Day 1: Arrive in Phnom Penh
This first day you will be introduced to your bikes and the team, you’ll also receive a full briefing of the trip ahead over a few cold beers.
Day 2: Phnom Penh – Sen Monorom
This first stretch will be on the highway as we leave Phom Penh behind and head east to the province of Mondulkiri. Riding the Silk Road that winds up into the mountains, it’s a good chance to get to know your bikes and start enjoying Cambodia’s beautiful countryside.
Day 3: Sen Monorom – Banlung (via Bou Sra waterfall)
After an early breakfast we will ride down to the stunning Bou Sra waterfall, leaving the tarmac roads behind. Here we can throw another coffee down our necks before saddling up for a hard day of off roading, visiting some local hill tribes along the way.
Day 4: Banlung rest day
The capital of Ratanakiri, Banlung is home to the spectacular Yeak Laom volcanic lake. Placed in the midst of dense tropical forest, the turquoise water will be a refreshing break before another hard day off road tomorrow. Banlung also has some great waterfalls, one 30 feet high where any brave group members will be able to take the leap into the water below.
Day 5: Banlung – Stung Treng
Riding some of the best trails in the country and crossing multiple rivers we will head north to the Laos border before looping round to follow the Mekong south to the riverside town of Stung Treng. Here we will enjoy some cold beers on the banks of the mighty Mekong whilst watching the sun set over the river.
Day 6: Stung Treng – Srae Em
You will get the chance to take it a little easier on this easy going and scenic ride. We’ll cross the Mekong by ferry in the morning and travel on wide dirt roads towards T’Baeng Meanchey. Here you will get to be immersed in the real Cambodia, passing through remote villages and rivers along the way. After stopping in T’Bang Meanchey for lunch we’ll continue on to Srae Em where we’ll get well rested in preparation for the last days riding.
Day 7: Srae Em – Koh Ker – Siem Reap
A great final day of riding today. Hitting the dirt trails early we’ll ride through to Koh Ker where we’ll stop to visit Prasat Thom temple and have lunch. We’ll arrive in Siem Reap late afternoon and enjoy some much needed refreshments by the pool. Of course it wouldn’t be a trip to Cambodia without
experiencing some of the traditional Khmer dancing, so in the evening we will all meet for dinner whilst watching an Apsara show.
Day 8: Rest day and Angkor Wat temple complex
It is up to you where you go from here. Whether you want to lay by the pool all day, do a spot of shopping at the markets and explore the city, explore the ancient temples of Angkor, or do all three.
