You are looking at $50-$60 for a taxi just to get there, plus another $20 per adult just to see a waterfall. Cambodians, of course, do not pay like for everything else even though 70% of them don’t pay taxes. $80-$100 to see a waterfall is a waste of money. Cambodians are extorting tourists this way

Pagoda, Waterfall and 1000 Lingas
Dec 2019
So there are 3 main activities here -

Kulen Waterfall - amazing must do and do take dip in pool
1000 Lingas - on the way and interesting place
Pagoda - a temple at top of mountain with huge reclining budha statue

All in all its a good full day plan and is recommended as it covers nature, history and local culture.

Also on the way you will get some good food options and joints

Beautiful - Water Falls , Village andlying Buda and views - A MUST.
Welworth the car drive with our guide , along a long forest dusty road you eventually arrive at a small village in the middle of no where - literally .They sell lots of Tourist items and food ( not sure about the food). Up some step steps to see a lying Buda - Amazing . followed by a short walk down steep steps to the 2 x waterfalls . When we visited it was packed with locals and tourists as it was a public holiday. On our return we stopped off at a viewing area ( that you would not know it was there) . Amazing views across the plateau. Tip ask to see the stone carving "Male and Female " done thousand of years ago in the river bed near by.

Amazing Trip
Jan 2020
We started from Siem Reap around 8 am, on the way bought tickets which is 20 USD per person kids no need tickets. 1.5 Hours Journey, half of the way road is good and rest is poor. First, we saw Reclining Buddha temple and walked from temple to waterfalls it's about 400 to 500 meters. Have steps around 100 to 200 Nos to climb down to see the waterfalls. They have a changing room in which some locals charge 0.5 USD per person to use it. The water was cold and very refereshing . A Must trip if you visit Siem Reap.

Jan 2020
beautiful waterfall in the park. was there early morning before it warmed up so it was slightly chilly but very quiet which was nice. paid a few dollars to get one of the platforms to sit on and would recommend as there isn't much else to do.

A beautiful place but a lot of tourists in November
Nov 2019
Our guide and driver took us through an ancient reservoir(no water now) and we saw pretty villages and rice paddies.The sacred Kulen mountain is the birthplace of the Angkorian era.You can only go up the mountain between 8 and 12 and then it's open to travel down.The river contains holy water and is crystal clear making it easy to see the Thousand Lingas carved into the river bed.The river sits at the base of Wat Preah Ang Thom which is an ancient temple.Many people go here to see the giant reclining Buddha only a certain amount at a time as it is very busy.We had to remove our shoes before the final ascent to the temple.We saw here many monks and local people which added to the atmosphere.Down we went and on down many steps to a waterfall where you could swim.People had been advised to wear modest clothing but sadly many stripped off to their underwear,a shame when it is such a holy mountain for the local people.So expect a place that is very busy but beautiful.
