Add a Point to the Map

Anlong Veng is a small town in the Oddar Meanchey province in the North-Western Region of Cambodia. Its sole claim to notability is its connection to the later days of the Khmer Rouge.

Pol Pot, Ta Mok, Son Sen and Khiev Samphan, the leaders of the organization, all had homes here. The district also holds the graves of Pol Pot and Ta Mok, as well as the remnants of the structure where Pol Pot was convicted of 'crimes against the Cambodian people.'

What might otherwise be an overly morbid itinerary is redeemed by the stunning mountain scenery. There is a border crossing with Thailand's Si Saket Province 13 km north of Anlong Veng town.
