Details

After a scenic morning drive, arrive at Oudong, Cambodia’s former capital city for over two centuries. A 509-stair trek brings you to the newest temple built atop the three historic hills. As elegant as it is ornate, this richly-carved, single-spire temple was built to provide a new home for holy relics from Buddha. Untouched by age or fallout from war, this temple stands unblemished amongst its neighbors, a symbol of Cambodia’s powerful heyday and slow but steady recovery.

Wander along hilltops where temples and stupas peek through hillside vegetation, and sweeping panoramas of verdant floodplains, rice-paddies, and Cambodian countryside stretch before you. Stop to explore the remains of centuries’-old structures located here. Be sure to see Arthaross, a massive temple enclosure—and perhaps one of the most haunting ruin at Oudong. Overlooking the serene landscape, and badly damaged during the war-ridden 1970s, all that remains here are two rows of pillars that once supported an airy ceiling and the battle-marred lap and right torso of a sitting Buddha statue.
