- Kirirom National Park, (It is accessed from a road (highway 46) from Traeng Trayung on highway no. 4 (Phnom Penh - Sihanoukville)). This national park set up in the mountains (elevation 600-700m)and is easily accessible. On the top of the mountain some hikes can be undertaken, some views to be had and there are some waterfalls to be seen. This is a very popular day trip for Cambodians, and can get very busy at weekends. This popularity also means the areas surrounding the waterfalls have a litter problem. edit
