Angkor Wat is on most traveller’s bucket-list, but only the intrepid ones venture into the beautiful surrounding countryside. Experience what few others get to: see stunning jungle-covered temples, trek through a pristine stretch of forest and travel by zip line for a bird’s-eye view of the jungle canopy.

the reservoir and walk through the forest to a tropical nursery while learning about how local flora are utilised by the Khmer people.
Next, explore Preah Khan Temple. Preah Khan, originally known as ‘the city of victorious royal fortune,’ and now named after The
Sacred Sword that some believe may have once been housed here. Less frequently visited than its counterpart Ta Prohm, Preah Khan is similar in design but is larger and more complex, and features numerous unique structures and carvings. Enter from the east with the early morning light and enjoy the sounds of exotic wildlife that now make the forested compound their home.
Say goodbye to the community guide and head deeper into the jungle for the next adventure: an Angkor zipline course. Enjoy lunch first, before continuing the day in the canopy zipping from tree to tree. A detailed safety briefing will be given before climbing into the trees. Under the watchful eye of a local instructor, zip from one platform to another high above the forest. Enjoy breathtaking views of the trees and be on the lookout for monkeys and birds that live high in the treetops. There are 10 zip lines in total, with the longest being 350 metres. There are also suspended sky bridges and even a chance to abseil from a tree. Trained, experienced staff will be stationed at each platform to ensure a safe trip for every participant. Having sailed above the jungle, return to ground level for a short forest trek to return to the starting point. (Note – max 9 people in a single group, latest start time is 12pm, excursion lasts 3-4 hrs, maximum weight 125kg, not suitable for children under 5 yrs old or 1m height, no sandals permitted). Following this fabulous adventure, it is time to return to Siem Reap. (L)
