Some of the most interesting and important ancient sites of the Khmer Kingdom can be found in the dense forests and lush jungles of Cambodia. We’ll head to the sacred Kulen Mountain range, and hike through the forest to a hilltop and the incredibly interesting Angkorian archaeological site of Kbal Spean. Also known as the Thousand Linga River, Kbal Spean is a spectacular site with carvings etched into the rocky riverbed in tribute to the god Shiva. A nearby waterfall adds to the area’s natural beauty. After a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, we’ll drive through typical scenic Khmer countryside to the long-abandoned ruins of Beng Mealea temple where you’ll find ancient remains that are virtually untouched and strangled by the overgrown jungle.
