Adventure Day Trip Tours

  

  


We can organize trips all over the country. Below are a few options and suggestions.


There are many adventure trips available around Cambodia suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. No trip to Cambodia is complete without seeing at least some location which is not part of the Angkor Complex. All locations we visit are completely safe and land mine free.

Kulen Mountain 
Full Day Tour Cost $128USD
(Includes Transportation and Tour Guide)
The ticket cost $20 per person.

The Kulen Mountain or Phnom Kulen is a National Park. It is an isolated mountain located in Svay Leu District, 48km from Siem Reap. Its highest point is 487 meters.

This is widely regarded as the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire. During the constructional period of the ancient temples in the ninth century, sand stones were brought from this sacred mountain to Angkor. It was here at Phnom Kulen that King Jayavarman II proclaimed independence from Java in 802 A.D.


The site is known for its carvings representing fertility and its waters hold special significance to the people of Cambodia. Just a few inches under the surface of the water, over 1000 carvings of Yoni and Linga are etched into the sandstone riverbed. 


The waters are regarded as holy, given the sacred carvings which also include a stone representation of the Hindu god Vishnu lying on his serpent Ananta, with his wife Lakshmi at his feet. A lotus flower protrudes from Vishnu’s navel bearing the god Brahma. The river then ends with a beautiful waterfall. 


Phnom Kulen is regarded highly by Cambodian people as a sacred location and has developed into a great tour destination.

Bird Sanctuary at Prek Toal

Boat trips to Prek Toal take about two hours from Chong Kneas boat dock. Upon arrival we'll meet at Prek Toal Environmental Research Station for a guided tour to birds sanctuary. 


The Research Station has information on the area's flora and fauna. There are also basic overnight accommodations at the Research Station if you want to stay the night to take full advantage of the sunset and early morning viewing hours. 


The entrance free for birds watching for two persons cost $25 each, 3 person $20 per person including boat guided tour to birds sanctuary. Your entrance fees are used to help promote responsible tourism in Cambodia, and contributes to the conservation of the area, particularly educating children and villagers about the importance of the birds and the unique flooded forest environment. All your fees go through to local communities. 


The 'bird sanctuary' at the Prek Toal area of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve has been called "the single most important breeding ground in Southeast Asia for globally threatened large water birds."   

The Biosphere covers 31,282 hectares at the northwest tip of the Tonle Sap Lake and plays host to species including Greater and Lesser Adjuncts, Black-headed Ibis, Painted Stork, Milky Stork, Spot-billed Pelican, Grey-Headed Fish Eagle and many more species. Of the three Biosphere core areas on the Tonle Sap Lake, Prek Toal is the most popular with birdwatchers. 


The best time to explore is the dry season between December to May when flocks of migratory birds congregate at Prek Toal. While the dry season progresses and the water recedes, the number of birds increase, but tours to some of the more important viewing areas becomes more difficult. That's why it requires a small motorboat rental to take a 1-hour trip to the sanctuary.

Koh Ker Temples Group & Beng Mealea Temple
Full Day Tour Cost $190USD (Includes Transportation and Tour Guide) 
The temple pass costs 15 USD per person.


Koh Ker Temples it was built under the reign of the kings Jayavarman IV and Harshavarman II. Koh Ker was briefly the capital of the whole empire (928–944 AD). Jayavarman IV forced an ambitious building program. An enormous water-tank and about forty temples were constructed under his rule.


The most significant temple‑complex, a double sanctuary (Prasat Thom/Prang), follows a linear plan and not a concentric one like most of the temples of the Khmer kings. Unparalleled is the seven‑tiered and 36-metre (118 ft) high pyramid, which most probably served as state temple of Jayavarman IV. Really impressive too are the shrines with the two‑meter 6 ft 7 in high lingas.


Under Jayavarman IV the style of Koh Ker was developed and the art of sculpture reached a pinnacle. A great variety of wonderful statues were chiselled. Because of its remoteness the site of Koh Ker was plundered many times by looters.


Sculptures of Koh Ker can be found not only in different museums but also in private collections. Masterpieces of Koh Ker are offered occasionally at auctions. These pieces in present times are considered stolen art. 


The site is about two and half hours away from Siem Reap, and basic visitors' facilities are now being built. This makes Koh Ker very attractive for anyone who would like to experience lonely temples partly overgrown by the forest. 


Since 1992 the site of Koh Ker is on the UNESCO tentative world heritage list.


On the way back to Siem Reap we will visit Beng Mealea Temple. It was built as a Hindu temple, but there are some carvings depicting buddhist motifs. 


Its primary material is sandstone and it is largely unrestored, with trees and thick brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards and many of its stones lying in great heaps. 


For years it was difficult to reach, but a road recently built to the temple complex of Koh Ker passes Beng Mealea and more visitors are coming to the site, as it is 77 km from Siem Reap by road.


The history of the temple is unknown and it can be dated only by its architectural style, identical to Angkor Wat, so scholars assumed it was built during the reign of king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. Smaller in size than Angkor Wat, the king's main monument, Beng Mealea nonetheless ranks among the Khmer empire's larger temples: the gallery which forms the outer enclosure of the temple is 181 m by 152 m. It was the center of a town, surrounded by a moat 1025 m by 875 m large and 45 m wide.

Preah Vihear Temple
Full Day Tour cost $285USD (includes Transportation and Tour Guide) 

Preah Vihear temple is quite a big northern province of Cambodia. Its capital is called Phnom Tbeng Meanchey. The province itself is named after the temple of Prasat Preah Vihear, what is definitely the hotspot of this province. Much of the province is extremely remote and strongly forested.

Unfortunately, large logging companies have reduced the natural landscape by carving huge tracts of pristine tropical hardwoods out of the area.

It is also one of the least populated provinces in the Kingdom of Cambodia. This tranquil site is popular for the Preah Vihear temple, standing in the vicinity of the border between Thailand and Cambodia.

The province has one of the worst infrastructures in the country there are even no proper Major Roads in existence. Going around this province is not that easy if you're used to proper roads and usual transportation possibilities, as there are only a few pick-ups or some money-hunting moto drivers to take you where you would like to go.
Banteay Chhmar Temple
Full Day Tour Cost $230USD 
(includes Transportation and Tour Guide) 

Banteay Chhmar Temple is truly one of Cambodia’s national treasures. Dating from the Angkorian period, it is a precious and irreplaceable link to the cultural heritage of the Khmer people.

There are countless Buddhist images and startling bas-reliefs of Angkorian-era life that signify its importance as a temple complex.


For 800 years, the temple has remained mostly undiscovered and untouched. The forces of nature resulting in overgrowth and collapse. Recent times, unfortunately, have seen numerous acts of egregious looting. 


In some ways, after 800 years, Banteay Chhmar still remains the same. Most people still make their livelihoods through farming, fishing and handicrafts. As the infrastructure in the area improves, hopefully more people will see improvements in their lives.

Battambong Province 
Full Day Tour Cost 180USD  (includes Transportation and Tour Guide)

Battambang is Cambodia's second-largest city and the capital of Battambang Province, which was founded in the 11th century. It is the former capital of Monton Kmer and lies in the heart of the Northwest of Cambodia.

Until the war years, in which almost all infrastructure was destroyed, it was the leading rice-producing province of the country.

The name Battambang or Batdambang, literally means "loss of stick" referring to a legend of the Preah Bat Dambang Kranhoung (Kranhoung Stick King). The population is nowadays around 250,000 people.

It's a riverside town, home to some of the best-preserved French colonial architecture in the country. Until recently Battambang was off the map for road travellers, but facilities have recently improved and it makes a great base for visiting the nearby temples, such as Phnom Banon and Wat Ek Phnom, as well as the close villages.
Ratanakiri is located in Cambodia's far northeast bordered by Laos to the north, Vietnam to the east, Mondulkiri to the south, and Stung Treng to the west.

This rural rugged province is a 70% ethnic minority, which are known as Chunchiet.

Ratanakiri was as recently as 2002 seriously off the beaten track but has since been "discovered" step by step. Still, while you won't get any bragging rights for coming here, it's well worth the effort to do so, and once you get away from it's capital Banlung you won't run into too many other tourists.

So Ratanakiri is still a remote province in Northeastern Cambodia worth to visit. The word "Ratanakiri" itself is a derivative of two Cambodian words, which are combined to mean "place of gems and mountains." The word comes from the Sanskrit words Ratna (gem) and giri (mountain).


By the Vietnam border, Ratanakiri and its capital Ban Lung, is famous for its dusty red earth and its jungle atmosphere which hosts fertile fields for growing rubber trees, peanuts, etc. Though it takes a whole day to get there, visiting the waterfalls, the crater lake and the minority hill tribes makes the trip worthwhile.

Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital city of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, is what was once considered the 'Gem' of Indochina. The capital city still maintains considerable charm with plenty to see. It exudes a sort of provincial charm and tranquillity with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture.

Phnom Penh is a veritable oasis compared to the modernity of other Asian capitals. A mixture of Asian exotica, the famous Cambodian hospitality awaits the visitors to the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia.


Here in the capital, are many interesting touristy sites. Beside the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda, the National Museum, the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, the Choeng Ek Killing Fields and Wat Phnom, there are several markets selling carvings, paintings, silk, silver, gems and even antiques. 


An ideal destination for a leisurely day tour. The whole area including the outskirts of Phnom Penh is about 376 square kilometres. There are currently 2,009,264 people living in Phnom Penh.
