Walk-through this beautiful natural setting with Buddhist temples and monks exploring this ancient site for rituals. We asked a Monk to give us a water blessing and it was a wonderful experience. Upon arrival, we purchased incense and flowers for offerings and suggest you do the same to support the locals.

Worth visiting from Kep to see the rural locality on the way. The caves are easily accessible with walkways and various shrines. They are well lit and airy. There are local food options and basic toilets available. We spent about an hour here looking in to the two temples outside too. There was no costs apart from optional donation boxes.

There is an assembly of limestone hills covered in Jungle amidst of rice fields. In one of the hills there is this network of caves with its shrines. One of them is filled with a small lake. There is a kind old lady who shows you around. She is takes you on a climbing tour to the best spots and points out the best photo motives. I gave her a generous tip at the end.

Worth the visit to see a cave network with buddha statues and praying monks. Spectacular cliffs and cool breezy caves.

Went there with no expectations and really enjoyed it. Very nice limestone formation with a network of caves that is bigger than it seems, dotted with Buddhist shrines . View of the Countryside and rock formations from the upper cave is fantastic. There are also bats hanging around and the rock pool, which was not full enough for a good swim (it’s been a very dry rainy season)

Best to stop there on your way to or back from Phnom Penh as a tuk tuk ride from kampot or kep would be far away.
It’s also best to go during or just after the rainy season so that the countryside is glowing and the rock pool is full.

Maybe things have changed. From Kep our tuk-Tuk driver took the main sea road towards Phnom Penh up to Kampong Track Market where we turned left along a cement block road and only a short bit of dust track. Children were waiting near the entrance to the caves and no torches as now there is lighting inside, maybe took a bit of adventure away. We has a young girl as a “guide” and it is worth it as as well as telling you the names of the various formations they tell you when to be careful where you put your feet and when to duck your head. But don’t let them hurry you through. There are two main caves divided by an arena with high grassy cliffs, but there are lots of secret side caves with alters and Buddhas. Out the other side you have the choice of going back the same way, walking round the rock formation to even taking a pony and trap. In the car park there are steps leading up the rock face to view a lake and the rice paddies but as it was the dry season and very hot we didn’t bother. iPad our guide $1 and the Tuk-Tuk from Kep 15

ok if you are in kep and dont know what to do (because beach its not exactly a beach you want to spend time there) you can take a tuktuk tour to see this cave, pepper farms and salk lakes.
Its not something more than a cave. road is too bumpy.

For this 'cave' you can simply climb up the marked path and enjoy the view and have a look at the small altar located inside the cave.

We decided to hire a tuk tuk from the Crab Market to explore the Trach Cave. It was quite a long and bumpy ride, but we're glad we did it. The caves were very interesting and cool. Thankfully we paid a young boy to guide us that we met in the car park. If you have the time and want to explore something, I recommend the caves. Bring water and expect to get a little dirty. Wear non-slip shoes.

As far as limestone caves go it's fairly average, the shrines inside the cave system are interesting, during the wet season access would be non-existant by my best guess.

Biggest issue for a place that has such history between the Bodhivistas and the Khmer Rouge is that it is filled with rubbish and human excrement.

Stop if you have time as we did, but do not go out of your way to see this one.
