    tour details

    Cycling the temples gives you an experience you cannot have if you are in a tuktuk or a car as not only is it easy to cycle around but you also avoid the main roads as much as possible taking jungle paths and countryside roads to get from one site to another. In this tour in particular you will visit some of the “must see” temples as well as one of the most beautiful countryside in the region.

    tour description

    At 07:30 hours, a minivan will bring your mountain bikes to your hotel from which you will start this cycling tour with a 35km ride to Banteay Srei temple (10th century), regarded as the jewel in the crown of classical Khmer art.
    You will cycle through Angkor and through the countryside besides rice fields until you reach the Citadell of Women, which you will visit before stopping for lunch in a local restaurant.
    After lunch, cycle back on secondary and mainly unpaved roads towards Angkor to reach Preah Khan, and visit the temple of the same name, built by King Jayavarman VII. A little jewel.
    Continue to the artificial lake of Jayatataka where you will visit Neak Pean, a collection of five ponds with unique features, followed by Banteay Kdei also called the "Citadel of Monks' cells", which is surrounded by four concentric walls.
    Cycle back to your hotel on the small circuit road and countryside trails, and you will have ridden approximately 75km today!

        notes

        The wet season is not the ideal time for biking. The best season is from November through to April, roughly corresponding to the dry season and the tourist high season. May, June and July need not be a bad time either, as it is hard to predict when the rains will come. We would not recommend a biking trip during August and September.
