From Siem Reap: Phnom Bok Mountain Temple Tour

3. From Siem Reap: Phnom Bok Mountain Temple Tour

This full-day tour takes you to Banteay Samre to visit one of the superb Hindu temples of the Khmer rulers, Suryavarman II and Yasovarman II. Constructed in the mid 9th-Century, very few tours visit the temple as it involves climbing up 640 steps of a steep mountain. But the view from the top is magical and offers 360-degree views of Angkor Wat and the Kulen Mountains. Ideal for adventure travelers with a moderate level of fitness, the tour takes you to Phnom Bok Mountain, approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) from Siem Reap. On the way, you will make a detour to Banteay Samre. The style of the towers and balustrades of the Hindu temple bear strong resemblance to those at Angkor Wat, and even more so to the temples of Phimai in Thailand. Many of its carvings are in excellent condition. Proceed to the base of Phnom Bok and climb to the top of the hill to a very flat summit. Here you can enjoy views of the ivy clad sandstone temples that date back to the 9th-Century. The area was once occupied by the Khmer Rouge and old artillery guns and machine guns still in place serve as a reminder. The tour departs Siem Reap daily at 08:00, and includes a free lunch before you return to Siem Reap in the afternoon.

With these tour it's not just the guide that makes or breaks a good time, it's the group he is leading. He was great Group was not, complained all day, too hot, too many insects, too many people (at waterfall) too expensive (food) but he persevered, so did my wife and I..... If you have the money book a private tour with Mr Cherry.. A quick mention of our driver, he was safe and calm on very bumpy road s, transport was a new Ford transit mini bus... Enjoyable.

Our tour guide Chenda was really good and we enjoyed the whole trip. He gave us a lot of information and also made pictures of us with our cameras. Really helpful. I can absolutely recommend this trip.

This was a great tour and discovery of the nature and countryside in the vicinity of Siem Reap, a perfect introduction to Cambodia!

Enjoyed the add on motorcycle trip to see bat cave and elephants - otherwise it was a bit tame

Everything went smoothly and wonderfully, Bunny took good care of us!
