Interesting place

For most of the tourist points, the stairs / ladder is "after-made" - but this is still very "original" at the point of visiting.

This was my fourth temple after Phnom Bakheng, Thommanom, Chau Say Thevada. Slightly larger than the last 2 temples. Still remote enough to enjoy it by yourself. It is worth a visit if you do not mind climbing.

All the temples are impressive but some just aren't as good as others. That's Ta Keo. It's certainly cool all the steep steps you have to scale to get up there, but at the end of the day it was hard to see much and didn't bring anything special to the mix. Don't skip it but it shouldn't be high... More

Really incredible temple with lovely views. I would suggest having a bottle of water with you, as it's a (relatively short) steep climb to the top, and you'll be thirsty when you get there. Also, be aware that there are people at the top who will sweep in and try to "show" you the sights. If you've already hired a... More

It's constructed differently from other temples, because of it's small area and size. Also, the middle temple has a ziggurat-style stairs in the middle, though much steeper - you have to climb 2 stairs - one newer wooden one, and a stone stair where you have to climb like a rikishi due to it's small size. Once at the top,... More

This was the last climb we did after a long day at Angkor, and it is steep. The way up is fine, but I took it slow going down to be safe. It is not a place you want to slip. Other than that, the view is very nice from the top, so if you have the energy it's worthwhile.

The climb to the top of the sandstone is worth it as it offers great views of the surrounding area and there are a few good statues here. For me it lacks the intricacies or majesty of some of the other sites but worth seeing as part of the tour

Located inside the Angkor complex, this temple was my favorite attraction during my 5 days stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The sand stones are well preserved, and the way the stairs were created was amazing. It completes me when I reached the top of the temple and was so relaxed seeing the half of the province and smelling the fresh... More
