OVERVIEW

Explore remote villages of the Virachey National Park

The Community Protected Area (CPA) of Mondul Yorn was set up in 2004 with the support of SCW. To help local communities to diversify income and prevent further logging of timber in 2013 a community based ecototourism element was introduced. The site is based in a remote O’Tabok river on the outskirts of Virachey National Park. It is an ideal site for those seeking to explore remote and unspoiled part of Cambodia
