we loved the day out to Kulen mountain. we combined it with visiting the outer temple of Banteay Srei and also pre-rup. incredibly rough road to the top of the hill, very slow going! the walk from the top through the villages to the waterfalls is lovely. beggars along the way as is common in Cambodia, our guide had bought...

It takes around 90 minutes to get here from town. We just joined a day tour and booked the night before. The ride was a van and we have 8 pax in total picked up from different hotels. The ride is long but a great way to see the country side. The last few kilometers is VERY bumpy! But if... More

It was absolutely amazing! The day I went the water was running strong and it was very clear. Everything around the water fall feels like you are in an enchanted forrest which is amazing- defiantly worth a day trip and don't forget to wear a t-shirt or some form of covering if you are a female out of respect! loved...

this an awful drive on crap roads. The swimming and picnic area is nice, nothing flash, good and cold/clean, worth a dip, the waterfall is nice but seeing it is a dodgy walk down bamboo steps, beware. There is an amazing temple to see built into and on the rock formations. Just beware the drive out.

I like to attempt to address complaints about a location and clarify why it receives the rating I give it in my reviews. If you treat Phnom Kulen as a full day relaxing excursion rather than a box to check as a place you visited you will be much happier with your experience. And recognize that no place in Cambodia...

It is a little far for the Siem Reap city and we had a little bit tired during we drove to this place. After we arrived everything green and nice view. It also has waterfall as well. I'm going to go this place again when I have time.

The drive to the mountain was rather long, but some views were already worth it on the way there. When going to Kulen, be sure to check out the giant stone Buddha. Up in the temple you can get some lovely shots of the mountain itself. Be sure to take some swimwear with you as the swim under the waterfall... More

We were regretting the long unpleasant bumpy drive to Kulen Mountain till we saw the waterfall. It is really awesome, generating such a beautiful splash and energy spreading to the whole area. The carved river was interesting to explain the amazing skills of stone carvers ages ago, to redirect river water. Be prepared for long ride.
