Cambodia Adventure Camping and Trekking 2 Days / 1 Night
(Phnom Kulen, Beng Mealea and Koh Ker)

Trip Profile

Camping in Cambodia has become possible after the Khmer Rouge has integrated all their forces into government forces in 1998. Then demining projects have been implemented around Cambodia for rural development and operning new places for tourists. In early 2000, Beng Mealea temple has been demined. As a result, it was choosen to shoot the in the movie starred by Indiana Jones later on. Back in 2001 when our team did the research for a possible camping tour at Koh Ker. It took us 2 days to go from Siem Reap to Koh Ker by a pick up truck for just about 100km. Our truck had to go through the mud in the jungle; we had to push our truck and it hardly moved. For just 1Km, it took 1 hour for the truck to get through. Now thing has completely changed. Three years, later Koh Ker temple have also been demined and a road has been built to access this pre-Angkorian temple complex. Camping tour at Koh Ker is one of an amazing camping tour introduced in our Cambodia Adventure Tours. Through our updated research it is now possible to do the camping and trekking to Koh Ker with a good combination of Phnom Kulen and Beng Mealea followed our suggested itinerary and adventure guide.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Trekking 12km (visit Phnom Kulen and Beng Mealea)camping_in_cambodia
Meet with our guide to brief of the tour. Then transfer 1 hour to the foot of Kulen Mountain where we start hiking up the hill. The first 500 meters are uphill with some rock. Then it is flat all the ways. We make our first water stop at the pagoda in the middle of the climb to get some energy before heading through the jungle to the visit one Thousand Lingas. Then we visit the Grand Reclining Buddha and enjoy swimming at the 40 meter high water fall. After the trek, we visit Beng Mealea temple.
This trip will make special as we can escape from the crowded tourists in Angkor complex. This special temple was featured in the Lost Temples by Indiana Jones and The Two Brothers by a French movie maker, Jean Clake Annaud. Beng Mealea is located 50km from Siem Reap. It is an untouched temple hidden in the jungle surrounded by its mood 900 meters by 1,200 meters. Beng Mealea is a beautiful, charming temple. It has it own character which cannot be found in any other temple. We can feel very peaceful sitting inside the temple as we can get rid of the many tourists at Angkor area. After the visit, we enjoy the snack and drinks before transferring to Koh Kher. Then we visit Sayong village before having a basic shower with cold water. We have dinner, Cambodian barbeque style and rice. Overnight in our tent.

Day 2: Visit Koh Ker Temple Complex (Trekking 10km)

Koh Ker was the former capital of the King Jayavarman IV, reigned 928AD, when he moved the capital from Angkor to Koh Ker. Angkor period refers to the period from the year 800 when the first capital was settled in Rolous Groups and lasted in the year 1,432. The capital in Koh Ker remained for 20 years before it has been moved back to Angkor area and was settled at Phnom Bakheng where people climbed for the sunset.
