The Best unique temples to the north-east
This tour is designed to guide you to the north-east of Cambodia, 120km from Siem Reap, one of the great ancient civilization. The Capital City of Koh Ker has been moved from Angkor in 921-948 by King Jayavarman IV. He has built 138 temples around Koh Ker Group, and now it becomes National Park surrounding by thick jungles. On the way you are dropped to see the most beautiful hidden-covered jungle Beng Mealea rather amazing than Tomb Raider Temple. The temple used to be a citadel of Khmer Rouge surrounded by thosands landmines until 2003 then German-CMAX-Cooperation started to demind landmines from 2003-2011 opening this temple public to the whole world. Then drives an hour seeing country with different sightseeing of the local farms to Koh Ker.
