Sampeou Mountain : Battambang, Cambodia

Located about 12km from Battambang city, Sampeou Mountain has a dark history. Whilst the Khmer Rouge held power of Cambodia from 1975 – 1979, they used Sampeou Mountain as ‘killing caves’. The soldiers would beat their victims to death and throw their bodies into the caves. Nowadays, there is a memorial with the victims bones, just as you will find in many other parts of Cambodia.
