Dates & Prices

Day 1: Siem Reap

Airport transfer/getting settled into your hotel/meet fellow riders, then off to the temples for the day. We will arrange a guide and transport for you, so you have a chance to learn about this amazing country’s history. Then we’ll meet for an evening meal and go through the tour itinerary. You will be staying in a comfortable boutique hotel.

Day 2: Siem Reap to Anlong Veng

Awesome single track leading out of Siem Reap into the surrounding forests. We will then make our way to Anlong Veng through dense forest, sandy trails and river crossings. We will arrive in the ex Khmer rouge stronghold of Anlong Veng, where you can see how Pol Pot’s army were driven back to into Thailand. Staying in a hotel with aircon and hot water

Day 3: Anlong Veng to Preah Vihear

After Breakfast we will ride up the mountain to see Pol Pot’s Grave, where there are some great views over the town. If there is time we can go & see Pol Pot's house. A fun ride through the forest. We will then follow the Dangrek mountains to the mountaintop temple of Preah Vihear on the Thai Border. Spectacular Views from the top. Then back into town, we will be staying in a hotel with air-con and hot water

Day 4: Preah Vihear to Kompong Sra Lao

In the morning we can ride up the mountain to see Preah Vihear temple. It is only tarmac, but it is still a fun ride up. Today we will be mainly riding red dirt roads as we head east towards Stung Treng Province and then up near the Laos border to our stop for the night. You have the choice to camp or stay in a local Guesthouse with great views. We will be close to the Lao border and the Preah Rumkel Waterfall and rapids.

Day 5: Kompong Sra Lao to Ban Lung

After a 30 minute longboat trip crossing the Mekong River, we will start the ride on about about 100km of graded dirt roads after which it will be about 100km of single track through the jungle. Conditions will be sandy with muddy sections if it has been raining. It will be another long day of riding. We will be staying in a pleasant hilltop resort with a pool and great views. We are very close to the volcanic crater lake of Yeak Loum, which is a beautiful area with crystal clear waters which are great for swimming.

Day 6: Ban Lung [rest day]

Ban Long is a nice lazy town. Have a swim and chill at the Yeak Laom volcanic lake [highly recommended] or visit any of the numerous waterfalls, or visit a hilltribe village. Up to you. A day of rest and recuperation

Day 7 :Ban Lung to Sen Monorom

This route used to be known as ‘The Death Highway’, and depending on conditions can be very challenging. However a lot of the old trail has been tarmacked so riding the highway is unavoidable in some spots. There are however enough awesome trails, lots of sand [or mud depending when you go] to keep you happy. A long day in the saddle will get you to Sen Monorom; capital of Mondulkiri Province. A cooler climate with lovely rolling hills lead to some great riding towards the end. Depending on the time of year will depend on the route we take as during the wet season some of the hills get so slippery it's like riding on ice. There is the option to jump on the highway if the group deems necessary. Staying in a hotel with air-con and hot water. [option for a luxury resort - after 5 days in the saddle it is a worthy treat!]

Day 8: Sen Monorom to Snuol

Today will be quite a challenging ride. The forest trail we’ll be riding is only around 50km, but there will be sand, maybe some mud, and rocky climbs and descents. Then it will be a short highway section to Snuol; our stop for the night. If we make good time there is also the option to head towards the Vietnamese border through rubber plantations. We will be staying in a hotel with air-con.

Day 9: Snuol to Kampong Cham

More scenic today; small river crossings, rubber plantations, and single track through the forest will lead us back to The Mekong, which we’ll follow into Kampong Cham and civilization...sort of. Staying in a hotel with air-con & hot water.

Day 10: Kampong Cham to Phnom Penh

Today will be more easygoing, following the Mekong river back into Phnom Penh, where the tour finishes. If there is time we could go to the shooting range and you can try your luck with an AK-47 or an RPG [at extra cost of course] A nice way to end the trip is a sunset boat cruise in Phnom Penh on the Mekong river.

Lots of mixed terrain on this ride, but will suit mainly experienced riders as is quite challenging in places. Great for those enduro enthusiasts. One of our favorite rides; a combination of great trails and beautiful scenic countryside makes for an incredibly memorable off-road experience. Each day we'll be riding between 100 and 200 kilometers.
