Phnom Kulen is the mountain where Jayavarman II declared a unified and independent Khmer Empire in 802AD. The Mountain sits some 50km from Siem Reap and is home to a number of minor ruins, waterfalls and an active Pagoda. This hike explores the foothills of the mountain and journeys up to a monks retreat where hikers are rewarded with a cave carving of a reclining budda and views over the valleys below.
The hike is a steady climb and requires reasonable fitness and agility. You are hiking for approximately1.2 hours up the mountain and returning via the same path. While this is not a difficult hike, especially for those with trekking experience, pathways are narrow with loose gravel and rocks that need negoiating in some places. Your efforts are rewarded with a beautiful and tranquil place.
Following the hike we journey on to the jungle temple of Beng Melea. This temple is one of Angkors most mysterious and affords visitors with the opportunity to truly explore the temple. Climb up, over and through the ruins of this incredible site,
