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

Ta Keo temple of another amazing archeological site of Angkor Wat, located adjacent to the immense Angkor Thom, this temple is the right place for beautiful photographs, its peculiarities are the three spire towers that rise above the temple, definitely an attraction do not miss out.

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.

This temple was never finished. Legend says that construction was stopped after it was struck by lightning, an unlucky omen. Climb the steep staircase to the top for a lovely view of the countryside. Best to visit in the early mornings after Ta Prohm.

And you have been warned. They do have signs saying that deciding to climb up is 'to take your own risks'. However if you're not scared of height, this can be a good memory! Try to reach it early because it's no good climbing up under heavy sun. You paid the fee all together with the pass you bought at... More

Bring long pants and sleeves or you won't be key up the temple stairs! Bring water. Guide or book will enhance experience. I preferred my book. Diy. Biking hard- rent a tuktuk or motorbike ($10-12.) See at least a few different temples because they all are a bit different! Best: Angkor wat, ta Prohm (tomb raider temple), bakheng (views great,... More

We didn't visit this temple but did stop to admire its height and structure from a far. An older temple this stands extremely tall and is currently being refurbished. Its size is impressive and if we had had more time then I would have liked to have climbed its height for the views. Alas time and probably my ability to... More
