Koh Ker Discovery

Double Hit of Lost Temples

Deep in the forest, a former capital of the Khmer Empire, Koh Ker ( Preah Vihear Province) includes a series of ruins around a baray. Khmer Ways decided to offer this tour as a overnight trip ( including Beng Mealea ), as on a one day tour, which is offered by several tour operators, the customers will not have the chance to visit most of the temples due to time pressure. Apart from the impressive 7-tier pyramid, there are several other outstanding ruins, like the giant lingas and the magnificent elephant temple.

Beng Mealea, known as the jungle temple, offers stunning photography opportunities of roots intertwining with temples walls. The grounds cover more than one square kilometer, with lush, overgrown vegetation.

Day 1:

Departure from Siem Reap at 8.30 am.

Once out of town, we will ride hidden trails and winding tracks through rice fields and bamboo shrouded villages. Our unique route selection keeps you off the roads to the highest degree possible. It is a fairly easy and very scenic ride.

Our first stop will be the small but rarly visited temple of Chau Srei Vibol. It is set on top of a small hill surrounded by forest and also features a new and very colourful pagoda and a monastery at the foot of the hill.

Afterwards the tour will head to the Jungle temple of Beng Mealea. As it covers huge grounds, we will stop there for the rest of the morning, before having lunch and heading north to Koh Ker.

The afternoon will be spend visiting several smaller temples and climbing the impressive 7-tier pyramid for beautiful views over the surrounding areas.

Dinner and accommodation in Koh Ker
