  1. Day 1 – Arrival 30th October 2018

    Arrive Siem Reap.

    Collected from airport, poolside beers in your hotel.
    Briefing and paperwork. Tuk tuks into town and pub street.

    Then 7pm Welcome dinner.

    Team early to bed!

  2. Day 2 – Riding 31st October 2018
    • Phnom Kulen (140km)

    Bike hand over, followed by the Khmer traditional Buddhist Journey Blessing at a nearby temple in Siem Reap then leave the provincial capital and head out for a great ride to the most sacred of mountains in all Cambodia – Phnom Kulen. Renowned by historians as the birthplace of the mighty Angkor Empire that ruled SE Asia from 802 for just over 600 years. It is on this very mountain that King Jayavarman II, proclaimed his divine right to rule independent of Java, and the last stronghold of the Khmer Rouge when their horrifying regime ended with Vietnamese occupation in 1979.

    Small trails and single tracks. Sand, mud, rock.

    Note: Waterfall with a hundred penises carved into it!

    Night with the locals in a typical Khmer home. All meals included (if time permits).

    All subject to ground conditions at the time, and last minute revisions.

  3. Day 3 – Koh Ker 1st November 2018

    The Great Pyramid Temple – (220km)

    From Phnom Kulen, we hit the sandy trails, heading north for the huge (and only in SE Asia) Pyramid Temple of Koh Ker. An Angkor era temple, it is far less travelled than the temples of Siem Reap, though equally spectacular, buried deep in the rainforest. Will most definitely involve mud, and water.

    A night in the best guesthouse in town (hopefully some hot water).

    All meals included (if time permits).

    All subject to ground conditions at the time, and last minute revisions

  4. Day 4 – Preach Khan 2nd November 2018

    Temple of the Dagger (150km)

    A great ride, travelling south again, back towards the City of Angkor, long a 1000 year old ancient highway. You will rest for the night near a 1000 year old temple (another seat for the Angkor Era god king – Jayavarman.). Lets have some jungle juice, meet the jungle team and neck down some jungle juice. Weak stomachs need not apply!

    Small trails and single tracks.

    One of the largest and less travelled temples in Cambodia.

    BBQ dinner & breakfast.

    All subject to ground conditions at the time, and last minute revisions.

  5. Day 5 – Angkor City 3rd November 2018

    Siem Reap (150km)

    Break camp and head south again back to the luxury of Siem Reap. A quick drink by the pool, and head out for the celebratory farewell dinner.

    All meals included (if time permits).

  6. Day 6 – Till next time 4th November 2018

    Time to head home, with your head filled of tales of derring-do, and a body full of aching muscles.

    Proper work!

Accommodation

The accommodation included is 5 star rated (where available). Please bear in mind that Cambodia has only really had a tourism industry for 17 years, and star ratings may short fall of similar rated hotels in the West.

Your accommodation is included from the evening of the 30th October up until the evening of the 3rd November inclusive.

Based on single supplemented accommodation, including breakfast each morning, and all other meals when time permits.

When out in remote areas, accommodation will be the best available.

 

Amenities

The hotel in Siem Reap will have a swimming pool, bar, restaurant and spa facilities.

 

 

 

 

Whilst we do have a limited array of riding gear, we strongly urge you to bring your own. Mainly because it will probably smell nicer than the hire kit we have available, and it will undoubtedly fit you better too.

Having said that, please don’t turn up in road riding gear, MTB gear, or brand new and ill-fitting riding gear! Ensure you have suitable protection for the high risk sport of off-road motorcycling that you will be embarking upon.

If you need to hire riding gear from us, please let us now before you arrive for your tour.

Official currency is the Cambodian Riel. But you won’t be able to find any outside of Cambodia.

Good job then that the mighty greenback is accepted everywhere here.

So do bring US dollars with you for buying all your beer and souvenirs.

The simple answer is yes. There is a slight risk, but not a very big one, like back in the early days!

We ride tracks that are well used by the locals, except in the jungle, and we steer you clear of areas that have not been demined by the government or NGOs. However, the general advice is that landmines are a danger.

Best advice is listen to the team on the ground each day. Areas that are still being demined will be pointed out to you, and re-iterated wherever necessary.

Yes.

You need to arrive with two! Your license to drive a motorcycle over 250cc from your country of residence, and an International Driving Permit.

These 2 items are used to apply for your Cambodian License! We organise Licenses for all riders, though there is an extra charge for this of $80. The time to issue a license is over a month, so you will not have your License whilst you are riding with us. You will have a receipt for one though, so you will be legal on the road here.

Your Cambodian License will be valid for one year, and we will forward it on to you when we receive it if you so wish (though we might ask you for some more cash to cover the postage!)

Absolutely yes. You must have a travel policy that specifically covers you for medical emergencies and repatriation to your country of treatment should you be involved in an accident whilst travelling on or off road on a motorcycle over 250cc in Cambodia. If you have trouble finding suitable policies, drop us an email and we can put several options in front of you.
