Phnom Krom Marshland
Phnom Krom marshland is considered to be one of the best bird watching sites around Siem Reap. It is located approximately 12km south of the town centre. This open marshland with paddy fields, ponds, bushes, and grassland, stretches out at the edge of the Great Tonle Sap Lake.
It is a great place to find many common bird species, including waterbirds and waders. We aim to see around 40 bird species on this short trip, which can be scheduled for the morning or afternoon.
Include the Chestnut-capped Babbler, Lanceolated Warbler, Siberian Rubythroat, Lesser Coucal, White-shouldered Starling and many waders including Pintail Snipe, Oriental Pratincole, Jacana, Swamphen, bitterns, egrets, herons, and waterfowl.
Birding at Phnom Krom marshland is available all year round and either in the morning from 5.30am to 9.30am or in the afternoon from 2.30pm to 6.30pm.
Best for people to enjoy nature and wildlife with a nice quiet walk into the forest paths of the temple complex. A great combination!
