Camping on Kulen Mountain for 1 Night, 2 Days
When people come to Siem Reap, Angkor Wat temple will be the first thing on their visit. The temple is known as the biggest ancient monument in Asia. However, the beyond tourist attractions are available as well on many different sides, places, and activities.
You got temples, countryside, boat-trip, circuses, and more than meets the eye – that Siem Reap can entertain you during your stay and visit. In this post, I’m going to show you one of the amazing activities that everyone will absolutely love it.
Siem Reap has the biggest waterfall located on the top of Kulen Mountain. Every day there will be hundreds of tourists and local people going to visit. Most of them would just see the main waterfall, and the big Buddha statue (reclining Buddha) carved on the top of the big rock. Recently, there are a village, school, pagoda, and some hidden gem that has just been built and found.
We started the trip at about 6 am in the morning and got there about an hour later. Before we arrive at the campsite, we stopped for a quick look at the cliff for the view of the mountains, the best place to take a picture.
We got over twenty people on this trip, half of us started by cycling from town, some others went by motorbike and the rest went by minivan. Big bus and the Tuk-
Once we arrived at the campsite, everyone picked their favorite camp at a favorite spot. A small waterfall more like a stream flowing through the jungle behind our campsite, most of us just jumped into the water after we dropped our bag in the camp – enjoy the swim, jumping from the jetty, and rope until lunchtime calling us.
After lunch, we hopped on the van and drove to the biggest waterfall on the mountain (Kulen Waterfall). It is flowing on the carving thousand linga (Thousand Cocks) down to the bottom, with its beauty and frosty water, making the waterfall look stunning.
Back at the campsite, we played games with our team and the party started after dinner. Everybody did enjoy dancing, drinking, and playing more games. Of course, we off for another swim that night and back to sit for chit-chat in front of a campfire until everyone passed out.
The next morning came, and we were all ready for the trek through the jungle to see the Batcave, Sras Domrei (elephant statues) landed in the middle of the forest. It took us more than two hours back and forth. This is the best part of our trip. We have another lovely lunch before our trip ended.
