Welcome to Chi Phat


Chi Phat offers travellers an opportunity to explore the Cardamoms ecosystems while contributing to their conservation and providing an alternative livelihood to the former poachers who now act as the landscape's protectors and guides. Accommodation is in basic homestays and guesthouses, and there's a menu of activities on offer, from birdwatching kayak trips to combo hike-and-mountain-bike expeditions.

Note that the village only has electricity in the morning between 5am and 9am, and in the evening from 6pm to 9pm, so bring a torch (flashlight).
