Backyard Travel launches new tour to Cambodia's most remote province

One of Asia's leading online travel companies, Backyard Travel, has announced that it has launched a new tour where travellers will meet indigenous tribes in Cambodia's most remote province.

The four-day trip will start in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, and travel eastwards to the remote province of Mondulkiri where travellers will explore its lush forests and meet members of the Phnong indigenous tribe who make up half of the sparsely populated region.

Tourists will have the chance to learn about the tribe's culture and traditions and meet some of the local hill tribe.

The tour includes a visit to the beautiful cascading Bou Sraa Waterfall and guided walks through the Mondulkiri Protected Forest, where visitors can catch sightings of diverse wildlife such as peacocks, monkeys and hornbills.

During the trip, travellers will visit an NGO centre to learn how they are rescuing elephants from captivity and rehabilitating them back into the wild, and there will be an opportunity to take part in a volunteering project. Maeve Nolan, Backyard Travel's General Manager, explained:

"We think the Mondulkiri Province is one of the unearthed gems of Southeast Asia. At the moment it seems that not many have discovered its beauty, which makes now the perfect time to visit."

The tour starts from $869 per person, based on two people sharing a double or twin room, and includes daily breakfast and four lunches, private and fully guided tours with a Backyard Travel tour guide, transfers in private air conditioned vehicles (with drinking water and cold towels), and all entrance fees to all of the sites along the way.

Backyard Travel is a Bangkok-based company that specialises in providing tours of Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Japan, China and Myanmar.

Additional tours in Cambodia include the ‘A Taste of Cambodia' tour where travellers will enjoy a culinary experience across the country visiting Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and an array of historic attractions such as Angkor Wat, the Ta Prohm temple, and Angkor Thom.
