Cardamom Mountains rain forests

WWF Abstract

Sitting astride the Cardamom Mountains and the Elephant Range in southwestern Cambodia and southeastern Thailand, and separated from other rain forests by the vast, dry Khorat Plateau, this ecoregion is relatively isolated and largely unexplored. This isolation, along with the region's moist and stable climatic conditions, undisturbed habitat, and rugged terrain, create conditions that led to the evolution of high biodiversity.
