Watch Your Step

My usual trekking, exploring and camping routine had to be slightly altered in Cambodia. Three decades of war and civil conflict have left Cambodia one of the most heavily mined areas in the world. Estimates range from 4 to 6 million, with the location of the majority completely unknown.

Two days of carefully camping around and independently exploring some of the pre-Angkorian temples in central Cambodia is as far as I pushed my luck, and I am now strictly back on the tourist circuit, going on guided tours and staying in guesthouses.
