The road is real bad and will hurt your back. We went in January in the dry reason, the waterfall is not much, more like a community bath for everyone. Not high, not big and you wonder why I drive over 2 hours to get from Siem Reap to there. There is some carving in the stream, a temple. Total... More

If it's the dry season you will see some carvings in the rocks but not much of a waterfall, if it's the wet season you'll see the waterfall but no carvings. Not many carvings to see either, the other temples in the area are much better. Not worth the long drive and the extra money.

Phnom Kulen National Park is a good outing destination after your Angkor Temples visit. It is best to start the day early since the road to the national park has oneway going up until noon and reverse oneway coming down after. The cost for the use of the road for visitor is $20 per person. Our hotel arranged a SUV... More

If you have the time it is worth a look as it is quite a long drive from Siem Reap and some of the roads are a bit rough. Just be aware the steps to the waterfall are very steep.

We really weren't sure what to expect on this day trip but it was great fun for us and our young kids. The drive up the mountain was exciting, a bit treacherous at times especially if you are afraid of heights, but the views of the country side are beautiful. The waterfalls are refreshing if you choose to just dip... More

We took a day tour to Phnom Kulen National park for $35/ each. This included the $20 entry fee, visit to the amazing submerged 1000 linga; Pagoda and 2 waterfalls. The water in Angkor Thom/ Angkor Wat was sourced from here. The king asked for 1000 linga's (Lord Shiva's stone motif) to be sculpted, so the water from the streams... More

It's a long drive to get to this waterfall but it's totally worth it. Bring a good cameraBring water shoes because the rocks can get slippery... and the fish nibble at your legs.

Took my family here during a holiday (we are expats who live in Phnom Penh - three kids aged 12,12 and 10). Was a bit dubious because of some reviews I had seen here and on other sites. We had a fun day. Fun for me is relative to where I am. In Cambodia it was a cool experience. If... More

Lychee Mountain. About an hour and half outside town. It's a bit different kind of National Park, not much hiking required. Our tour guy took us to three spots : the waterfall is the prettiest, it's a short walk down a trail with some steps, A giant Buddha laying on the side carved out rock, have to take off your...

Apart from temples and ruins, nature adventure in cambodia is such a thrill. I made this mountain adventure my 1st itinerary in siem reap. It is far from the city center and really gives you that rural feel. The trip to the mountain to see the waterfalls is already a thrill. I enjoyed it. It provides one soul a wider... More
