Overview
Join a group tour to uncover the special religious significance and the natural beauty of Phnom Kulen Mountain, Cambodia’s most sacred mountain, located 50 km north of Siem Reap city.  Learn why the site serves as a place of pilgrimage to both Hindus and Buddhists by visiting the temple of the Reclining Buddha on top of the big rock, the River of 1000 Lingas and the fabulous Phnom Kulen Waterfalls. 
Highlights
  • Discover Khmer sites far from Angkor Wat
  • Visit a pilgrimage place for Khmer Hindus and Buddhists
  • Learn the cultural and historic significance of ancient, sacred sites
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at accommodations in Siem Reap
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Siem Reap for the scenic, 2-hour trip to Phnom Kulen Mountain, passing a landscape of tropical forest and rural communities in your air-conditioned vehicle.

The first stop of the day is a hilltop temple, where you’ll find a massive reclining Buddha carved directly into a sandstone boulder. Next, head to the River of a Thousand Lingas, exploring a riverbank adorned with ancient carvings of phalluses and Hindu gods.

Cool off at another sacred site, Phnom Kulen Waterfalls, which tumble into a wide basin that’s ideal for a midday swim or wade. Throughout the day, the guide will help bring the ancient sites to life by explaining their significance and symbolism, and you’ll have time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant before the return trip to Siem Reap.
