History buffs visiting Oddar Meanchey, Cambodia should not miss out on a trip to a cliff which was used by a Khmer Rouge leader as an observation post.
The cliff was later named Ta Mok Cliff after a senior commander who was active from 1970 to 1975 during the Khmer Rouge regime, which existed from 1968 to 1979.
The cliff, which previously did not have a name, is off-limits to civilians.
However, one can enter the modern historic site after obtaining permission from the Cambodian military.
The cliff’s scenery and its surrounding are very grim as the entire site was abandoned and uninhabited since the collapse of the genocidal regime.
There are many sites around the cliff and hill which were used by Khmer Rouge forces as command posts.
