    What roads are you using to get through Aural? Gecko map shows road 44 out of Kampong Speu to Phum Roleax Kang Cheung, and then a trail via Thma Bang and Ruessei Chrum to link up to with Road 48 to koh kong. Is this the route?

    I was thinking about doing the cardamons ride around the same time, will it be dry enough in late december to cross all the rivers?

    starting off on road 44 yes, but then turning off about 10km before the hot springs (it says Tasal on the Gecko Map but doesn't show the trail) Then through Chhay Riep, and Kamlot to Thmor Bang.

    end of december shouldn't be a problem regarding water crossings; we have another trip starting on the 15th this month so will be able to update on conditions then...

    BTW our webhosts have gone bust and left us stranded so our website will be offline until we can get everything resolved... :-(

    Hi I'm based in HK and would be really interested in joining a 5-6 day tour in Cambodia. Is there a number I can call you on to discuss? If you can, my number is +852 94708442.
    Look forward to your earliest reply. Cheers. William

    As promised I am back.. probably a bit late though sorry!

    The water crossings are fine at the moment; the highest one is the one just before O'Saom but there was no need to use the car inner tube that had been brought along for the trip :) just a couple of sticks through each rim and the bikes were lifted through without a problem. Paeng and Leng also made a makeshift underwater bridge with a few planks and rocks to make it easier to wheel the bike through next time; we'll see if it's still there on the 28th!

    Following the rainy season things were pretty overgrown (with a few piles of young trees which the locals had cleared and left in the middle of the 'road' but with the help of our machete, the trail should be a bit clearer for the next few weeks :) You'll still need to keep an eye out for hanging vines though, which can snare you and pull you off the bike...
