The Itinerary

6-8 Hours

This morning we just take an easy going after breakfast to Phnom Kulen, considered the most sacred mountain in Cambodia. It was here that Jayavarman II declared himself a ‘god-king’ and gave birth to the Khmer Empire in AD 802. Declaring a unified Khmer Empire under a single ruler, it began what later would be known as the Angkor period, although the capital city would not be moved for another century. We will travel through a lush landscape of paddy fields and remote villages to the National Park. Take you to the major sights and explain the history of the Khmer Empire, revealing some unique places. You will explore several ruins, including the carvings of Yoni and Linga etched into the sandstone riverbed and the stone representation of the Hindu god Vishnu lying on his serpent Ananta, with his wife Lakshmi at his feet. Wat Pre Ang Thom-is a focus of pilgrimage for Khmer during religious festivals and the large reclining Buddha carved into a huge sandstone boulder here offers spectacular views across the lush jungle. Nearby are impressive riverbed rock carvings, and a classic waterfall further downstream which is the perfect place to cool off after exploring. Nearby is a small, jungle-clad temple called Prasat Krau Romeas. We enjoy a picnic lunch and visit Kulen Waterfall where you can take a refreshing bath. It is then time to leave behind the plateau and drive back to Siem Reap and to your hotel. The distance between Siem Reap to Kulen Waterfall is 60 km, which it takes 1 hour and half.
