Commence your tour with a delightful forest walk along the banks of the ancient East Baray! Once a water source for the Angkor temples, it is now a fertile plain of paddy fields and sugar palm trees. On your walk you’ll pass through Pradark Pagoda and small villages of traditional wooden stilted houses, shaded by coconut palms and great clumps of bamboo. You’ll continue to walk beside the lake at the base of the mountain before heading into thick scrub before emerging beside steps that lead up the 200 meters to the hilltop temple. Here you can watch the sun sink over the Siem Reap countryside with a well-earned drink in hand! For those who aren’t able or willing to climb the hill after the hike, there is a beautiful spot beside the lake to have a drink and enjoy the sunset.
