Temple on summit of hill about 2 miles NW of Angkor Wat. A portion of the facade facing the west gate is visible in the distance through a break in trees but it is too small for most photography without a long lens. We arrived around 16:00 as recommended by our guide and walked up the approx 1/2 mile path through jungle to the summit of the hill and temple base. Steep stairs with hand railing to top level of temple afforded better view to the north and west. Over the next hour as the crowd in the summit grew to several hundreds we had occasional glimpses of sun accompanied by an increasing jumble of mobile phone dings, group portrait takes and ever intrepid narcissists with selfie sticks. In short, a good place to stretch your legs for a half hour or so but not to wait for sunset unless the weather is clear.

This temple is just past Angkor Wat and offers some great photo opportunities for sunset. It’s limited to 300 people up on top at any one time so if you want that sunset photo go early. We headed out of town at 4.30 and were some of the last to be permitted up, it looked like about 80 waited patiently at the bottom hoping someone would leave. So if you’re going to commit and its a busier time you may need to be earlier than this.

The visit to phnom bakheng starts with a nice little walk, currently it is only accessible via the elephant path because the backside of the temple is undergoing preservation efforts which block of the other route. If you manage to get to the top without being trampled by e an elephant you get great views of the surrounding area including angkor wat.

One of the most popular sunset points at Ankgor Wat complex . Easy to climb , beautiful views . The problem is the security allow only 300 people to the sunset top point , some people come early and don’t leave until sun goes down . You have to come 1 hour before sunset to wait on the line or so.

Although it is supposed to be great for sunsets, we could not stay for it. It might look a bit hard to climb up, it is well worth it.
