Kampot Cambodia

Bokor Mountain

Day seven in Kampot, after 5 days exploring with Jim decided to go it alone today.. Destination Bokor Mountain about 15 km from downtown Kampot (home base) the Columns.. After reaching the gates of Bokor Mountain and paying $2000 Reil ( $4:40 US ) I am off headed up the mountain. This road provides an excellent ride up the mountain with lots of tight turns and a chance to open the 250cc up a little, it reminds me a little of some of the roads traveled during my motorcycle tour of Vietnam with less traffic and no buses traveling two a breast trying to get to the next stop before the other.. After traveling twenty kilometres up the mountain I reach the giant Buda, really quite impressive ( see pictures ) with amazing views of country side. A brief stop to take in the views and take some pictures and I am off back down mountain only to find out back at hotel that there is another 7 kilometres I could have gone to take in some waterfall views and a casino where they serve lunch from a small restaurant with great views... Looks like I will head back up tomorrow now that I am starting to feel more comfortable with the area and road traffic.. Until then!

Hey David glad to see you are having a great time. Remember to watch what you eat and don't talk to strange women.
