonorom

You will visit Elephant Valley Project where previously working elephants are now roaming free under the care of the project staff. You will take a pleasant tour of the surrounding hills and have sunset dinner with a 360-degree view of the area. You will ride for about three hours today.

Day 3: Senmonorom to Banlung

National Route 76 is taking you through some of the most spectacular forest views in Cambodia to the sparsely populated province of Ratanakiri, the land of some ethnic groups in Cambodia. Today, you will visit Lake Yeak Laom, a small lake situated in a volcanic crater surrounded by rainforest. You will ride for approximately four hours today.

Day 4: Banlung

You are leaving the FTR behind in favor of a visit by foot to the area, a short hike in the forest, as well as a visit to ethnic villages and forest camping accompanied by a local ranger.

Day 5: Banlung to Stung Treng

You will leave the forest back to Banlung. After a well-deserved shower, you will head to the mighty Mekong. You will cross the river and head to the “Secret Sunset Beach” where you can spot the extremely rare Mekong dolphin and enjoy the sunset at the same time. You will also visit the mighty Mekong falls of course. You will be on the road for about four hours.

Day 6: Stung Treng to Kratié

You will travel to the laid back, less visited town of Kratié, situated on the Mekong banks. The Mekong in this area is also home to the largest remaining population of Mekong dolphin. Here, you will take a kayak tour to the flooded forest where trees have adapted special root formations to cope with the Mekong strong currents. Kayaking on the Mekong is normally available during the dry season from December to June.

Day 7: Kratié to Kampong Cham

You will travel to Kampong Cham or the “Port of the Cham”, while strictly keeping the routes parallel to the Mekong River. The Cham people had great influence in the area and their history is rooted in the history of the Khmer people.

In ancient times, the Chams played a key role controlling major trade routes, including what is now known as the Silk Route. You will stop in some Cham villages on the way. After lunch, you will visit Phnom Pros and Phnom Srey Temples and Wat Nokor as well. Later on, you will cross the Mekong via a massive bamboo bridge. You will be on the road between three and five hours.

Day 8: Kampong Cham to Phnom Penh

Start the day by following the Mekong until reaching Phnom Penh. Depending on the season and your taste, Ride Wild Cambodia will let you choose between a few different attractions in the capital such as a cyclo tour to the Royal Palace, Tuol Sleng, Wat Phnom, or visit to the notorious killing fields. You will ride for about four hours.

Day 9: Phnom Penh to Takéo

You will continue your journey to Takéo town on a scenic, mainly paved road, snaking along the Mekong River. On the way, you will visit the temples of Phnom Chisor and Phnom Da. Phnom Da is a small Pre Angkorian temple, built on the top of a small hill in the 6th century by King Rutravarman, who reigned during the Norkor Phnom period.

According to the French historian, Mibreno, it is said to be the first temple built in Cambodia. The sceneries from the top of the mount are a nice bonus, especially in the rainy season from July to November. From here, you will put yourselves and the bikes on a boat and cruise to Takéo town where you will spend the night. You will be on the road for about four hours.

Day 10: Takéo to Kep

Traveling from Takéo to Kep, you will visit a few interesting sites including Sarus Crane wetland conservation site in Anlung Pring. This project is operated by the government and the local community. Here, at the right season, you can spot the endangered Sarus Crane, the tallest standing bird in the world, Kampong Trach caves and lake, and a pepper plantation.

Kampot Province is known for its award-winning black pepper. It has even received the prestigious geographical indication status which designates and protects a product coming from a specific geographical area and which particular quality, reputation, or other characteristics can be linked directly with this geographical origin.

Kep town used to be the jewel of the French colonial era and has some unique energy to it. You will spend the night here after dinner at the famous “crab market”. You will ride for three hours.

Day 11: Kep to Kampot

After breakfast, you will reach Kampot passing by Kep National Park and the “Secret Lake”. You will then cross this laid-back town and climb Bokor Mountain in the saddle of the motorcycle. Here, you can have a glimpse of the pick of the French colonial time. Colonial buildings (hotel and casino, church, royal residence, etc.) were constructed at the top of the mountain to create a mountain luxury resort and retreat for colonial residents in the early 1920s. You will be on the road for about five hours.

Day 12: Kampot to Ream National Park

Ream National Park is a relatively unknown spot. Traveling to Ream National Park on what people like to call “The Mangrove Trail” is a very nice experience with a good chance to see big birds such as cranes, falcons, and eagles. You will sleep only 100 meters from the water on a nice secluded beach. You will ride for about five hours.

Day 13: Ream National Park to Sihanoukville

In the morning and after breakfast, you will do some riding along the park and reach Kabal Chay Waterfall, and then enjoy some excellent coastline at the “Secret Beach”. You will then join Otres Beach for a lunch in front of the sea.

In the evening, only 7 kilometers (4 miles) from there, you will reach the town of Sihanoukville (Krong Preah Sihanouk), which was named in honor of former King Norodom Sihanouk. Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s main seaport and also a tourism hub. Here, you will have dinner at the Chez Claude restaurant overlooking the town. You will ride for approximately four hours.

Day 14: Sihanoukville

After breakfast, you will head to the water for a snorkeling island tour with some pleasant island barbecue. The tour ends today and you can party till late.
