Private Full Day Koh Ker & Beng Mealea

08:00 - 16:00

Embrace your inner Indiana Jones and head into ancient jungle to explore hidden temples. In the morning, we drive deep into Cambodian countryside passing villages and forest populated by deer to Koh Ker (120 km). Sitting as the capital of the Angkor Empire from 928 to 944, it comprises of a series of temples and monuments dotted throughout 81 sq-km of jungle. Only a few temples are open to visitors, with Prasat Krahom and Prasat Thom the most visited.

We then continue to Beng Mealea temple. Engulfed by nature, this 12th century temple was built under Suryavarman II and is enclosed by a moat measuring 1.2 km by 900 m. Built to the same floor plan as Angkor Wat but on a smaller scale, this almost-forgotten temple comes without any of Angkor’s crowds. The site spans more than 1 sq-km and is largely overrun by vegetation. After a picnic lunch at the foot of the temple, we return to Siem Reap.

Please note: Visitors are required to keep their knees and shoulders covered at all sacred sites
