Unrivalled Preah Vihear

The temple of Preah Vihear stands alone in its stunning location. Atop the Dangrek Mountains it offers unrivalled views of northern Cambodia. Take a look with Hanuman Travel TV.

 

Prasat Preah Vihear is perched on a promontory high in the Dangrek Mountains and became Cambodia’s second Unesco World Heritage site in 2008. The effect of that and the subsequent confrontation with neighbours Thailand, has improved access to this stunning temple, which can be visited in a day from Siem Reap. At an elevation of 625m the views are breathtaking and the northern Cambodian plains stretch as far as the eye can see. Construction of the temple began in the 9th century and continued through the next three centuries. Access to the temple from Thailand is not currently possible. A day trip to Preah Vihear temple from Siem Reap is possible, or take an overnight stop in the province to make the most of your visit. Ask Hanuman for details.
