Welcome to Central Cardamoms Protected Forest


The nearby Areng Valley, some of whose inhabitants belong to the Khmer Daeum minority community, is home to Asian elephants and the dragonfish (Asian arowana), which is almost extinct in the wild. It also has the world’s second-largest population of critically endangered wild Siamese crocodiles. These toothy critters can grow up to 3.5m long, but don’t eat people, preferring to dine on fish, snakes, frogs and small mammals.
