The area is a magnet to “kru khmer” (natural medicine doctors), and attracts people seeking blessings from its holy waters, particularly the potent life-giving waters at Kbal Spean, that are said to help couples conceive.Enjoy taking pictures and your expert guide will tell the story, the Linga-Cult. Once you are at the highest point of the area, you will feel why the ancient Khmer king built it on top of the mountain. Other than temples, visit here as a nature lover.

    Cycle through the jungle & visit Beng Mealea Temple. Stay overnight at a local house.

Breakfast will be provided on the site; today light lunch box will be prepared. Everyone would need to be prepared for long way cycling in the jungle and very isolated villages along the Kulen Mountain range. It is a great challenging cycling, narrow path in the jungle, rocky at some parts of the loop. So, you need to be very challenged for your own need (food and energy). 

The adventure journey will start from Wat Preah Kral along the mountain range to Svay Leu, the loop is difficult we cannot ride fast and sometime we need to carry the bikes, picnic boxed lunch we will be on the way and continue to ride further. On arrival at Svay Leu we stop for snacks and drinks. 

Cycle to Beng Melea temple on the good and paved road for 15km, on arrival we will take around 1 hour to visit this incredible temple, it still in the original shape with tree and jungle covered, very ruins. Beng Melea was constructed by King Suryavarman II (1113-1150). It preceded and may have served as a prototype of sorts for Angkor Wat. Contrary to Angkor, few carvings or bas-reliefs are evident. Today the temple is largely overrun by vegetation and the stone walls are crumbling which adds to its charm in a unique way. Dinner and overnight at local guesthouse in Koh Ker. 

Fantastic jungle experience at Beng Mealea Temple

Beng Mealea or Bung Mealea is a temple from the Angkor Wat period. It is located 40 km east from the main group of temples at Angkor, Siem Reap, on the ancient royal highway to Preah Khan Kompong Svay. Beng Mealea was built as a Hindu temple, but some carvings depict Buddhist motifs. Its primary material is sandstone and it is largely unrestored, with trees and thick brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards and many of its stones lying in great heaps. The history of the temple is unknown and it can be dated only by its architectural style, identical to Angkor Wat, so scholars assumed it was built during the reign of king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on September 1, 1992 in the Cultural category.Beng Mealea is largely unrestored and off the beaten path, with trees and brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards. You can wander around a huge maze, looking at stones and columns lying in great heaps, and explored semi-collapsed tunnels. It is definitely not as many tourists as Angkor Wat!If you are a bit tired of Angkor & looking for an extraordinary place without tons of people, just head to Beng Mealea.

Breakfast at the site and today you will cycle to Koh Ker Temple on the main paved road the traffic is not really busy because this area is not developed yet.

Ends of services.

Amazing Pyramid Temple of Koh Ker

Located in Preah Vihear province, Koh Ker temple is an amazing pyramid temple you should visit and you will learn more about it when you go with your guide. It is a spectacular area of ​​temples other than Angkor (120 km / 2 hours drive from Siem rep), less touristy for now and in the process of being applied to be considered a UNESCO heritage site. Koh Ker was once a thriving city with over 10.000 inhabitants and was even the capital of the Khmer Empire between 928 AD and 944AD during the reigns of Jayavarman IV and Harshavarman II. Today what is left are dozens of temples in the area which are mostly covered by dense jungle. The most important remaining structure is the complex of the double sanctuary Prasat Thom / Prang.The one of the great pyramid (very similar to that of Chichen Itza in the Mayan Riviera) and which can be climbed on wooden stairs through one side (36 meters). The coolest part is that you get to go on top of it, how many ancient pyramids can you do that on? From top of the temple you can see the east jungle surrounding the complex and it still has many engulfed temples. The view from there is awesome: no buiding, no village, no car or no man, just tree and jungle.
