Bokor National Park/Cambodia

Introducing Bokor National Park

This 1581-sq-km national park is famed for its abandoned French hill station, refreshingly cool climate and lush primary rainforest. Threatened animals that live in the park include the tiger (photographed in the last decade with camera traps), leopard, Indian elephant, Asiatic black bear, Malayan sun bear, pileated gibbon, pig-tailed macaque, slow loris and pangolin.

A new road up to the old hill station has been completed and is open to the public, while an ambitious resort project at the summit, including a golf course and casino, was well under way when we visited. The big construction works undoubtedly spoil the ambience at the hill station, but the day and overnight treks that have long been a staple of tourism in the park remain popular.
