Bokor (the mountain) is far too large to climb at night time, and the road is closed at the base of the entry to the area, with armed guards present. The road on the way up is still being rebuilt and is often just dirt or gravel. Might look sleepy outside but theres a LOT of activity inside. By the way, it's actually quite far to the top by road.
The only way by yourself in is if you know someone on the inside.
I managed to get a place on a tour of Bokor including a hike with a ranger and a visit to the hill station. I stayed in Kep and managed to book it through a guy I met at a bar (can't remember the name, but kep is pretty small). Atmospheric at the hill station, mists come and go every few minutes.
You can hire motorcycles at a couple of places in kep.
