Assault On Aoral
Climb the highest mountain in Cambodia, in one of the country’s most remote areas. When climbing the mountain you’ll be following well established tracks, originally cut by wild pigs not people. Enjoy trekking through an area of dense vegetation, abundant in fauna and flora. This is no walk for the unprepared, as the mountain rises over 1600 metres in less than 10 kilometres. All the equipment to make camp is carried by local hunters, who act as porters, with a local guide to lead the expedition through tree cover so thick that GPS units and sat phones just don’t work.
Difficulty Level Strenuous
Max Group Size Small Group
We offer tiered pricing according to group size, enabling exclusive experiences for solo and couple experiences, as well as small group adventures. We do not operate group sizes of more than 6 people in general, as we believe smaller groups have less environmental impact on the mountain.
Cresting the Country’s Highest Peak.
A pleasure that speaks for itself, climb a peak that is higher than Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, and is still almost completely unknown to the outside world.
The Sights and Sounds of the living Jungle.
Little of the jungle that covers the mountain has had any interference from man and is abundant in wildlife, from pilated gibbon to (rumoured) tiger, wild cow to bush pig.
Driving deep into the Cambodian countryside.
The further you get from Phnom Penh the further into the past you travel. And the Cambodian countryside is of particular natural beauty.
The Cambodian Rural Experience.
Stay in a remote Cambodian village and experience the country’s rural traditions. See a way of life that has changed little since the Bronze Age, and enjoy spending time in the company of the rural Khmer people, whose warmth and good humour are legendary.
