Phnom Kulen Group Excursions, 1000 Linga River and Reclining Buddha
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.
