What to do around Khla Lodge ?
Visit a Kampot pepper farm
Kampot pepper is recognized as the best in the world. You don't know anything about pepper growing and are interested in this subject? Khla Lodge can arrange for you a visit to a farm with its partner producer. The Khla brand also markets its spices.
Visit the salt marshes of the Kampot Delta
The city of Kampot is located on the banks of the Teuk Chhou River. Khla Lodge is located upstream on the small arm of the river. This river separates when it reaches the town and forms a delta suitable for the exploitation of salt marshes. The work of the salt by the families of farmers is a very picturesque and authentic spectacle. Khla Lodge can organize a visit to the salt marshes.
The Bokor mountain station
Created in the 1920s to allow French civil servants to rest in the cool, this mountain resort is a very popular place for tourists and Khmer people alike. After 33 kms of mountain road through the Preah Monivong National Park, the arrival on this 1000 meter high plateau offers a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Siam. In turn abandoned then restored, there are a few buildings such as a recently restored palace, a Catholic church martyred by the Khmer Rouge, former residences of King Sihanouk in the 60s, a pagoda, the waterfalls of Popokvil, Bokor is a strange place whose soul must have been hard to define. Interesting, however, to spend a day in the cool.
Phnom Chhngok Cave
At 30mn of tuktuk from Kampot are the caves of Phnom Chhnok. The hills ("Phnom" in Khmer) of this area have a number of caves including this one. Easily accessible, one must first climb the Phnom which allows a magnificent view from its summit, before going into the natural excavation. It is said that some concretions inside the cave have animal forms, but the most surprising is to discover at the end of the journey a small brick temple of the 7th century dedicated to Shiva.
Kep crab market
Kep était une station balnéaire très réputée dans les années 60, on y découvre d'ailleurs de nombreuses ruines de villas de cette période, la plupart hélas dévastées par les Khmers rouges.
