Kampong Speu (also spelt Kampong Spoe) is the main town of Kampong Speu province in the Cardamom and Elephant Mountains region of Cambodia.


Kampong Speu town is just about 40 km from the outskirts from Phnom Penh.

Kampong Speu province is situated in western Cambodia between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville. It's flatter regions are quite nondescript but, the area towards the Cardamom Mountains is well worth a visit.

Get in

Get around


  • Chambok waterfall (Chambok), (roughly 20 km from the main Sihanoukville - Phnom Penh highway), [1]. A community run eco-tourism site. The protected forest contains a 20m high waterfall which can be reached by a 3km walk. An entrance fee is required.







Get out

  • 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.
