The locals come here to cool off. Most of the people we saw were local teenagers that were taking a dip in their regular clothes not swim trunks. The waterfall is beautiful and you can get really close to it. There are two waterfalls one was smaller and then the larger one. We swam in the lager one. You can... More

I rollerbladed from Siem Reap and a tourist van kindly took me up the long dirt road. The friendly guard arranged for a motorbike to show me around and bring me back down the mountain for an additional fair fee. Compared to National Parks with waterfalls in Kamphaeng Phet Thailand, this park was primitive, expensive, and lackluster. The waterfall was... More

Kulen mountain was built into our 2 day itinerary by our tour guide. I was a little concerned after reading quite polarised reviews, but decided to give it a try to break up the temple circuit a bit. We ended up really enjoying the morning there. The drive is quite long, but we broke it up with a visit to... More

This is my perfect day! Pick up tickets in town first, get the van to drop me at the base of the mountain (along the road to the right of the main ticket booth about 1km), hike to the top, stop and enjoy a picnic lunch, then walk around the sites; 1000 lingas, waterfall, Preah Ang Thom pagoda. Brilliant! The... More

Trip to Kulen mountain is about 2 hours drive from the city, better to leave early in the morning so that you have ample time to visit all places around. Carry your swim clothes and towels so that you don't end up buying clothes there. All in all it was a good visit.

This was probably the most overhyped, under delivered attraction of our trip. It consists of a giant sleeping Buddha, a river of 1000 lingas and a waterfall. As a package, it sounds very promising, but where this fails to deliver is the price paid - $20, per person, and what we got was 2 hours of drive on an unpaved... More

Our second visit to Siem Reap Province and we had seen many of the sights in a previous visit. So the mountain trip was next on the agenda. We had a very good guide who offered so many interesting details of the area and the sights. The 1000 Lingas, the reclining Buddha and the story behind the 3 sections (for... More

We went here on an organised day trip and we're fortunate to have a good guide. There is a fair bit to see and I've no doubt that we just skimmed the surface but some of the highlights for us were the river of 1000 Lingas (the story that goes with this is great), the spring, the temple and of...

Tickets are sold to foreigners for 20 US Dollars with this value drpicted on the tickey. The real cost of the ticket to the concession holder is 13 dollars with 7 dollars going to the tour company, organiser, guide, driver, whoever organises the ticket for you. Once you learn this and you think you might go to the ticket office... More

This is a good 2 hours drive from Siem Reap with breaks. There are 4 different attractions to cover in this small mountain. First , the 1000 Lingas beneath the stream, second the reclining Buddha; which is not unique to the region, third item is the highly overrated tiny waterfall which is generally crowded , the fourth item is to...
