Cambodia tracks / waypoints??

Hi,

Me and a group of friends will soon be riding around Cambodia. Although we will take a local guide / mechanice with us, we'd prefer to lead the ride ourselves from GPS.

If anyone has any saved tracks or waypoints they wouldn't mind sharing with us, or any suggestions of good trails in around Cambodia, these would be very much appreciated.

Also, any other tips for riding in the country would be great!!

Many thanks.

Hi, we just did one month Cambodia, no guide, I was the mechanic for my bike.

There are no such things as "GPS tracks" there. Just one simple reason, they change constantly, for sure after the rain season the routes are all outdated. The guide will know that, thats why it is sometimes good to have them. For the mine fields as well...

There is even not a very good GPS map for Cambodia, the openStreetmap works, the Garmin one doesnt and as well the Rottweiler is not very good. Paper Maps are the best thing to get, and then use the compass. Try to get the German Map "Reise KnowHow Cambodia" thats the best one if have seen till now.

good luck...

We travelled with Dancing Roads in Cambodja and LOVED it! We used a guide (Peang Ton) to explore the jungles. We were glade we had a guide. Every evening we discussed the trip for the next day and all our wishes were met.

This is the map you need! It is really good! I used it for my 5-week motorbike trip through remote Cambodia early this year. I didn't have a guide, just some maps and my gps.
