Great for adventurers, but a reasonable fitness level/bravery is required.

I have to say, this is probably the most unsafe temple in the complex to visit. The stairs are so narrow and so steep that in order to climb them all you WILL need to crawl (and... read more

Among the temples we visited this one was quite unique. It is one great big mass, which is very square and high! Be prepared to climbed the stairs!!! I noticed that many people, especially on group tours only stand in front, take a view and leave. But you should take the time to actually go in and climb the stairs.

I visited this tourist sight on 05/12/2016. The temple is quite old. Climbing into some places is a difficult task. You can see beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Ta Keo is worth visiting. Посетил эту достопримечательность 5.12.2016. Храм довольно старый и подъём в некоторых местах трудный. Сверху открывается красивый вид на соседние окрестности. Та Кео стоит посетить.

I have to say, this is probably the most unsafe temple in the complex to visit. The stairs are so narrow and so steep that in order to climb them all you WILL need to crawl (and getting down you will probably climb sideways/backwards). Each step is not large enough for a foot, and the steps are all different sizes.... More

Stunning in its own right, be aware lots of Stairs in this place the view is not to bad You need maby half hour here You will need to buy the admission pass (an 'Angkor Pass) Passes are sold in one-day ($20), three-day ($40) and seven-day ($60) blocks that must be used on consecutive days Worth the visit for sure.

This is quite a big complex. There are five towers, one (about 50m) in the centre, the others at the corners. It is worth making the effort to get to the top although the steps are narrow and quite steep. The degree of carving is small because Ta Keo was never finished.

I was determined to climb to the top...and of course back down again haha. There are three levels with great views from each level. Wear shoes that grip your foot and have a good rubber traction as many of the steps are worn down and a bit slippery because of the sand. I usually have no problems with height, but... More

This Temple has never been finished and that's why it's not decorated. The stairs are very steep and going up and down can be hard. The view from the top is amazing and really worth to visit.

Another Khmer temple, stunning and magnificent but after seeing many temples, you start to feel that they look the same, but still good to see.

This large ‘temple mountain’ dates back to the late 10th and early 11th centuries. Ta Keo was the first of these temples to be built entirely of sandstone and was never actually completed. The primary features are the steep steps that climb to the top. It doesn't have the intricate carvings and details of the other temples but is worth... More
