Kamping Pouy

The site of Kam Pinh Puoy hosts one of the most massive infrastructure projects of the Khmer Rouge regime; a massive earth dam built by hand between the hills of Phnom Kul and Phnom Kam Pinh Puoy. Thousands of workers died of malnutrition, disease, overwork, and abuse during the construction of this dam.

Today the artificial lake created is 1.9 km wide and 30 km long, holding some 110 million cubic meters of water. Cambodians like to spend the weekend here and you can enjoy a small boat ride surrounded by water lilies.

There is a 5$ surcharge because this destination is a bit further away.
