What To Expect

Preah Vihear Temple
We will leave Siem Reap early in the morning (around 7 am) and depart northbound for around 250 kilometres (3 hours and 30 minutes) to the Cambodian – Thai border where can see the sacred mountain range of Dong Rek appear in the distance. Averaging in height of about 500 metres with the peaks reaching up to 700 metres, this mountain range is home to the ancient relic of Preah Vihear and affords spectacular views of the Cambodian plains beneath that stretch as far as Phnom Kulen - a national park just north of Siem Reap. Its vast size and easy access to Thailand meant that this is where Pol Pot hid in his later years taking advantage of an easy route to flee.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Via Anlong Veng, a bustling local market, we drive up the hill to our destination of the day. The mountain ranges here extend for over 700 meters on the top of the Dong Rek Mountains. Lunch at a local restaurant is included.

The Hindu temple of Preah Vihear was constructed to worship the god Shiva, dating back to the first half of the 11th century. Its complex history refers already to scriptures that date back to the 9th century. The temple is composed of a series of sanctuaries linked by a system of pavements and staircases over an 800-metre long axis. Customers looking for a well-preserved temple complex - look no further; part of this has been due to its remote location and the exceptional quality of the architecture. Aside from its historical and cultural attractiveness, as brought forward by an English-speaking guide, the panoramic views from the top are seen as some of the most memorable ones in the country.
