Your journey will start at your hotel where the team will come to pick you up.
This tour will bring you deep in the forest to the former capital of the Khmer Empire, Koh Ker, which includes a series of ruins around a baray. Apart from the impressive 7-tier pyramid, there are several other outstanding ruins, like the giant lingas and the magnificent elephant temple to discover.
This tour also includes a 4-hour cultural walk through the village of Koh Ker, where you will experience firsthand how life in rural Cambodia is on a daily basis. The cultural walk is done in cojunction with an entity founded by two former high school students, who went back to their home village to start a company and bring support to their families.
It is important to highlight that the area is also of great interest to bird watchers.
Also, Beng Mealea, offers stunning photography opportunities of roots
intertwining with temples walls. The grounds cover more than one square kilometer, with lush, and overgrown vegetation.
