Day 1: Siem Reap to Preah Vihear include Beng Mealea and Koh Ker 

We start the journey from Siem Reap and drive to the Southeast to visit the12th century Beng Mealea.  The lost temple of Beng Mealea is the titanic of temples, a slumbering giant lost for centuries in the forests of Cambodia. It is the most accessible of Angkor’s lost temples, a mirror image of Angkor Wat, but utterly consumed by the voracious appetite of nature. Afterwards, we head forward to Koh Ker which it takes one-hour pass through countryside and primary forest. We being our visit at Prasat Pram, one of the wonderful temples in Koh Ker group and is covered in strangler figs. We then drive to visit a lonely temple calls Prasat Neang Khmao which it looks like it has been burnt in the previous time, we continue to other temples in the circle such as Damrei Kandoeng, Chrap, Banteay Pir Choan, Kra Chab, Linga. We keep a unique stepped 7-tiered pyramid Koh Ker or Prasat Thom for the last one after having lunch at the local restaurant. Koh Ker served as the capital of the Khmer empire in the 10th century. It is an amazing temple with peaceful environment, you can spend time to climb the pyramid on a wooden staircase to see the nice view of the green forest. We will spend overnight stay in Sra Aem village where is 30 km from Preah Vihear temple.

You keep going onwards to the final level, clinging to a cliff face in the Dangrek Mountains, towering hundreds of metres above lowland Cambodia below. Afterward we travel about three hours to Banteay Chhmar, the temple is a truly magical place well off the beaten track. Banteay Chhmar temple is one of Cambodia’s most important and least understood temples from the Angkorian period. The temple complex, its moat, Baray (water reservoir) and surrounding unspoilt environment comprises a unique archaeological site and a vital link in Cambodia’s cultural heritage.

Afterward, we go to experience bamboo train ride. Norry is a name that local people call and its first appearance in the early 1980s inspired by the small rail vehicles used by the railway workers to carryout repairs but today local villagers use it as convenient transportation from villages to the area near Battambang centre. Then we travel to the ancient mountain temple calls Wat Banan. The temple is constructed on top of a hill in the 11th century and it consists of five classic Angkor towers.
