To visit the reclining Buddha and shines, then cleanse myself under the waterfalls was truly life changing for me. The history of the Lingas & understanding what that mountaintop and water has meant to that culture touched my heart. It changed me! What a great place!

There are 3 main 'activities' here: the Thousand Lingas in the river, the wat and the waterfall. The entrance fee is about US$20 (it's not included in the Angkor Pass) and it's too far, and too steep, for a tuk tuk so you'll need to hire a car and driver. The road is supposed to be one-way up before 11am... More

Coolest spot in or near Siem Reap. Top spot for families and a cool swim. Bit of a way out of Siem Reap but worth the $20 per adult and the bumpy 1hr car ride.

Fantastic location to visit in Siem Reap. Hire a bike/scooter if you can to make this one of the best days out in the area. The waterfall is a great place to cool off - make sure you walk down to the big waterfall at he base of the steps. There's a mesmerizing fresh water pool that bubbles up through... More

Mt Kulen is a couple of hours from Siem Reap by car. The car and driver will not be particularly cheap and then you need to add on the $20 fee per person to access the mountain. And if you want to visit a temple or two on the way back , then of course you need to add on... More

Kulen Mountain visit was interesting to see the 1000 ShivLingas under water. We also saw some beautiful idols of Vishnu and Lakshmi (Indian Gods) under water. There was a beautiful waterfall. The reclining Buddha was beautiful. Do carry water along, as it can be very hot, you need to walk to reach the specific spot.

I thought this was a cool change of pace from the temples, but the drive is about 2 hours from Siem Reap by car, since the last half hour is spent on winding mountain roads. I think I enjoyed it because there weren't a ton of tourists there when we were there (around 10 am on a Monday in late... More

This is a really good day tour from Siem Reap. The highlight for me was the reclining Buddha which was carved out of the mountain about 1100 years ago....pretty impressive. Around the Buddha there are various interesting temples and monuments. Then its worth seeing the 1000 linga in the river whích is unique to me. Finally the walk down to... More

Nice scenic waterfall area but you have to go down the steps. Upon reaching the bottom there are swings decorated with plastic leaves and flowers, dont sit on it unless you dont mind paying! Actually, this is the quarry for Angkor building blocks, not exactly at the waterfall but areas nearby. The river flow from the waterfall down the mountain... More

On the top of Kulen mountain there are a lot of places to visit such beautiful waterfall, 1000 linga on the kulen river, the huge Buddha in the peak of the mountain.The mountain is used as the ancient capital city by king Jayavaraman II in 9th century....
