Day 1: Siem Reap to Kulen Mountain ( L , D )
We will leave Siem Reap, and make our way to the base of the mountain, on awesome single track, exciting forest trails, and dirt roads. The climb to the top is about 14km and offers great views of the surrounding countryside. By the time we reach the summit, it will be lunch after which you can check out the waterfall and river carvings. Freshen up in the cooling mountain water. Then, jumping on exciting single track we will head to the Bat Cave, where there are caves that go deep into the mountainside with hidden shrines inside. Then on to Srah Damrei, the famous stone elephant hidden away in the dense forest; carved out of the mountain itself it is an amazing sight to behold. We will then make our way to the village of Anglong Thom where we will camp for the night. You will get a real feel for local life here.
Day 2: Kulen to Siem Reap ( B , L )
After breakfast, there are more temples you can explore, or you can check out the sleeping Buddha of Preah Ang Thom; carved atop an enormous hill-sized boulder. We will then make our way back down the mountain where we will head back to Siem Reap on similar trails. There are many options depending how you are feeling. If there is time we can catch sunset at the West Barey.
