From: To:

Spend a full-day exploring the birthplace of the Khmer Empire, where an ancient king proclaimed universal rule over the lands. A morning drive brings you through scenic landscape to Phnom Kulen. Upon arrival, ascend the hilltop to see the country’s largest reclining Buddha. At 1,500 feet (487 m), this peak and its sanctuary mark the end of a pilgrimage for many Khmer people, and the tremendous views across the forested plateau help illustrate why.

Cutting through the area is the ‘River of 1,000Lingas,’ where, just under the water’s surface, over 1,000 centuries-old carvings were sculpted into the sandstone riverbed. Downstream, visit the ruins of a 9th century temple and the cascading waterfalls and natural pools that create a lush mountainside oasis. Your private tour includes a refreshing picnic lunch.
