Beautiful and moving, a steady stream of bats exiting their caves into the evening sky, like a plume of black smoke that continues across the pink sky for 30 or more minutes. Wow!

Estimated to be approx 6 million bats living in the cave, it's quite a site to see them start coming out and then swarm into (a Swallow like) formation as they fly off to the paddy fields to feed. Never seen anything like it --...More

A great experience as millions of bats pour out of a hill side cave to feed on the insects. Sit down by the side of the road and grab yourself a cold drink and enjoy!!

Very nice to see the bats. The temple and especially the view from the hill are also a must do, when in Battambang.
