Northern Temple Trail Of Cambodia: Phnom Penh – Kompong Thom – Angkor Wat – Preah Vihear – Koh Ker – Stung Treng – Laos border.
7 days / 6 nights
From Phnom Penh, we ride to Prasat Kuk Hir temple via the town of Skuon, famous for its deep-fried tarantulas! We then continue through Kompong Thom to Siem Reap, heading to Angkor for sunset.
We spend the day exploring the highlights of the Angkor complex, taking in Angkor Wat itself, Bayon, Mebon, and the overgrown Ta Prohm to name but a few. After a day of exploring, we’ll spend a relaxing evening with a buffet dinner and traditional dance performance in Siem Reap town.
After breakfast, we travel through villages and paddy fields to the exquisite Banteay Srei temple. From there we continue to Kbal Spean where after lunch, we take a short uphill climb to ‘The River of a thousand lingas’. This region dates from the 11th century with images carved right into the river bed. Its waterfall will also offer a very welcome cool-off! From Kbal Spean we continue north to the former Khmer Rouge stronghold of Anlong Veng, previously home to the likes of Khieu Samphan, Ta Mok, and ‘Brother Number One’, Pol Pot. This is where we spend our 3rd night.
Leaving Anlong Veng, we follow the Dangrek mountains east along the Thai-Cambodian border making our way to Preah Vihear. After an exhilarating ride to the top, we spend the afternoon exploring these ancient ruins and taking in the mountain top view across the border. That night you can choose to camp out on the temple grounds or stay at a local guesthouse.
After descending Preah Vihear Mountain, we ride through the open countryside and lush jungles to the remote temple of Koh Ker, the former capital of Angkor, where you can choose to either camp overnight or stay in the nearby village of Kulen.
We leave Kulen village and pass through Tbeng Meanchey before beginning our journey through tiny villages, sweeping landscapes, and forests. A fantastic ride with a bit of a challenge to Stung Treng, where we stay the night.
We end our northern temple trail in a relaxing fashion, with a boat trip up the Mekong to the Laos border.
