The Mekong Discovery Trail project was launch in 2006 in collaboration withthe Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and a Dutch development organization (SNV). This was aimed at having tourists experience the Mekong River by organising different activities such as kayaking, biking, traditional home stays, trekking, dolphin spotting and camping on the Mekong’s beach. Unfortunately funding for the project ran out in 2012. However, at Cambodia Mekong Trail we are committed to carrying on the legacy of this project and together with local guides provide you with same level of experiences of the life of local people and wildlife.
Our team of local professional, friendly, knowledgable and flexible guides aim to take you into the heart of the Mekong where the beauty of the river and the friendliness of the people create unforgettable river life experiences in northeast Cambodia and make adventure an unforgettable experience. We provide, safe and reliable transportation appropriate for the terrain while offering a range of adventure trips (biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking, homestay and bird watching). There are many options along the 180 km trail, which runs between Kratie and the Cambodian/Laos border provide opportunities to see critically endangered Mekong River Dolphins, take a relaxed cycle through cheerful villages and rice fields, enjoy an exclusive Mekong Camping under the stars on the banks of the mystic Mekong is truly unforgettable. By using the Trail, you will also be assisting river communities, some of the poorest (but most welcoming) in Cambodia.
