Ta Nei, a jungle temple dedicated to Buddha is only accesible by walking or tuk tuk and very "untouristed" which makes for a wonderful experience.

This is a nice temple, not among my favorite but still nice to visit. By October 2014 it's under mayor reconstruction therefore is a little hard to actually enjoy the place. I hope that after the work is done, it well be much more accessible.

I stopped by in this site. The temple look stunning. I have been in this temple for the 4th times. Still I like to photographed this temple in different occasion and different angles. The temple look like pyramid but not precisely like the giza, but this is my favourite Cambodian pyramid. Some part of this tempe now is under restoration

There are pretty much stone stairs all the way from the bottom to the top at this temple (not quite sure about the first flight of stairs, but the second and third for sure are stone stairs) which are considerably more strenuous to climb than wooden ones at the other temples, so don't do the "climbing part" if you don't...

Ta Keo was unique in that there weren't many external decorations given that carving generally begins at the end and construction stopped short due to a lightning strike which caused the king to move and build a new temple a few km away. This was one of the few temples where you could climb the actual stone steps (many others... More

This temple had the steepest staircases to the towers among the temples we visited! Major restorations were being done on the back portion when we visited so we stayed mostly on the front and top portions.

if you visit this place, you should have a strong stamina to climb the ladder that was built here. you will enjoy the beauty of this temple when you reach the most of the top. advised to be careful when alighting from the temple because it is quite slope

Another temple that you need to climb to the top. Amazing view and very beautiful. Not much people when I was there so big chance to enjoy it by yourself without any noises and very peaceful. The top is very windy and breezy.

Granted, this temple was never completed, it is still developed enough for an interesting experience. The very highest point has a small Buddhist Shrine, with an open ceiling that creates a very dramatic photo opportunity when the sun is at it's highest point. A look out from there gives a decent view of the cambodian jungle as well.
