via Phnom Penh Post, 06 Feb 2019: Kngok Meas in Stung Treng province contains a number of pre-Angkorian archaeological sites.

The Stung Treng provincial government is preparing supporting documents and evidence to have Kngok Meas mountain listed as a national heritage site.

The provincial department of culture and fine arts and the department of tourism are leading the charge to get the mountainous area – located in Thala Barivat district’s Chhvaing village, and containing remains of pre-Angkor era settlements – recognised nationally.

Nhoch Saroeun, the provincial department of culture and fine arts acting director, said Kngok Meas mountain was a national treasure which must be protected and preserved.
