The limestone caves between Kampot city and Kampong Trach town are famous for exotic rock formations and Buddhist shrines hidden deep into the caverns. There is a variety of stalagmites and stalactites dating back to the 5th century AD and limestone formations in the shapes of elephants, which attract climbers from all over the world. Make sure you wear appropriate trekking shoes to explore one of the most fascinating natural wonders of Cambodia that is available in all seasons. However if you want to experience something special, try swimming in some of the water pools located inside the caves. They fill up with water in the middle of the wet season.​ Keep in mind that the name 'Moon cave' is not official, so some people might not know what exactly you are talking about.
