Since we will spend our second night at the Base Camp 2, our packing should be lighter and we need to bring with some snack, jacket or raincoat in case of raining and with the cold weather of the top of Mt. Tompor, the jacket is a must bring for this next journey.

Leaving at 1 pm, we will trek through the forest where it is still an unexplored area so it is expected that you will encounter a lot of Teak/ទៀក, what is known to be “land leech”, which we recommend our travelers to apply it on before leaving Base Camp 2. Our whole trekking journey will take around 3 hours, passing through 6 small streams and several small mountains and we will reach the Area 5, upon reaching that open space, it means we are about to reach the top of Mt. Tompor now. Trekking for another uphill slope, we are now on the top of Mt. Tompor with the sign put up by our Der Prey team, supported by the government. One noticeable thing we will experience is the weather differences of the mountain top, the weather can be unbearable cool, yet, refreshing for those who have been in the hot weather all along; we will spend some time taking photos and then leave at 4:30 pm.
