$175 per person for 2 and more per booking
Double Hit of the forgotten Temples

Deep in the forest, a former capital of the Khmer Empire, Koh Ker (Preah Vihear Province) includes a series of ruins around a baray. We offer this tour as a overnight trip (including Beng Mealea), as on a one day tour, which is offered by several tour operators, the customers will not have the chance to visit most of the temples due to time pressure. Apart from the impressive 7-tier pyramid, there are several other outstanding ruins, like the giant lingas and the magnificent elephant temple.
Beng Mealea, known as the jungle temple, offers stunning photography opportunities of roots intertwining with temples walls. The grounds cover more than one square kilometer, with lush, overgrown vegetation.

Day 1:

Departure from Siem Reap at 8.30 am.

Once out of town, we will ride hidden trails and winding tracks through rice fields and bamboo shrouded villages. Our unique route selection keeps you off the roads to the highest degree possible. It is a fairly easy and very scenic ride.
Our first stop will be the small but rarely visited temple of Kok Kyorng. A small hidden temple surrounded by forest.
Afterwards the tour will head to the Jungle temple of Beng Mealea. As it covers huge grounds, we will stop there for the rest of the morning, before having lunch and heading north to Koh Ker.
The afternoon will be spend visiting several smaller temples and climbing the impressive 7-tier pyramid for beautiful views over the surrounding areas.
Dinner and accommodation in Koh Ker.

Day 2:

After breakfast, set out on the walk around the temple complex. You will visit farms, traditional houses and see how different life is out here compared to bustling Siem Reap.
After the walk, we will have lunch and a last look around the temples before heading back to Siem Reap.
Return will be between 5-6 pm.
