Phnom Kampong Trach Caves are located in the South Damnak Kuntuot commune about 38 kilometers east of Kampot provincial town. The site includes caves at the foot of the mountains, as well a number of hills which local people of Cambodian, Chinese and Vietnamese descent use for worship. The limestone caves are relatively big. Inside of the cave you find a big reclining Buddha as well as some smaller statues. Also very interesting is the purple earth. There is also a Swimming Cave with a small lake inside the cave (the 'Swimming Cave'), located about 10min drive from the main cave.
The Anlong Pring bird sanctuary is located in Kampong Trach district, Kampot province. This sanctuary is an official IBA (Important Bird Area), along with over 12,000 IBA’s in 200 countries. Anlong Pring’s IBA is Cambodia’s 2nd Sarus Crane reserve since 6 January 2011. The 1st reserve was established in Takeo province in 2007. The Anlong Pring reserve covers 217 hectares of seasonally inundated grassland. In March 2010, the site held nearly 300 Sarus Cranes, more than 30% of the global population! Still, they can be difficult to spot for visitors. Please note that you can only see the Sarus Crane birds from mid-November until May every year!
