This place is cleansing and worth the visit. Unfortunate us humans have visited and left our mark. The locals are very welcoming and they also want to ensure the day out with family near the "Holy Water" Best to hire a local guide + van/car and take the whole day to ensure the country side! Negotiate the costs as it... More

Waterfall was great to visit and enjoy the cool mist that was in the air. Can rent a inner tube and life vest to go for a swim. Changing your clothes won't be an issue, they have cabins for that on site. Beautiful place!

After the build up of how nice it was, we found it quite disappointing. The park is very littered, poorly maintained and very crowded. The water is dirty and facilities on site are very poor. To get to the bottom, you have to descended steep steal stairs, which is not a problem, except that these had spots with broken and... More

If you want a secondary view of Siem Reap apart from Angkor ruins, Kulen is a nice destination. I read this place is known to be the birthplace of the Angkor empire. You get to see the countryside and the beautiful plains when going to the top (or going down). You have to get there by car since it is... More

The highlight of the day was taking a swim at the waterfall @ Kulen Mountain National park. The water is consider as "holy water" as it pass thru the 1000 lingas and Buddha carvingd at the upper stream. BTW this waterfall was the one that Angelina Jolie jump off in the movie "tomb raider". After that we visit a few... More

We went there early in the morning and only few people where there. Swimming in the water was a perfect refreshment after days of visiting the temples in the hot climate. Around noon a lot of people arrived - so better come early. The buddha is huge but otherwise the temple is not so impressive and the few over from... More

The hotel we stayed at told us that Kulen mountain and the thousand lingas was worth a visit. The trip to there was 1.5 hours journey, with poor air conditioning. On reaching, we had to walk up to a budhha statue. Enroute was a terribly sad dispay of dead wildlife: giant squirrel tails, the head (several) of a wild goat... More

We arranged transport to the mountain at our hotel which was quite expensive at $80 for two people. The driver was really nice, spoke a bit of English and brought us cold bottles of water for the trip. First of all he took us to buy our tickets to get up the mountain ($20 each). Overall the trip was well... More

Another great activity to be done while in Siem Reap, but a bit expensive due to travelling cost which is quite far from the city. The travelling time itself takes about 90 minutes through some small village and unexpectedly quite good road condition. Generally there are 3 main locations to visit here - The Sleeping Buddha, 1000 Lingas and the... More
