Can you guess how many bats? Bat Cave Battambang


Yvonne and I wanted to see the Bat Caves in
Battambang, Cambodia, so we took at tuk-tuk from the city. The cave is about 12kms from the city and
the tuk-tuk took about 30 minutes to get there. We went in the afternoon in order to climb
the mountain. When we got to the top of the mountain we
saw a lot of monkeys, a pagoda, and a great view of Battambang. After the hike up the mountain, we headed
back down for the main attraction. At around 5:30 pm, the bats start to leave
the cave and it is an amazing sight to see. For about 40 minutes millions of bats exit
the cave and spend the night hunting small bugs like grasshoppers and flies. The local farmers are grateful for the bats
because the consume many of the harmful bugs that destroy local crops. If you want to see this spectacular sight,
it should take an afternoon and evening. We got back into town after 7 pm, but we really
enjoyed this activity. Battambang only has a few things to do, the
bamboo train and the bat caves are probably the best things to see in the area. Watch our other video about our crazy bamboo
train ride here. I hope you enjoyed this video of the Bat Caves
in Battambang, and be sure to give it a like and subscribe for other travel videos! Thanks for watching.
