Secret Temples of Cambodia

This 7 day tour is a fantastic way to see the best of the Cambodian temples, taking you to all of the

main sites as well as some hidden gems that most people miss. Highlights include: Kulen Mountain, Bantey Srei, Beng Mealea, Koh Ker, Preah Vihear, Preah Khan, Banteay Chmar, Sambor Prei Kuk as well as the big three of Ta Phrom, Bayon and the mother of all temples Angkor Wat.

We start the tour with Kulen Mountain which boasts stunning views of the surrounding area as well as a nearby waterfall and the underwater carvings of 1000 lingas. Moving on Banteay Srei offers some of the most magnificent carving to be seen in the Archaeological Park. The next temple that we will visit is the incredible jungle temple of Banteay Chhmar where we stay overnight in a welcoming traditional home stay.

Our exploration continues with Beng Mealea & Koh Ker with both temples offering a stark reminder of the power of nature and how ultimately it is able to retake even the grandest of buildings. Our final journey north and around to Kampong Thom rewards you with the stunning views from the top of Preah Vihear, sitting at the top of a 700m high cliff.

Day 1

Before finishing where it began at the sandstone temple complex of Sambor Prei Kuk which is an exciting way to finish and put all the pieces into place due to it being built before the temples in the Archaeological Park. On our last day we spend a whole day at the Angkor Temples which it goes without saying are a must for any trip to Cambodia.
