Bokor National Park

As you climb up through the evergreen forest to Bokor, in the southern coastal region of Cambodia, you will start to notice a change in the ecosystem and by the time you reach the top of the escarpment you are in refreshingly cool, stunted mountain forest, a welcome relief from the steamy- hot lowlands.
The key bird targets at Bokor are the near-endemic Chestnut-headed Partridge and Silver Broadbill, Long-tailed Broadbill, Indochinese Green Magpie, Great Hornbill, Wreathed Hornbill, Wedge-tailed Green Pigeon.
