About this event

Cambodia used to experience civil war in 1970s. After Khmer Rouge, the government has tried very hard to develop the country with peace again. Over the last thirty years, Cambodian people, especially older generation still feeling secure to go into the forest or rarely visit anywhere that is quiet. On the contrary, the younger generation are more courageous and adventurous. These young people keep exploring Cambodia’s natural places, and their new trend is camping and trekking.

However, there are still some challenges for these young people because there is still lack of information on location details. some ideas of the many more hidden beautiful nature that they can visit in Cambodia, unspoiled and authentic. We would like to make them aware that it is now safe to visit new natural sites that they have never been to, especially in the forest if there is proper preparation.
