Detailed tour program

Aural is the highest peak in Cambodia (1813m), sitting in the Eastern section of the Cardamom Mountains. The Cardamom Mountain Range, in Western Cambodia, has great off-the-beaten-track hiking on offer.

Climbing Experience

The terrain of Mount Aural can be split into 2 district sections; the dusty road and bamboo forests. The road takes an average of 2 hours to complete. It is a relatively pleasant walk which is not seen as a challenge to most climbers. The longest section, the bamboo forest is steep and requires good physical fitness to complete, especially if the weather is humid. It usually takes climbers 5 hours to walk through the dense forest before reaching the top of Aural.
The ascent starts with an uphill road which is used for the transportation of logs. The road is pretty dusty in the dry season and the elevation throughout this section is around 200 meters which is usually not too challenging for climbers. Watch out for trucks winding down the road at high speeds. The road becomes sludgy and sometimes slippery after rainfall. It takes an average of 2 hours for climbers to reach camp 1 from the beginning of the dusty road.
At the top of the logging road, climbers will reach camp 1 which is where the forest starts. Many animals have been spotted in the forest including monkeys, boars, bears, birds and several species of big cats including leopards and the Asian golden cat. Climbers are advised to carry insect repellent as mosquitoes in the forest can become a problem. The walk through the steep bamboo forest takes an average of 5 hours.
