This was a highlight of our stay. We were picked up from our accommodation, taken to the park and viewed the waterfalls. It had been dry for a while so I was a bit worried that the water was not running as well as it could, but was not disappointed. We swam in the pond at the bottom of the... More

it's quite a comfortable 2 hour drive to the mountain. The last stretch of the road is in poor condition but nothing too worry about. Again guide is important as the thousand lingas and the spring water have quite a bit of significance in Cambodian Culture.S you may wanna hear the right bit of info. The reclining Buddha is strictly... More

We didn't have much time in Cambodia so decided to get the driver and the guide through the hotel to save time. It cost us $80 american dollars and to be honest it wasn't worth it. It is an OK trip if you don't have anything else to do, or if you have plenty of time. The waterfall is certainly... More

was kinda pricey to get to Kulen Mountain, but the water fall, 1000 lingas carving and the scenic drive kinda made it worthwhile. And if you have seen so many temples around Angkor Wat etc, this side trip is refreshing :) :)

I did a tour that cost 35$ and took us to the "1000 lingas", the reclining buddha, and the waterfall. It was nice to have a swim and have a day off from visiting temples but I regret doing that tour. It was not worth the money as you only get to spend one hour at the waterfall. If I... More

This is a location with a large reclining Buddha and some small shrines to see, then head over to where the river/waterfalls are and spend some time there. There are some restaurants. We went in a regular Camry with a driver, the road is OK until you get some of the places going up and down the hill where I... More

IF you want to do something more than just temple this is the trip for you. We took a car and a guide and got there. It's an easy trip and the highlight is swimming in the cool water of the waterfall.

We were very hesitant about going here after reading the mixed trip advisor reviews. We found all the criticisms were unfounded and so glad we decided to go. Our boys 7&11 loved the whole experience. It was the highlight of their stay in Siem reap. They were completely over temples so this was a great way to get away from... More
