A Private One Day Tour

The cradle of Khmer civilisation is located 40 km northeast from Siem Reap and is an important pilgrimage site for Cambodian people. Phnom Kulen often lies shrouded in mist but on a clear day one can see the loaf like shape on the horizon across the flat plains of Siem Reap province. The sites atop Phnom Kulen include a Buddhist Pagoda with giant Reclining Buddha, Hindu carvings in the stone river bed and an impressive waterfall under which swimming is possible.
On your way back you will visit a small temple of Banteay Srei well known for its beautiful delicate carvings in warm pink sandstone. This late 10th Century temple is fairly compact and very different from other Angkorian temples. To round off your day you may also visit Banteay Samre - a larger temple which is often overlooked by tourists and looks gorgeous in late afternoon light.
