Maybe about 100m tall mountain, and a few hundred steps. There are two ways up. From the way near the food stalls, you may be greeted by a young "guide" who will show you the treks around the top. Just tip him or her $1-2...More

Be prepared for a climb!! A lot of steps up to the summit. There's modern buildings there also but the Temple ruins are the one. Go round the back of the ruins to see the views, and the lines between the other buildings below too.

Please go in the early mornings or late afternoon as you have to climb to the top of quite a steep hill. Great view though. Takeo has some great photo opportunities.

My view is probably biased after visiting so many temples in Phnom Penh and throughout Cambodia, but I didn`t think Phnom Chisor had anything worthy of saying: "OMG, it was really worth it traveling two hours by moto to get here". Of course, the ancient...More

Loved the temple on the top of the mountain with 412 steps. It takes about 1 hour to see the around place.
