It’s a quick walk from the bottom of the mountain (15-20min), you also can drive up to the very top. The view is stunning, however literally right after sunset a guard came with a whistle and kicked everybody out. Staying up there for 20-30 min more would have provided a much more beautiful view (sky was not red yet). Pretty unfortunate - still worth a visit I’d say.

It is 30 minute drive from Siem Reap and then a short and steep walk up to the top. The temples itself are not very impressive after visiting Angkor Wat. But if offers stunning views over the nearby villages and the surrounding wetlands of Tonle Sap. You should come here to see the sunset! As the entry fee is already included within the Angkor Pass, it is a good half-day option to calm down after exhausting days in Angkor.

Best views in Siem Reap, you can see view of Siem Reap town from top of mountain, also view of Tonle Sap lake and Koulen mountain. It easy to step up.

CAUTION: Getting to Phnom Krom requires a strenuous climb up a small mountain. There is pretty much only one way to get to the top and that is via an initial set of stairs; and a shorter set of stairs to get to the modern temple. Getting to the ancient temple ruins and the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside requires another hike through a couple of shorter sets of stairs. I will be 70 in three weeks and made it just fine with a well-paced number of rest stops but my much younger posse was whining and sucking wind all the way (although I know my body will pay for it tonight). Take a couple of bottles of water -- you'll need them.

Phnom Krom is another of those out-of-the way temples that are part of the Angkor Wat complex (and you will get checked for a pass halfway up the mountain).

The tuki-tuk ride out isn't very pleasant -- the roads are primitive and teeth-rattling but fun nonetheless if you like exploring.

I give it a 5-star rating largely because it is such an adventure getting there, although the temple ruins at the top are small but stunning; other folks probably would give it a 2. The modern temple is nothing to write home about, although the great views begin there. The ruins at the peak are fascinating but in some ways overshadowed by the 360° view.

Going back down is a cakewalk, and at the end you say, "Wow! I did it" and immediately buy a beer from the nice lady who runs the tiny shop at the base of the first set of stairs.

One more caution: Do not tackle it unless you are sure you can make the top, especially on a hot day, which is most of them in Kampuchea.

One of the greatest temple on top of mountain where you are able to see fantastic bird view of Tonle sap lake and villages surrounding the mountain. The best time is sun rise or sun set and because of this temple is located on top of mountain so we are able to cycle up which is a key part of exercise. I do believe you won't cycle to the top if it is your first time cycling up.
Come and experience I believe you will be amazed.

Not too far from Siem Reap, this busy temple is very old and takes 10 minutes to see but the view of Tonle Sap Lake (which virtually surrounds it during the rainy season) is beautiful, especially at sunset. The fun part is that many locals picnic, relax and play music on the way up so the scene is very entertaining. Don't forget to get blessed by a monk once at the top.

I bicycled there, along the river road, saw lots of communities, had a cold drink from some kids. Climbing the steps is good exercise. If you don't have a valid Angkor ticket, you can pay $5 to continue up the steep hill to the ruins (and a working Wat). It is quite a hike but I met some local people and they wanted to take my photo. I guess not many barang walk up, because there is a road that cars and motorbikes can climb. At the temple are people selling drinks and snacks, and some Monks. The ruins are small but have a few nice carvings. It isn't a crowded place and the people are glad to see you. Also there are nice views of TOnle Sap and the villages on it.

This temple is very worth visiting if you are spending a couple of days in Siem Reap. You will see Cambodians going up the hill in groups, and will be able to enjoy an amazing view from the top. I took a motorcycle and biked there myself. The entrance ticket is the same as for Angkor temples, but after 5:30p.m., it is free.

My favourite temple of the visit a bit more effort required to reach than the main circuit but stunning views on the way up,and then to be there alone was very atmospheric with the adjoining monastry an added extra.
