Sambor Prei Kuk Boj

Sambor Prei Kuk by Boj Capati

From Phnom Penh, it is possible to do a day trip to Sambor Prei Kuk, a beautiful pre-Angkorian temple complex in the middle of the forest. The Kampong Thom local tourism office actively encourages tourists to arrange visits with local communities - from tuk-tuk rides, tour guide service and site interpretation.

According to my guide, Sambor (many) Prei (forest) Kuk (temples), means, many temples inside the forest. Indeed, SPK is situated in a distinct landscape, different from the vast plain of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, or the sacred cliff of Prasat Preah Vihear. The forest appears to be an integral element of the temple complex, no wonder the site is nominated as a cultural landscape

Mt. Pulag National Park (T) Boj

Mt. Pulag National Park (T) by Boj

Mt. Pulag is the highest peak in Luzon island (the third highest in the Philippines), and is arguably the most effectively managed National Park in the country. It is being nominated under (ix) and (x) biodiversity - and rightly so, as this site best represents a unique array of endemic flora and fauna of the Cordillera Biogeographic Zone.

Despite its mighty height, Pulag is one of the country's easiest hikes. The grassland peak can be reached within 5-6 hours of gentle trek.

Northern Sierra Madre Natural Park (T) Boj

Northern Sierra Madre Natural Park (T) by Boj

Several protected areas are found within the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, the longest in the Philippines, at 680km-420mi from Cagayan province in the north to Quezon province in the south. One of the protected areas found in the mountain range is the Northern Sierra Madre Natural Park, also the country's largest protected area.

It is a biodiverse site, a home to a number of PH "flagship" species like the Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) and the Philippine freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis). The enclosed photo is one of the many crocodile lakes found along the western side of the park, close to the buffer zone. The crocodiles are currently under the care of the PH environment, the local communities and the Mabuwaya Foundation, a conservation NGO.

Mt. Malindang Range Natural Park (T) Boj

Mt. Malindang Range Natural Park (T) by Boj

Mt. Malindang is found in Mindanao island, in southern Philippines. The Malindang mountain range is not only a biodiverse site (home to a number of endemics), it is also blessed with crazy beautiful natural scenery, such as volcanic calderas which are now crater lakes, waterfalls, canyons and hot springs.

It is home to the Subanon indigenous people, the caretakers and residents of the mountain.

Butuan Archeological Sites (T) Boj

Butuan Archeological Sites (T) by Boj

Butuan in nothern Mindanao is synonymous to the balangays, or the archaeological remains of large open-air wooden boats. The balangay is a testimony to the rich maritime history of the Philippines. These boats are declared National Cultural Treasures, and are considered prehistoric link of the Philippines with the rest of insular Southeast Asia (and beyond).

The excavation sites in Butuan are now under the management of the National Museum, and as mentioned by the museum caretaker, have more artifacts to reveal. In fact, there is more to discover in the city of Butuan, not just in the areas along the river delta (where the balangays were excavated), but also in its nearby hills/mountains.
