Accommodation on the mountain in a local guesthouse with the small market community that live at the base of the temple.

Day 3:

Sunrise over Preah Vihear. Drive on rough roads to Tbeng Meanchey, the lively capital town of Preah Vihear Province. This is a small friendly town and a passing through point. You will be able to visit a local silk-weaving co-operative. Lively central town square with restaurants & local entertainment. Good food and accommodation available in local hotel. Drive time 5 hours, distance 130 km

Day 4:

Stop off at Sambor Prei Kup, a seventh century complex of temples surrounded by forest before hitting Kampong Thom town, the capital town of the province set on the Stung Sen river. This is a busy market town with a selection of hotels, restaurants and entertainment. Great food and accommodation in local hotel. Drive time 5 hours, distance 150km.

Day 5:

Return to Siem Reap after a visit to Santuk Mountain, a holy place just outside of Kampong Thom, containing many shrines but its outstanding feature is a reclining Buddha carved on to rock, one of the largest reclining Buddha’s in the world. Flat road back to Siem Reap in time for sunset. 

Check-in to your hotel and wash out the dust and aches and pains of long day’s travel. Reconvene at Hidden Cambodia’s base for dinner and drinks to celebrate the journey.
