About this book

Language: English with trilingual abstract in English, German, and French

During the 2008 joint Cambodian–German–British fieldwork to the Battambang area (northwest Cambodia) 65 caves were registered, 55 of which were visited and 42 were mapped according to international standards (see Annex). A total of 4239 metres of cave passages were surveyed, including the 116 m long La Ang Spean, which has been subject of archaeological investigations, in the late 1960s (Mourer & Mourer 1970). The longest caves found were Roung Chak Treang 2 (551 m long), Roung Reigohom 2 (396 m) and La Ang Miadah Bai Dah (354 m). This represents the most comprehensive study of the karst and the caves of the Battambang area so far.
