There’s more to Cambodia’s ancient marvels than Angkor! Learn more about the country’s mysterious past on a thrilling day trip to the Phnom Bok Mountain Temple from Siem Reap. It’s a dizzying climb up 640 steps to the mountaintop temple, but you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the Kulen Mountains and the distant Angkor Wat. After exploring the dramatically situated temple complex, descend the mountain and visit nearby Banteay Samre, famous for its beautiful 9th-century Hindu temples.

I would not recommend this tour for anyone with back, hip, or knee issues. There is a LOT of climbing and the stairs are a bit irregular in construction and quite steep. Nothing like walking up the stairway at Mt. Popa in Myanmar. That said, the tour guide was fantastic and professional, he even added in a stop at Banteay Samre on our way to lunch, which was not included on the original itinerary. The view from the mountain top made the hike worth it and it was neat to see some of the temple ruins that predate the building of Angkor Wat.
