Itinerary

MEALS [ L ]

Beng Mealea & Phnom Kulen
- Full Day
Depart from Siem Reap for an adventure like no other. Travel through the rice paddies and past villages to Phnom Kulen, an impressive sandstone plateau in this otherwise flat area.

The mountain is considered the birthplace of the Khmer empire and is thus a popular pilgrimage site for locals. Travel to the top and learn about the origins of the empire while venturing from temple to temple, many of which are hidden by nature. Continue to the unusual River of 1000 Lingas, a riverbed carved with Hindu gods and other religious symbols. Be amazed at this set of underwater carvings which are around 1000 years old.

Return to the base of the mountain and head deeper into the countryside to Beng Mealea. This pagoda laid abandoned for centuries and was largely swallowed by tree roots and other foliage. Trek through the jungle and discover this harmonious blend of nature and architecture. Climb over massive vines and through moss-covered arches to explore the temple’s carvings and inner chambers.

After concluding the Beng Mealea tour, head back towards Siem Reap. (L)
