Caves, nothing special. A bit off the tracks. Anoying people around the caves who want to be your guide for about 10$. Didn't like the behavior of this gentleman. Only nice guy was the deaf man, really. Although he can't speak a word he tried everything to show us and he didn't expect much money. We gave him 10 $... More

It was there in Kep I really love it, it's a unique place and it's also interesting with the story from the local young children, it was my beautiful time in Kep

On the way to Kep, we stop by to visit this place. I know very little about this place. It's very nice and I spent very short time to walk around, it is not big. Over crowd during Pchum Ben holiday. Definitely be back there again...

We visited this cave by chance as we know little about it. The limestone cave is not as grand as those around Halong Bay but does have its own charm. The surrounding holds provide some memorable scenery but the cave itself presented an almost surreal experience. Entry is through a quite small, but easily managable, entrance. Further into the cave... More

Riding bike from Kep to these caves was real fun. Wasnt too crowded. There were english speaking guides who told mythical stories about the caves.

Some historical value, but doubt on the authenticity of the stories. Recent KR stories are true. Give the local kids a a tip some speak decent english.

This area is another example of adventure hidden in plain sight in an area many tourists wrongly dismiss as "boring Kampot and Kep." In this case, the cave openings, and there are many, dotting the higher elevation areas of the mountains are literally right in front of your face from the road. The motorbike ride to this area from Kampot... More

The caves were OK but really not that interesting. Some parts of the cave have paint on the walls and they are really not all that outstanding to see. The local school kids tag along as 'guides' with torches and hence you pay them a tip for guiding you through. There is also a small admission charge to view the... More

Have been to a few caves over my years but this is the least impressive I have seen. If you have not been to a cave system before you will probably enjoy this but if you have you will probably have the same thoughts as me.
