Ride in a comfy, air-conditioned vehicle to discover the lost temple of Beng Mealea, hidden within the jungles of Cambodia. Then travel to the ancient Angkor capital of Koh Ker to climb atop the temple of Prasat Thom for magnificent views of the lush tropical vegetation that dominates the landscape.
Meet up with your tour guide at your hotel lobby, settle into your comfortable coach, and set off on your journey to the lost temple of Beng Mealea. The unrestored ruins depict how nature reclaims all as the massive stone buildings have succumbed to jungle overgrowth. The temple was once the center of a major Angkor town dating back to the 12th century, but little is now known of its elusive history.
Next, travel to the remote Angkor capital of Koh Ker, 70 miles (112 km) northeast of Siem Reap. The 10th-century capital features a vast collection of temples with the 98 foot (30 m) Prasat Thom towering above them all. Climb to the top of the temple for panoramic views of the lush tropical vegetation now growing atop most of the structures, slowly eroding the abandoned city.
Break for lunch after a day of exploring the Koh Ker ruins then conclude your tour with a hassle-free ride back to your Siem Reap accommodation.
