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

Nice place, nice walks in the middle of nature. After hot angkor Wat its a very refreshing retreat. Waterfalls are clean and good

Really popular with the locals on a weekend so best to go mid week. You must get there at a certain time to go up the mountain as traffic is one way. Nice waterfall to cool off and you must visit the giant Buddha lying on its side well worth a look.

Again - you will need the Angkor pass to get in.. The waterfall is down to a trickle during low reason and is disappointing, but the trip itself was well worth it. Even though the trek itself wasn't that bad, the heat/humidity makes it harder. On the plus side, the whole trail was clean and well maintained by workers..

Visited the waterfalls and kids had a lovely time swimming in the small pool below the falls. The venue is a favourite with locals and tourists who want a break from the scorching heat and a free fish massage in the waters. To get to the falls, it's a short walk down on a well marked trail and down a... More

Waterfall, gigantic Reclining Buddha statue, Riverbed Carvings, Having picnic under the shade, by the river, Phnom Koulen is at no doubt the best place in Siem Reap to do, as a resident here we I never get tired of our repeated trip. However, why we should just do that again and again when there are so much and many things... More

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I spent 3 days touring the Siem Reap, and we went here on the last day, maybe a 90-minute drive from the city. Highlights include the Lingga carvings, underwater in a river (hardly anyone there); the 500-year-old reclining Buddha at a monastery high on the mountain (lots of people); and a waterfall... More

An hour or so trip from siem reap. Makes for a great half day tour. We visited the rock carvings in the river bed, a Buddhist village and the famous waterfalls where we had a nice swim. Great trip and a lovely drive. We paid 32$/person for a van ride from town which included all fees. Well worth it. Bring... More
