CHANGKRAN ROY

Changkran Roy Birding Tour and Bird Photographing tour
Birding and Bird Photographing at Changkran Roy Forest

Changkran Roy is one of the last remaining evergreen forests near Siem Reap. Protected by the community and local authorities, it is located about 70km northwest of the city. Its ecotour is managed by people from the local village, with camping and trekking into the protected forest. It is a great escape into the Cambodian countryside as you will be staying overnight in a tent surrounded by forest areas and close to a waterfall. This is a truly wonderful way to experience the natural world and  chance to enjoy bird watching along the forest paths and bird hide (bird feeding station).

  • Camp by a waterfall, listening to nature and staring at the often clean night skies
  • Learn more about the birds, conservation, and local culture.
