Mekong Adventure Itinerary

Day 1 We depart Siem Reap by private car into the jungles to the lost city of Koh Ker where we will explore the ancient pyramid temple located at the center of this once great kingdom. In the afternoon, we will arrive at the Mekong River where we will cross by ferry to Stung Treng, a small town located at the confluence of the Mekong and Sekong Rivers. We will stay overnight at a hotel overlooking the two rivers.

Day 2 We will travel north by car and then by boat to a remote site on the Mekong where we will disembark and begin hiking through thick jungle to a wide rocky expanse where the Mekong drops in a spectacular waterfall over a rocky ledge. After listening to the roar of the powerful river and exploring the numerous drops, we will have lunch and then begin trekking through pristine old growth forests as we ascend a mountain with a great view over the river valley. After the hike, we will board a boat and continue to a small island where we will set up camp on a sandy beach and enjoy dinner around a campfire.

Day 3 We will awake to the sounds of birds and rare freshwater dolphins surfacing around the island. Following breakfast, we begin a kayaking trip down river through the remote flooded forests of Cambodia's amazing Ramsar Wetlands. A boat will provide backup. Many varieties of birds live in these forests and the scenery is unique. We will enjoy lunch at a scenic spot along the river and return to our Stung Treng accommodations in the late afternoon.

Day 4 We will transfer by car to the Mekong River north of the Silk Islands and from there board a comfortable 2-deck boat. We will enjoy a picnic and swim at a sandy beach on the tip of the northern-most island and make numerous excursions on the islands including visits to an island pagoda, local silk weaving communities, farms, villages and schools before continuing the journey to Phnom Penh, enjoying great views of river life, fishing practices, a floating village, the four rivers region and the city. We will be able to watch the sunset over the river while enjoying a BBQ dinner and drinks on board before arriving at Phnom Penh.
