Our oldest ecotourism project in the little village of Chambok is one of the most successful ecotourism sites in Cambodia.
Located in Kampong Speu province, Chambok offers a unique experience at the outskirts of the Kirirom National Park. You will be staying in homestays and learn about the typical daily life of Cambodian families. Guides will take you on beautiful trekking tours through the forests, for example to the beautiful and famous Chambok waterfall. They know everything about the numerous tree and animal species living in these woods and love sharing their knowledge with you.
The eco-tourism site was established way back in 2002 to support the community’s forestry protection project financially. The community forestry project aims to protect the community forest from illegal logging.

Anlung Pring, a village located in the Southeast of Kampot Province nearby the Vietnamese border, is home to the rare and globally threatened Sarus Crane. It is the tallest flying bird in the world.
A population of these elegant birds occupies the wetlands surrounding Anlung Pring, arriving at the site in late November and remaining there until early May before migrating North to their breeding grounds. Habitat loss and degradation caused by wetland encroachment, as well as unsustainable exploitation threatens the Sarus Crane. In 2011, the Anlung Pring Sarus Crane Reserve was established to provide protection for the habitat of the Sarus Crane and other bird species in these wetlands. Later, the eco-tourism site was founded to provide an alternative income to the community members, who were living from growing rice and collecting animals, fish and raw materials within the conservation area.
Today, beautiful and breath taking landscapes, unique wildlife and various activities welcome not only bird lovers. There is a lot to discover!

Our newest eco-tourism project is located in Battambang province near the Thai border. Only in 2013, several waterfalls were discovered by the local community. Guests are invited to explore the jungle’s waterfalls and to go camping.
The Community-Based Ecotourism site of O Chorm is a popular destination for Cambodian and international tourists looking to experience luscious nature as a welcome contrast to the city life of Battambang. At O Chorm visitors await thick forest and several waterfalls to cool oneself of from exploring the area. Rest for a picnic, go for a swim and discover wildlife. Those who wish to stay a while, are invited to make themselves feel at home in one of the community’s family houses.
As the area has only recently opened up to the outside world and is only now well reachable by car or motorbike, the nature and wildlife is mostly untouched. Trekking through the forest like an explorer is guaranteed at O Chorm.
Mlup Baitong is active in the village of O Chorm as an advisor since 2005 and helped the community set up the Community-Based Ecotourism site in 2018.
