Phnom Kulen Group Excursions, 1000 Linga River and Reclining Buddha
From US$47.00
Overview
Visit Phnom Kulen Mountain on this full-day tour from Siem Reap that explores ancient Khmer sites in lush jungle surroundings. See a boulder carved into a reclining Buddha image, take in the River of a Thousand Lingas, and swim beneath Phnom Kulen Waterfalls, experiencing a landscape that many Cambodians consider sacred. Hear commentary from your guide about each site, and enjoy convenient hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Siem Reap for the scenic, 2-hour trip to Phnom Kulen Mountain, passing a landscape of tropical forest and rural communities in your air-conditioned vehicle.
The first stop of the day is a hilltop temple, where you’ll find a massive reclining Buddha carved directly into a sandstone boulder. Next, head to the River of a Thousand Lingas, exploring a riverbank adorned with ancient carvings of phalluses and Hindu gods.
Cool off at another sacred site, Phnom Kulen Waterfalls, which tumble into a wide basin that’s ideal for a midday swim or wade. Throughout the day, the guide will help bring the ancient sites to life by explaining their significance and symbolism, and you’ll have time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant before the return trip to Siem Reap.

Nice Guide!

Super informative and upbeat guide. He really seems to enjoy teaching you about the history, explaining about the culture and foods, and just showing you around his country. Learned a lot. Saw some great sites. Ask for “Chet” when you book your tour!More

Can be better

We went in a tour van, with a driver and a tour guide. Total of 8 tourists. The tour guide was not good in explaining the history or religious importance of phnom kulen. I overheard the other tour groups with a better guide.

When I went, they drove us up in a passenger van. We didn't have to walk. I believe however, that the road allows traffic up in one direction only. (so going up in the morning, and down in the afternoon)
