Koh Kong province is located at the far south-west of Cambodia. Once under Thai administration the territory was returned to Cambodia after the Washington Accord of 1946. Koh Kong town is located at the south of the Cardamon Mountains, a dense tropical rain forest that remains largely inaccessible and where tourism development is very limited.
Koh Kong has an abundant wildlife and plentiful waterways. Promising ecotourism initiatives have established basic operations in the area while most of the region and coastline remain somehow undeveloped. The region has rivers, waterfalls, jungles, mountains and islands, making it a very versatile destination.
Koh Kong Island is the largest in Cambodia. This tropical paradise has seven beaches with crystal clear water and a lovely fishing village called Alatang located on the south-east corner of the Island.
The Tatai River runs through the Cardamom Mountains and flows into the Peam Krasaop Wildlife Sanctuary. A rocky cascade flows all year around and during the dry season it is possible to swim in the naturally formed pools in the river. The water is incredibly clear and the area is perfect for trekking enthusiast although it is also possible to access the waterfalls by boat.
