This Buddhist temple sits at the foot of Phnom Kompong Trach, a dramatic karst formation riddled with more than 100 caverns and passageways. From the wat, an underground passage leads to a fishbowl-like formation, surrounded by vine-draped cliffs and open to the sky. Various stalactite-laden caves shelter reclining Buddhas and miniature Buddhist shrines. The closest town is Kompong Trach. From here, take the dirt road opposite the old Acleda Bank, on NH33 in the town centre, for 2km.
Kompong Trach is 28km northeast of Kep on NH33, making it an easy day trip from both Kep and Kampot. At the wat, note that friendly local kids with torches (flashlights) are keen to put their evening-school English to use by serving as guides. Tip them if you use them.
