How to get there
Getting to the mountains from either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh is shockingly easy. While your trip along the road may not be the easiest, the complications are few. You will also not have to spend time waiting for connections. You will need to make but one ascent up the stairs of the bus you take and sit tight until you arrive.
Travel time from Bangkok will be around 8 hours and is the most complex of all the journeys. However, its stopovers and changes are very manageable when you only have six hours to endure
When to go
The Cardamom Mountains receive the heaviest rainfall in the entire country. While the air is very clear after rains pour down, and while you may be able to grab some electric shots of the gloomy clouds rolling in over the treetops, it doesnât make for the best weather to go hiking in. Spirits are inevitably dampened and your shoes remain constantly sludgy. To get the most out of your experience, and to have the water of the waterfalls be a welcome contrast to your hot and sweaty shoulders, plan your trip between the months of October and April.
Proceeds from the hotel go to community upliftment.
Travelling with children
Due to the wild setting and raised structure of the property, children under the age of 13 are not permitted at Shinta Mani Wild.
