200 baht to enter Cambodia? Is this some new scam? I didn't pay a single riel in 2004... (WT-en) Jpatokal 13:15, 11 Dec 2005 (EST)

Helicopter wreck[edit]

When I was there in 1999 there was a crashed Russian helicopter (I think a Mi-8) near the top, perhaps from the fighting between the Khmer Rouge and the Cambodian government. It'd have some scrap value though so its probably gone by now.

I read somewhere recently that it's now in one of the museums at Siem Reap.
Here's the story (March/April 1998)[1] and a pic (December 2000)[2]
