Lunch Time ( Duration: 2 hours )
We will be rest at Khmer Restaurant to have lunch for one hour and after that we continue to tour.
Phnom Sampeau Mountain (Duration: 3 hours)
Last thing in full day-Battambang tour on the afternoon,we continue the tour in our TukTuk towards Phnom Sampov mountain, It is shrines and killing caves used during the Khmer Rouge period. Enjoy the vast and beautiful scenery and end our journey before sunset and visiting the ‘Bat army’-thousands of bats flying out of their caves in the mountain side at dusk. You’ll get dropped off at the bottom of the mountain and can walk up (it’s easier than taking the stairs).
The walk can be done in flip-flops, but shoes make it easier. The entire walk takes about an hour and is not particularly difficult, although the easiest way to get back down is by a steep set of stairs. You can also pay a moto to take you up, but you will need to take one of the guys that wait at the bottom of the mountain. They have a monopoly and will not let you take the moto or tuk tuk that you arrived in. Around 6 p.m. each night thousands upon thousands of bats stream out of the caves and make a pretty impressive sight. You’ll get the best view of the bat exodus from the road below the mountain.
