The drive is worth it. Our trip included a visit to the Buddha site which was well worth seeing. The water fall was spectacular as over night rains ensured there was plenty of water cascading over the falls.

My friends and I enjoyed this attraction and the scenery. It was quite a trek to get to with the very steep stairs but that made the water all the more inviting. Once under the waterfall it was very relaxing, felt like we were having a good hard massage. I'm pleased we went to the effort.

We decided to visit the national park as we had a few days in Siem Reap and fancied a change from the temples - we wish we hadn't. The park isn't well maintained and there is litter everywhere. Despite the waterfall being the main attraction, we we disappointed to see that it was dirty and full of rubbish. Not somewhere... More

Aside from the US $20 to get in,which I imagine from the locals complaints mostly goes into the big fat pockets of corrupt officials,there is nothing to warrant the time and cost to see this place. All the money collected from entry fees,is certainly not spent of the roads,or keeping the place maintained of from cleaning up the garbage. Although... More

Not much to say, it is a long drive the last part of the road some 10klm are terrible and full of dangerous pot holes. It takes over an hour after you get out of the Siem Reap traffic. Head up highway 6, You turn off to the left into highway 67 which is narrow and slow going, there are... More

Very relaxing and the waterfalls is breathtaking. Just be careful when you go to the big falls for you have to use a very steep stair cases. The small fishies swimming around will keep chasing your feet. (Free fish spa :p ) you can also rent a lifesaver for $1 if you just simply want to float around and a... More

Frankly, the description of the Kulen Mountain, the waterfall, the 1000 lingams, and the reclining Buddha temple didn't inspire me to visit. However, I loved it. Swimming in the pool below the waterfall was wonderful. The beautiful jungle reminded me of DisneyWorld. However, it was real, not contrived.The fish nibbling at my legs and feet was a little disconcerting. However,... More

A distance away from Siem Reap, Phnom Kulen is located at the top of a mountain. The drive up is a little bumpy. You can stop along the way for photographs. Bring spare clothes so you can swim at the waterfall. The water is clear and cool,a good way to beat the hot weather. The water at the waterfall is... More
