A visit to Siem Reap is not complete without a day at Kulen. There is so much to see and do there, and there are many artifacts and temples also. A swim at the lower waterfall is refreshing and you will want to stay in there for hours. The little fish will nip at your feet like in the massage... More

It's a pleasant ride from Siem Reap and worthwhile. You will know you are far from home from the time you enter the park, from the pavilions without tables to the "restrooms." But the waterfall is impressive and it's a great place to visit.

This is such a worthwhile trip to make during a visit to Siem Reap. There is so much stuff going on all over the area and it gives a great insight into local life. The waterfall is a great place for a swim and there are some good cheap restaurants around the top of the waterfall.

This is a must see for those that visit Cambodia, ... and a visit to Cambodia includes the Angkor temples, right? well, Mount Kulen is the place where the Khmer empire was born and established when the king (Jayavarman?) then announced freedom from Java. This is also the place where the stones for building the Angkor temples came from. See... More

Wow! Was worth the trip out! Driving up the hill that's only open one way for half a day so traffic can go up, for the rest of the day it goes the other way. This is due to the narrowness of the road. Spectacular views from the top looking into the valley. There are lots if people asking for... More

A group of us travelled here on motos with Adventure Siem Reap. We passed through a variety of villages and saw some of the "real" Cambodia. There is also some spectacular jungle scenery as the road winds its way up the mountain to the village of Ang Thom, the home a large reclining Buddha carved into the rock. This is... More

Went on a Sunday and the place was 90% Khmer people which personally I look for when travelling. The waterfall was fantastic - beautiful water and amazingly cool at the bottom compared with the heat at the top. Highly recommended.

Waste of time and tourist rip-off. Dirty park, with some newish temples. Was told to pay some little girl money because I was told to take shoes off and she was guarding them! The waterfall is fine, but nothing special. Used one of the tire tubes, lying by the water and was then told I had to pay $1 for... More
