kampong cham - mountain bike xc tour

back in 2014 a small group of us did a short tour along the west banks of the mighty mekong river.

the route was basically base on google map with lots of references made from commercial tour operators.

we rode through ethnic cham's villages and and were in close contact with their way of life.

we meet some great people who were very accommodating

and are grateful to have known mariya and zul, a couple who opens the door to their life as founder and CEO of Cambodian  Muslim Foundation an NGO that runs an orphanage in the kampong cham province.

spent an afternoon with these kids and knew that we need a way  to help sustain their needs.

hence these tours aim to share that special afternoon ...

a big thank you to our friends who rode that first tour 

this is the outcome from that 600++km
