About
Located 48kms out of Siem Reap through the stunning Cambodian countryside is Phnom Kulen, considered a holy mountain in Cambodia and of special religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists who come in pilgrimage, Phnom Kulen is also the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire. You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced local guide who will give you an insight into the history, lifestyle and culture of rural Cambodia throughout the day.  Highlights of the trip include some truly stunning natural scenery, a huge reclining Buddha, riverbed carvings, early Khmer temples and a beautiful waterfall.  The open-sided vintage Jeeps are a fantastic way to take in the scenery along the way. As a private tour, you will receive personal attention from your guide and the itinerary is flexible based on your interests.

What to expect
  • At 8 am your guide and driver will collect you by vintage Jeep, then you will depart from Siem Reap for the Cambodian countryside.  We will be out amongst the rice fields and rural villages with traditional Cambodian stilted houses. After 90 minutes or so we will arrive at the ticket office at the mountain (entrance included). Then we will make the steep climb up the mountain for a further 30 minutes. We will visit the huge reclining Buddha, an impressive site and a highlight of the day. Another highlight is Kabal Spean a spectacularly carved riverbed known in English as the River of a Thousand Lingas’.  We will stop for tasty local lunch and then check out 2 of the most impressive waterfalls in Cambodia.  At the base of the falls is a large pool where we can go for a refreshing swim. There are a number of interesting Khmer temple sites to check out during the day.   Later in the afternoon, we will head back by taking the outback dirt paths and might even witness dense jungles and more of the stunning rural countryside. We will arrive back at your hotel between 4.30 and 5 pm that afternoon.

A Beautiful way to see Siem Reap!
Feb 2019 • Couples
Pasil was an amazing tour guide throughout our trip up Phnom Kulen! He is very knowledgeable and amenable to what you want to see and experience throughout the day. He helped my husband and I find many vegetarian cultural snacks throughout the day and taught us much about the Khmer's rich history and culture.

Jan 2019 • Couples
I booked this tour for 2nd Jan 2019 via tripadvisor on 31st Dec 2018. I have received the email confirmation and e-ticket by tripadvisor, no further confirmation from this company Cambodia Jeep.

They are supposed to pick us up from the hotel at 8am. I sent an email to them at 8:30am to ask if the tour is confirmed as no one came, and our hotel staff started to call them since then, for several time, they said the driver and tour guide are coming, however, after 2 hours of waiting, no one showed up, Cambodia Jeep and I agreed to cancel the tour over the phone, they promised they will do a full refund (about US$260 for two people) plus 10% of the fee as compensation, but so far they have not answered any of my emails. I am not sure if they will keep their promise for the refund.

As tourists, we have very limited time in Siem Reap, Cambodia Jeep could have told us earlier if they couldn't make it, but we wasted two hours of waiting, and had to switch plan at the last minute. Until now, more than a week passed since the cancellation of tour, Cambodia Jeep never answered any emails, very unprofessional.

Great trip
Did everything on the list, plus rented life jackets and climbed behind the waterfall. Everything’s beautiful. Chili was our tour guide. Fun, friendly, and informative.

Excellent tour
Phnom Kulen is a must when in Siem reap and traveling there through tiny villages and beautiful countryside in an authentic Jeep made it a different experience again. The tour was a welcome relief from the crowds at the larger temples and when visiting the place considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Cambodia the small and personalized tour gave a wonderful insight into this beautiful country’s history. Chilli our guide is a legend with excellent knowledge of his country’s history and a true love of his home and people.

A Great Tour That Gets You Outside of Siem Reap
We had a wonderful time taking the Cambodia Jeep Tour to Phnom Kulen National Park. This tour takes you through the back country roads, where you are able to see Cambodian life outside of Siem Reap on your way up to Phnom Kulen. Chili, our guide and driver was very knowledgeable, spoke English fluently, drove safely and tailored the tour to meet our needs. You can’t ask for anything more!
