Virachey National Park Community-Based Ecotourism Initiative

List of CBET sites around Cambodia

Overview
Virachey National Park was established in 2004 by MoE (Ministry of Environment). With its 3.325 square kilometers, Virachey National Park is the largest National Park among seven other National Parks in Cambodia. It offers an incredible insight into the variety of both Cambodia's still existing wilderness and wildlife. Visitors can go on multiday guided trekking trips through the Park including outdoor camping at night.

Location
Virachey National Park is located within Rattanak kiri and Stung Treng provinces. It shares border with Lao and Vietnam. Banlung, the capital of Rattanak kiri province, can be reached by bus from Phnom Penh. This takes about 12 hours. Virachey National Park is 50km away from Banlung. During dry season it takes roughly 1 hour to get there by car or 1 ½ hours to get there by motorbike. During rainy season the drive takes about 4 ½ to 5 hours due to the road conditions.
