Climbing to the top is difficult as the steps are very big. hence advisable to visit early. Good vantage point for sunset as well. Carry a lot of water as its hot and humid.

Like: nothing like it, nice view from top Dislike: the staircase is very steep, especially going down. One Korean tourist tripped and fell down with some serious bruises and was in great pain, but she was taking pictures on the ground. She tripped over stones.

It was a wise decision to start here as the crowds had not yet arrived and climb up was really difficult. The morning energy definitely helped. Admittedly, because of the weather in September, the view from the top was nothing spectacular - just the barren grounds of the temple and the trees that surround it - but it felt like... More

One of the few temples where you can actually climb to the very top and see amazing views all around you. Sunsets here are supposed to be amazing but the rain put a dampner to our plans for this. Still worth visiting and please wear sensible shoes (steps are narrow and steep).

This was suggested by the tour desk from the hotel, as I mentioned that I wasn't impressed with Bakheng, probably also because of mistaken expectations. I really wanted a view of the sunset with some icon of Angkor Wat or at least its major temples. The benefit that Bakheng gives is that you're high up on the temple and see... More

I visited Pre Rup on two separate occasions. Once during the heat of the day (I don't recommend this as it's like walking through a kiln) and the other time at sunset. The colours at sunset were really quite spectacular. I highly recommend a trip here at the end of the day.

Pre rup is a well know mountain pyramid temple so an introduction is not be necessary. However I would like mention that although the sunset view is magnificent, it can be very crowded and can ruin the moment. If you want to take a panoramic photo of the temple, try the western entrance rather than the eastern entrance (where the... More

After an exhausting climb to Kbal Spean, we headed back to the Angkors and this one looks more treacherous than the other temples. Not many people scaled its heights by the time we visited it early in the afternoon. We just took photos from the outside.
