Phnom means hill, so Phnom Slap Ta'aun is the name of the hill. Like all limestone towers this one is riddled with caves. The caves are accessible from a small quarry which was created by the locals to mine the limestone they need. The caves form a maze of passages and chambers, which may be visited freely. Probably there are some locals willing to act as a guide.
