PHNOM BOKOR (BOKOR HILL STATION)
Bokor Hill Station (Khmer: ស្ថានីយភ្នំបូកគោ, Sthani Phnum-bokko, French: Station d’altitude de Bokor) refers to a collection of French colonial buildings constructed as a temperate mountain luxury resort and retreat for colonial residents in the early 1920s atop Bokor Mountain in Preah Monivong National Park, about 37 km (23 mi) west of Kampot in southern Cambodia. Abandoned for long periods of time, modern infrastructure has made the location easily accessible as re-development is taking place. It was used as the location for the final showdown of the movie City of Ghosts (2002) and the 2004 film R-Point. To the north-east are the Povokvil Waterfalls. The Damrei Mountains have long been considered sacred and venerated by the Cambodians. The hill station was built as a resort by colonial French to help the french military who were stationed in that region. They were desperate for some relief from the oppressive heat that is characteristic to this part of the world. So is was, in the early 1920’s, Bokor Hill, a small resort town was built especially for the occupying french soldiers.|-anonymous-|. Nine hundred lives were lost in nine months during the construction of the resort in this remote mountain location.
Popokvil waterfall is situated on Bokor Mountain – a popular destination for tourists in Kampot Province thanks to its pleasant cool weather and beautifully landscaped hill. Just a few kilometers calculated from the hill station, the falls lie right at the edge of the highland march which covers much of the mountain-top. Because of the poor state of these bridges that cross the streams zig-zaggin over the hill, you will have no choice except walking the last kilometer to the waterfalls. It is pretty pleasant to walk, and if you are lucky enough, you may even catch sight of some interesting wild-life, such as giant red squirrels or monkeys. Even when coming to the waterfall might be a little bit challenging, but as soon as you see at firsthand the natural beauty of the falls, then you absolutely know, with no doubt, that it is definitely worth your efforts.
