Stop 1: Anlong Veng, Pol Pot’s Last Station

Anlong Veng located 125 km north of Siem Reap town and it the last stronghold of Khmer Rouge. All survivors of Khmer Rouge gained so much suffering, and they’ve never believed that they could survive. Our tour guide will take you to Ta Mok’s house (Military Chief) where we are going to demonstrate how Khmer Rouge occupies and collapse.

Stop 2: Preah Vihear, the Mountain Gods

We travel through the natural border of Cambodia and Thailand, Dangrek Mountain Rage toward the home of gods. Preah Vihear built on the slopes of Dangrek Mountain Rage, at the cliff of a 525 meters height. The first temple construction built in the early 9th century dedicated to Hindu and Shiva. We also can find elements of the Banteay Srei style of the early 10th century, but most the temple constructed during the reign of the Khmer kings Suryavarman I (1006-1050) and Suryavarman II (1113-1150). The architecture is majestic and the view is spectacular. Sitting at Poy Tadi, we can see many kilometers across the forests and plantations.

Stop 3: Koh Ker, the homeland of Jayavarman IV

We leave for Preah Vihear in the morning after having breakfast at the local market. Extending our journey to one of the ancient Khmer Empire cities, Koh Ker built by Jayavarman IV who was a local king before he became king of the whole empire. During his reign, he built 40 temples, the unique seven-tiered pyramid, and a huge Baray (water-reservoir). Koh Ker-style was developed and reached a panicled art of sculpture.
We travel through the area of 81 square Kilometers and finish this visit at a stunning pyramid temple.

Stop 4: Beng Mealea, one of the largest Khmer Empire temples

After lunch and the whole morning wandering around Koh Ker, we extend our journey to Beng Mealea. It is one of the Hindu temples built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. A local Khmer’s writer, Sor Sarun said ” It was built as a sample of Angkor Wat” it means before they built a perfect Angkor Wat, Beng Mealea was a study. After discovering this Hindu mythology, we travel back to Siem Reap and arrive in the evening.
