It was my last day in Cambodia, and my last chance to explore the countryside around Kep. Since Kep is so close to Kampot, it’s really the same countryside. But I would visit different places today.
I rode to Phnom Sorrsir, or White Elephant Cave. Once again I turned the guide down. I wasn’t too excited about another cave, so I figured I would just walk around the temple complex. There were some decent views from the hill. I eventually found the cave, so I went in. The trail was clear and it was not dark, so a guide is not really necessary.
Next I rode to Phnom Salei, with its 326 steps up a lone hill among the rice fields. The climb made me sweaty, and the view from the top was obscured by trees.
I rode to nearby Kampot Trach town to get some lunch. Then I went to look for a nearby beach. But that’s the next installment…
