Phnom Kulen NP ~ cambodia

after visiting the 12th century temples of angkor wat on day #1, we decided to see the holy mountains region Phnom Kulen in north western cambodia, the area where angkor begun. phnom kulen is sometimes written as phnom koulen and means the mountain of the lychees. of course it is a UNESCO world cultural heritage too.

  • Preah Ang Thom ~ buddhist temple from 16th century 
  • waterfalls 
  • pol pot's communist regime's khmer rouge killing fields (close to or already part of siem reap)
  • siem reap part 2 & 3 ~ the historical centre visited in the morning of our day 3 in cambodia
