Explore Kulen Mountain by leaving your hotel at 8:00am, about 1hour 30mn to drive there, and on the journey you’ll be able to see both rural villages and beautiful views of the Cambodia countryside, especially as we ascend. When we arrive there are lots of things to see, including of course the magnificent waterfall, where you can swim if you would like to. There is also a huge reclining of Buddha carved out of the mountain side, and the sacred carved river bed which is said to bless all of the water flowing down into Siem Reap. Phnom Kulen is considered a holy mountain in Cambodia, and is of special religious significance to both Hindus and Buddhists who come to the mountain in pilgrimage.

It also has a major symbolic importance for Cambodians as the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire, for it was at Phnom Kulen that King Jayavarma II proclaimed independence from Java in 804 CE. Jayavarman II initiated the cult of the king, a Linga cult. See Higham’s The Civilization of Angkor for more information about the debate).

During the Angkorian era the relief was known as Mahendraparvata (the mountain of Great Indra). You can enjoy your own lunch at local restaurant.Afternoon: Visit Preah Ang Thom, is a 16th century Buddhist monastery notable for the giant reclining Buddha, the country’s largest. The Samré tribe was formerly living at the edge of Phnom Kulen, quarrying sandstone and transporting it to the royal sites. Then will be back at 4pm and arrive hotel about 17pm. The tour ended.
