Private Kbal Spean, Kulen & Banteay Srey Trip

See all of what Banteay Srey district has to offer! This tour begins with an early morning visit to Kbal Spean, an archaeological site at the top of one of Kulen’s hills. We will hike about one hour and arrive at the Valley of 1000 Lingas, a river whose bed contains thousands of phalanxes built in the 12th century. We will then visit Phnom Kulen National Park. Highlights of the visit include a 16th-century pagoda, remnants of the lost city of Mahendraparvata, and stunning waterfalls and jungle scenery. Afterwards, we head to Banteay Srey temple, a gorgeous site famous for its ruby red stone and well-preserved statues and carvings, before making our way back to Siem Reap.

The tour is priced at 275 USD and includes transportation, English speaking guide, national park tickets and donations to partner organizations for up to 4 participants. It does not include meals. There are no additional fees, but there is a supplement of 25 USD per person after four people. Please note we do not include the Temple Ticket which is required for both Banteay Srey temple and Kbal Spean. It is the same ticket used to visit Angkor Wat and costs 37 USD per person. Lastly, please note there is moderate hiking at Kbal Spean.
