Exploring the old ‘Sihanouk Trail’ in Cambodia with Red Bull Media House

Hanuman recently looked after a major overland expedition for Red Bull Media House, the extreme sports specialists. For this trip they were following some competition mountain bikers, including Rebecca Rusch, the “Queen of Pain”, down the Ho Chi Minh Trail through Laos and onwards south down the ‘Sihanouk Trail’ in Cambodia.

Red Bull Crew in Cambodia

Red Bull Crew in Cambodia

2 mountain bikes, 5 dirt bikes, 8 4WDs, this was an expedition through some of the most remote parts of Cambodia. Crossing into Cambodia at Trapeang Kriel, the crew headed northwest to Siem Pang before crossing the Sekong River and surfing through the sand to Veun Sai. After a comfortable overnight in Ban Lung, they continued south to Koh Nhek, using the old ‘Death Highway’ from Lumphat. From there, they blasted through Sen Monorom on the new road before veering off to follow the old King’s Highway through the jungles of Kaoh Seima Protected Forest, one of the most beautiful roads in Cambodia.

All of this was captured on state-of-the-art Red Epic Dragon 6K cameras, that means 9X the pixels of an HD camera or one hell of a lot of memory. It should make for an epic endurance film through some of the most remote and beautiful parts of Indochina.

Join Hanuman Films on a Virtual Location Scout in Battambang

Watch this location video of Cambodia’s charming second city, including impressive colonial-era buildings, a striking riverside location and some out-of-town attractions set in an idyllic rural setting.

Battambang is a great place to create the old atmosphere of French Indochine or the parts of Indochina back in the days of the Vietnam War, before cities like Hanoi and Phnom Penh developed a modern face. All The Last Reel cinema locations were shot in Battambang as was much of The Gate, based on Francois Bizot’s book, currently in post-production. Add to the architecture the infamous bamboo ‘norry’ train or one of the famed hilltop ancient temples like Phnom Banan and you have one of Cambodia’s most diverse locations for a film crew wanting to stay away from the public eye and concentrate on getting the job done.

On Location with Hanuman Films at the Great Preah Khan Temple

Join a virtual location scout to the Great Preah Khan Temple of Kompong Svay, not to be confused with the other Preah Khan in Siem Reap which is part of the Grand Circuit at Angkor.

Also know as Bakan, this temple was considered one of the largest built during that time. It has been quite badly damaged by looting over the years, but retains a well-preserved 4-face temple called Prasat Preah Stung.

It used to be the Mother of all Temples to reach, located in splendid isolation at the end of decaying Angkorian roads and snaking sandy tracks. However, today there is a good road right up to the temple passing through Sangkum Thmei District in Preah Vihear Province. Journey times from Preah Vihear City (2hrs) and Kompong Thom (3hrs) have been reduced dramatically.

On Location at the King of the Mountain Temples, Preah Vihear

Location, location, location, join Hanuman Films on a scout at Preah Vihear, a dramatic mountain-top temple perched on the cliffs of the Dangrek Mountains.

 

This imposing temple marks the border between Cambodia and Thailand. It sits 600m, above the Cambodian plains below, and many consider its location the most dramatic of all the Angkorian temples. The final level of the temple clings to a cliff face in the Dangrek Mountains, towering hundreds of metres above lowland Cambodia below. The views from this most mountainous of temple mountains are breathtaking, the foundation stones of the temple stretching to the edge of the cliff as it plunges precipitously away to the plains below.

On Location with Hanuman Films in Phnom Penh

Head out on location with the Hanuman Films team around Phnom Penh to explore some top spots around the capital.

Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s resurgent and vibrant capital. Once dubbed the ‘Pearl of Asia’, Phnom Penh is fast regaining its sheen, boasting the glimmering spires of the Royal Palace, the fluttering saffron of monks’ robes and a luscious location on the banks of the mighty Mekong River. The city streets and markets are a continuous hive of activity, the capital’s landmarks are an eclectic mix of old and new and Phnom Penh is now among the hip cities of the region, with an alluring café culture, bustling bars and a world-class food scene.

Expedition Unknown in Cambodia for the pilot episode on Travel Channel

Josh Gates and the Expedition Unknown were recently in Cambodia to film the first episode in a new series for Travel Channel.

Expedition Unknown chronicles the adventures of Josh Gates as he investigates iconic mysteries across the globe. Gates begins by interviewing key eyewitnesses and uncovering recent developments in the story, then springboards into a fully immersive exploration. This authentic, roughshod adventure leads Gates closer to the truth behind these unanswered global enigmas, such as the disappearance of Amelia Earhart’s plane.

 

Josh Gates is an adventurer and avid explorer with a unique brand of humor and passion for off-the-map excursions. Former Destination Truth presenter Josh Gates has already been to Cambodia several times, including shoots on the ‘jungle girl’ of Ratanakiri in 2007 and the ghosts of Angkor in 2010. Following a brief private trip last year, the Hanuman Films team was really happy to welcome him and the crew back to Cambodia.

 

In this episode, Josh Gates investigates the mystery of the ‘lost city’ of Mahendraparvata on the holy mountain of Phnom Kulen, about 50km from the temples of Angkor. We won’t give away any more details, but the show promises to be a cracker as Josh explores the backwaters of Cambodia.

 

Nick Ray worked with the Expedition Unknown team on scouting locations for the story and caught up on camera with Josh in Phnom Penh. Kulikar Sotho worked on the shoot, directing some of the ambitious recreation scenes around the temples of Angkor and also appeared in an on-camera interview with Josh.

 

Watch out for Expedition Unknown, coming soon to Travel Channel.

Indus Films of the UK was commissioned by the BBC to produce a landmark series on the Mekong River and Hanuman Films was contacted as the line production company to assist with the four-part series featuring Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and China. Hanuman Films line produced the first two episodes in the series covering Vietnam and Laos and provided advice and recommendations for the third episode in Laos. Popular television presenter Sue Perkins fronted the show and for episode 1 she journeyed from Ho Chi Minh City through the Mekong Delta and into Cambodia. She visited the incredible floating market of Cai Rang and met a survivor of Tuol Sleng Prison before travelling northeast to the majestic temples of Angkor and the Tonle Sap Lake. Sue and the Indus crew spent several days living in the village of Kompong Pluk, learning about fishing techniques and local lifestyles. The great lake is the heartbeat of Cambodia and the incredible rise and fall in its water levels are intimately connected to the rise and fall of the Mekong River. The lake is known to expand to five times its normal area during the wet season, making it a vital source of fish and protein for the Cambodian population.

For episode 2, the focus moved to the wildlife in Cambodia and Sue joined a Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) organised by leading wildlife NGO Wildlife Alliance and the Cambodian government, on a wildlife bust in Koh Kong. She then travelled deep into Mondulkiri Province in the northeast of Cambodia where she visited the Elephant Valley Project (EVP) and learnt about their ecotourism initiatives to protect retired working elephants. In Kratie Province, she encountered rare freshwater dolphins in the Mekong River, as well as the rare Cantor’s Turtle. Finally the team travelled up to Ratanakiri to meet the minority people of this remote province and learn how dams and deforestation might affect their lives as the region develops.

Filming has now wrapped on this new mini-series and it will be screened on the BBC later in 2014.
