Chambok is a community of 9 rural villages where visitors can experience village-life, and explore the area’s beautiful natural surroundings. Spend the night with a local family in one of our home-stays and immerse yourself in the rural lifestyle. The 761 families who live in Chambok are mostly farmers with smallholdings, growing rice and vegetables while also raising a few cows, chickens and pigs. Since 2003, the Chambok community has protected 1,260 hectares of forestland from logging and hunting. The community based eco-tourism project is managed by the villagers themselves, and as all revenues from eco-tourism stay in the community, this alternative source of income helps villagers protect the forest and manage it in a sustainable way for future generations.
There’s lots to see & do! Trek to our 40-meter high waterfall, have a swim, go for an ox-cart ride, rent a bicycle, or learn how to make traditional crafts. You can also sample Cambodian cuisine in our women-run restaurant, serving locally sourced and freshly prepared food. We can also arrange 2 or 3 day treks with local guides, camping out overnight in the forest.
How to get there:
We’re located on the border of the Kirirom National Park in southwest Cambodia, an area of forest, waterfalls and rice fields – located 2 hours from Phnom Penh towards Sihanoukville.
