Full description
Begin the tour right from your accommodation while you learn about the tour's program. About 48 kilometers away from Siem Reap rests Phnom Koulen National Park. Take a jeep gives straight to the Cambodian countryside and look around at the area's unique lifestyle. Considered a sacred mountain in Cambodia, Phnom Koulen has a religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists who come to the mountain on pilgrimage. Visit the beautiful reclining Buddha, a highlight for even the most experienced travelers. Next, head to the area of Hindu lingas on the riverbed. Look above over the spectacular waterfalls at the temple sites with carved animal figures. Enjoy a refreshing swim in a large pool at the base of the fall. Later in the afternoon, head back by taking the outback dirt paths as you make your way through dense jungles. In the late afternoon or early evening we will reach your accommodation in Siem Reap.

We were picked up from our hotel by jeep and drove out of town. Then we could decide whether we wanted to continue on the road or off-road. We decided to go off-road and rode cool trails! Then in the national park we looked at a mountain village with Buddha, had lunch (delicious) and bathed in front of the waterfall. Som, our guide, was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Man comes back totally dusty, but it was an experience.

Fantastic!!!

Our guide and our driver were perfect on time and very friendly. The Tour was private and we were very satisfied. The driver drove safely and not too fast. Our guide was very friendly and explained everything to us in detail. We saw the Lingas, the largest lying Buddha in the world and were swimming at the waterfalls. The swimming was so great, just a few other people and no other tourists. The sights were not overflowed and the scenery during the trip was beautiful. Our driver and our guide (Chilli and Sokha) were great! Thay did a fantastic job. This was our second tour (the other tour was last year) and we would always book it again!

Chilli was amazing! I had so much fun and learned a lot about the culture. He was patient with me while I was moving slow and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you!
