Trip Info

Discover the treasure of Kulen Mountain on a trekking adventure tour. This is a three-day excursion of hard trekking. You’ll start on the East side of Kulen Mountain in Beng Mealea. During your trek, you’ll camp in tents and have a support team throughout the trip.

Your first day will begin at 7 a.m. with a pick up and transfer from your hotel in Siem Reap. You’ll meet your trekking guide and driver and head to the starting point of the trek. Trek through the versatile terrain from small isolated villages and across rice paddy fields to mountain ranges. Trek uphill through the forest and cook a jungle lunch nearby a small pond where you can enjoy a refreshing swim.

After lunch, visit the remote jungle temple called O Thmor Darb. Continue trekking through the jungle, crossing an organic nut and cashew farm. Depending on the season you may even get to taste some of the farmed nuts! Visit another treasure of the jungle, the former Khmer Pottery Factory during the first period of the capital city. Head on to the hidden temple of Kra Bey Krab and set up camp for the night.

Pack up camp and head out for another adventurous day. Today you’ll discover the secret jungle mountain of Kulen, trekking through tall grass and limestone and crossing farms along the way. See the exceptional six meter high sandstone of the 10th century, depicting elephants and lions lost in the dense jungle. Take a small downhill hike through the forest to visit the bat cave.

Continue trekking through the jungle with some waterfall crossing before relaxing by the cool water for the rest of the day. Swim along the riverbed and take a short trek downhill to where you will camp for the night.

On the third and final day of your trekking adventure, you’ll explore and visit the holy place and water of the god Hindu. Kulen Mountain is considered to be a unique sacred mountain in Cambodia because of the thousands of Lingas carvings under the river, which you can clearly see through the water. Take a short trek to see the Grand Buddha and stop at the natural spring coming from the Buddha’s toes. The Khmer people come here to wash their face and heads because they believe the water brings them happiness, good luck and prosperity. The last leg of your trek is down the rocky jungle stairs.

Enjoy your last trekking meal before meeting up with the minivan that will take you back to Siem Reap. If you wish to extend your trip, at an additional cost, there is the option to take another three-day tour through the world famous Heritage Site of UNESCO, Angkor Complex.
