Aural Mountains Cambodian Laughingthrush Tour

Search for the elusive Cambodian Laughingthrush on Aural Mountain. WARNING- tough birding not for the faint of heart.



4 Days



Nov - May

Peak season

Nov - May

Starting Point

Phnom Penh

Explore Aural Mountain in search for one of Cambodia's true endemic species, Cambodian Laughingthrush. The 4 day trip will include an accent of Cambodia's highest peak (1813m elevation) in thick evergreen forest. This is as far off the beaten track that is possible in Cambodia as you will be sleeping in hammocks in make-shift forest camps and eating simple food. Therefore, this tour is not for the faint of heart and we recommend you be in good physical condition. If you accept the challenge, this is one of our most rewarding birding trips in Cambodia that you won't forget in a hurry.
