Into the MistMiles of jungle footpaths make southwestern Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains a hiker’s heaven. One of the last strongholds of the Khmer Rouge regime, the area opened to travelers only two decades ago, and the tropical landscapes of Botum Sakor National Park feel almost unexplored. Conservation groups protect the forests by replanting trees and through aggressive anti-logging efforts. From Phnom Penh, a three-and-a-half-hour bus trip and two-hour boat ride brings you to Chi Phat, where local outfitters offer trekking and kayaking.
