What To Expect
Phnom Kulen Waterfall
Kulen Mountain (its name means "Lychee Mountain") is around 60km north of Angkor Wat and one of the holiest places in Cambodia. The waters of the Siem Reap river, so important for the Angkor Empire, Flowed from this mountain, and visitors can still see the fertility symbols carved into the riverbed centuries ago to ensure continued prosperity. Holy men study here and ascetic hermits live in ancient pagodas. It was at Kulen that the Devaraja cult was born, turning the human rulers of the Khmer into gods. Pilgrimages are still made to the mountain, And visitors can swim in the clean, cool water and examine the carvings, waves of butterflies swooping past and off into the lush jungle around. Kulen Mountain is also the sight of the Reclining Buddha monument, a massive statue carved whole out of the mountain top in the 16th Century. During the Indochina War, bombs were dropped all around the Buddha, but none destroyed that statue. It is now a popular place for Khmer to make picnics.
We will break to have the lunch and swim here till 2.30 pm to return to Siem Reap.

Great tour to Kulen mountain
Really enjoyed our tour to Kulen mountain. The highlights of the tour was the river with a thousand lingas, the huge reclining Buddha and the waterfall in the jungle. On the way there we also stopped at the quarry where they cut the stone for Ankor Wat (and other temples) for a great panoramic view. Our guide Thy spoke great English and gave us a lot of info not just about the sights, but life and history of Cambodia. On the way back we stopped at a nice restaurant for lunch. There was always cold water available throughout the tour and we got Cambodian scarves as gifts from our guide.
Great tour with a great guide.
My wife and I took the Kulen mountain tour in March. It was a nice break from the heat in Siem Reap, especially with the swim at the waterfall. The river with the 1000 lingas and the reclining Buddha on top of the hill were pretty interesting. Our guide Thy was very friendly and knowledgeable about history of the area. We each received free traditional Cambodian scarf as a gift.
