Following The Mekong Discovery Trail – Video Post

While following the Mekong river in Cambodia I was lucky enough to stumble onto the Mekong Discovery Trail. After 30 years of war and civil unrest and the resulting poverty one of the priorities of the Cambodian Government is to improve the living standards of people in rural areas, who are some of the poorest people in the world and sustainable tourism provides a great oppertunity for the people of Cambodia and her wildlife.

The Mekong Discovery Trail provides a development opportunity through sustainable community-based ecotourism. Following the Mekong from the town of Kratie to Cambodia’s border with Laos, the Mekong Discovery Trail takes you off the beaten track providing a perfect insight into Mekong river life and some pretty hairy cycling too! This short video will give you an idea of what some of the trails more wild sections can be cycled.
