THE TOP TREE ADVENTURE IS SELF-SUPERVISED
La-oh Park’s guides will accompany you during the Initiation Sessions in two steps (Briefing + Training). Once you have completed the Training session successfully, you will be responsible for your own safety during the circuit.
A continuous belay system assures the safety of the visitors and eliminate the need for any transfer besides the first one to start the course and the second one to exit the course. Once connected, the participant’s lanyard is always securely attached to a specific carabineer riding on an unique cable system.
The continuous nature of these systems prevents the possibility that the participant will become disconnected from the lifeline while on the ropes course. As participants move from element to element, the pulley must move over or though some form of a bracket attached to the support structure (pole, tree or column).
The user must fasten the safety line at the foot of the access stairs when embarking on a course, and may only be disengaged from the lifeline on returning to the ground at the end of the course.
The top tree adventure is totally safe if you follow attentively and constantly our SAFETY RULES AND INTERNAL POLICIES.

Our location, beside the beach is lush with strong and healthy trees, offers unique natural settings for everyone to travel from one platform to another, from tree to tree, and challenge themselves through different games such as rope bridges, Tarzan swing, wood walkway, flying board and zip lines.
We take special care and concern to customize the park to blend in with its natural setting and minimize environmental impacts to maximize tree health and natures lifecycle. Our main goal is to promote an eco friendly and sustainable kind of tourism.
The team is formed by a group of Khmer and French individuals who love to travel and appreciate the unique landscape that Cambodia offers. Our main wish being to share the fun activities and amazing views that we can experience from the top of the trees.
