All About this Tour
Located just 2 hours away from Phnom Penh, stands Cambodian first National Park which once was King Sihanouk favourite retreat spot.
There are no scheduled departures for this trip. But please send us an inquiry telling us when you'd like to go, how many people are in your group, and we'll get back to you shortly.
Leave a busy Phnom Penh behind and head to Happy Mountain, the nickname of Kirirom National Park. Ride single track trails developed by local mountain biking enthusiasts through lush green jungle and ascend up to an altitude where a pine forest has taken over. With an altitude of 700m Kirirom offers a notably cooler temperature than Phnom Penh, making it a popular getaway. Though only 2 hours aways from the capital city, the national park provides protection for many wild animals, including: elephants, deer and wild pigs, though they are rather elusive and tend to stay deep inside the forest. We will transfer the 88 km from Phnom Penh to the start of our ride at Kirirom National Park. Mount your bike and get ready to rock and roll. We will start with an easy flat ride of 10 km to warm up, then the real challenge awaits with a 22 km ride uphill that we estimate to take an hour. If you would like to save your energy, just hop into the supported van for a lift. At the top we start our riding on trails that are used by local clubs for competitive races. We'll take a break for a picnic lunch before the real descent starts. Rested we are ready to hit the trails as we descend to the Kirirom hydroelectric station. Jungle trails will lead us through forest, across streams and past waterfalls. Riding on single track with a mixture of dirt, sand and mud, it's a real mountain biking experience! On this 26 km section there will be no van support as we are riding remote trails. We will carry our own water and snacks and meet the van at the bottom of the hill. After a varied 58 km ride it's time for a quick clean up and then you can rest in our comfortable air-conditioned van, while we transfer you back to Phnom Penh.
