Kulen Mountain - Waterfalls, Swimming holes and the reclining Buddha

Quickly leave Siem Reap behind and journey out through the countryside to the Kulen Mountain national park.  The mountain was the first capital city and gave birth to the great Angkor civilization it remains one of the holiest sites in the country.

 

Our adventures begin with a short walk to the River of 1000 Lingas, incredible carvings set directly in the river bed.  Beautiful carvings of gods and goddesses can also be found at this beautiful site.   We visit the reclining Buddha, the largest in Cambodia.  Your guide will take you through a traditional offering, a ritual undertaken by locals on a daily basis.

 

From here we wander through the beautiful jungle full of wildlife and butterflies heading to the bat caves.  Along the way we may pass small traditional farming plots, with the techniques used today barely changed from their origins.

 

Our final destination are the waterfalls and swimming holes at Kulen where we will have time to explore, enjoy a picnic lunch and take advantage of the cool waters of Kulen Mountain.

What to Wear

The sandy soil on the steps of the temples can create quite a slip hazard.  We strongly suggest you wear sturdy footwear.  Many parts of the temple areas are exposed, please wear protective clothing, hat and sunscreen.

  • Strict Dress Codes are applied when visiting Angkor Wat - access to upper levels will not be granted if shoulders or knees are exposed.  You must cover up with clothing items - a scarf or sarong will not be accepted.

  • Cambodian culture is conservative and revealing clothing is not appropriate for the temples.  Please be respectful of Cambodia's culture and avoid wearing anything too revealing.

  • Swimwear in Cambodia is very conservative - we recommend wearing a T shirt and shorts over your swimsuit.
