Cave Pagodas

Heading out from Kep, journey into the surrounding countryside. We stop first at Phnom Chhnork, a large cave that contains a 7th century brick temple in remarkable condition. We then stop at the cave complex of Phnom Sorsia, a holy mountain peppered with shrines and grottoes.

After lunch we continue on to the little town of Kompong Trach. For a long time this place was forgotten, as the civil war kept it off the map, but the new border crossing with Vietnam has seen a bit of a boom. We stop at the interesting cave temple of Wat Kirisan, built into the base of Phnom Sor. We travel through a small cave to a hidden chamber open to the elements, the sheer walls dripping with foliage. There are several hidden shrines here, as well as the Cave of a Thousand Rice Fields, where locals claim the limestone looks like terraces. Later we return to Kep or check in to a hotel in Kampot.
