After a 45 minute ride from Battambang by tuk tuk, I wasn't willing to make the hill climb in 90+ degree temperatures and high humidity. It was $2 to ride on the back of a motorcycle to the top. Halfway up, be sure to visit the Killing Cave where innocent Cambodians were thrown to their deaths by the paranoid regime of Pol Pot. It was an eye opening experience of man's inhumanity especially to see the skulls of murdered victims. At the top of the hill was a temple complex which was picturesque. The view of the Cambodian countryside from the top was clear and spectacular on the day I visited. The breeze was refreshing and the walk down the stairs was shaded and a pleasant way to end the trip.
