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

2 reasons why I wanted to go to Mount Kulen - Waterfall and Thousand Lingas. So worth the 1.5 hours of trip from Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) area.

Visiting Phnom Kulen was a great experience. We started of with a ride through dirt filled road before reaching a temple where reclining Buddha statue looks just awesome. It was a beautiful statue. Post this we went to Kulen waterfall which is mind blowing. It was fun to bath under waterfall for hours. You will love to stay there and... More

This is a little more expensive thing to do and about 50km outside of Siem reap but well worth it for a day trip. We had a guide for the day to take us to see the reclining Buddha, the thousand lingas and the waterfall and he was fantastic in telling us all the history and myths and legends that... More

This was one of the highlights of our Siem Reap trip. After walking up to the colossal Reclining Buddha, we were ready for a refreshing dip in the water. Highly recommend swimming up under the waterfall while the guppies nip away at your dead skin. There are bins you can lock your stuff in and wooden shacks to change clothes... More

This is an amazing waterfall and place and I loved it even on a rainy day. It's refreshing but warning a windy road towards the waterfall. Simply breathtaking

One must plan this visit if in Siem Reap. It can easily take half day to full depending on what one wants to do. Its around 90min drive from the city (taxi, will not advise tuk tuk for this), cutting through villages and green fields. It's hills and jungles there and two waterfalls are extremely refreshing. All can take dips... More
