Arriving around noon in Chambok, you’ll be taken to your homestay and meet the family who live there. We’ll then head to the information center and explain the history of the Chambok villages, and offer some insight into how the locals live today. You’ll then get a lesson in traditional cooking from some of the women who run the Women’s Restaurant co-operative.
After lunch, you and your guide will go for a cycle ride around the Chambok villages, meeting some of the locals along the way and getting a feel for rural village life. From July to December, you can also walk in the rice fields and learn how to grow and harvest rice. Next, we’ll travel by tractor to the nearby area of Anlong Rorth where you’ll walk through a forest up to a lookout point where you have a great view over the villages. Then we’ll walk down and you’ll have a chance to go swimming in the river.
Early evening, we’ll return to the information center to see some local children perform traditional Khmer dancing. You’ll then have dinner before returning to your homestay where you can chat with the homestay family before bedtime.
After breakfast, you’ll go with your guide on a day hike of 12km up through the forest to the top of a waterfall for a great view from the edge of the mountain over the villages, forest and rice fields. A bit further one, we’ll go swimming by a waterfall, eat a picnic lunch and have time to relax in hammocks under the trees.
Early evening, we’ll return to Chambok for dinner before spending the night at your homestay.
After breakfast, we’ll travel by ox-cart for 1.5km before continuing on foot, climbing up through the forest. On this 3-hour hike, a local guide will take you to three waterfalls and a bat cave and explain more about the local plants and wildlife. At the end of the hike, the ox-cart will take you back to the Information Center for a well-earned lunch.
After lunch, you’ll have some time to yourself for an hour. Then, some local women will teach you to make traditional handicrafts, such as bracelets and necklaces, using natural materials from the forest.
After dinner, we will celebrate your last evening with a small party for you where the locals will show you how to do a Khmer dance. Then you’ll return to your homestay to sleep.
In the morning, you’ll say goodbye to your homestay family and go to the Information Center for breakfast. Afterwards, you’ll say goodbye to the community before leaving.
