Phnom Kulen Mountain Waterfal Tours

Tour to Water fall  at Kulen can also combine with Bantay Srei, Bengmela, The Phnom Kulen mountain range is located 58 km with an hours and half drive to reach this Site at  northwards from Angkor Wat. Its name means "mountain of the lychees" There is a sacred hilltop site on top of the range.

Phnom Kulen is considered a holy mountain in Cambodia, of special religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists who come to the mountain in pilgrimage.

It also has a major symbolic importance for Cambodians as the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire, for it was at Phnom Kulen that King Jayavarma II proclaimed independence from Java in 804 CE. Jayavarman II initiated the cult of the king, a linga cult, in what is dated as 804 CE and declaring his independence from Java of whom the Khmer had been a vassalage state (whether this is actually "Java" or "Lava" (a Lao kingdom)

The site is known for its carvings representing fertility and its waters which hold special significance to Hindus. Just 5 cm under the water's surface over 1000 small carvings are etched into the sandstone riverbed. The waters are regarded as holy, given that King Jayavarman II chose to bathe in the river, and had the river diverted so that the stone bed could be carved. Carvings include a stone representation of the Hindu god Vishnu laying on his serpent Ananta, with his wife Lakshmi at his feet.

lotus flower protrudes from his navel bearing the god Brahma. The river then ends with a waterfall and a pool.

Near these mountains is Preah Ang Thom, a 16th century Buddhist monastery notable for the giant reclining Buddha, the country's largest.

The Samré tribe was formerly living at the edge of Phnom Kulen, quarrying sandstone and transporting it to the royal sites.

This was our second visit to Angkor and our second time driving around with Phat. Travelling with a tuk-tuk is the best way to see Angkor - every morning Phat was there to meet us at our guesthouse, his tuk-tuk with it's little green cool box - full with ice cold water and even colder disposable wet wipes - at the ready. Phat could always suggest an itinerary for us, and was just a fountain of knowledge in general - after being driving his tuk-tuk around Angkor for 11 years, he knows the best times to visit each temple, the best photo spot, the quietest place. More than this, Phat is just a lovely person, considerate, paying great attention to detail and always trying to make things as easy as possible for us. The temples are stupendous, but the best times with Phat were when he was showing us 'real' life - taking us to visit his village, or to the local market. Angkor is great - driving around with Phat made it even more enjoyable. Visited November 2012

After reading a lot of positive stories on the internet and tripadvisor about mr. Sok Phat\'s \'\'cambodian taxidriver\'\' organisation, my girlfriend and I decided to book a view trips and transfers and we weren\'t dissapointed! In Siem Reap we went to the Temples (1 day with sunrise) and were accompanied by driver mr. Houn and tourguide mr. Vanna. All we can say about mr. Vanna is that he\'s one of the sweetest man we have ever met! He had loads of stories to tell, not only about the temples, but also about his past and the war, witch was fascinating to hear. Mr. Vanna knows so much about the temples that he's like a walking history book :-) and we've could have spent days listening to his stories if we would have had the time for it. Since the people of Cambodia don't make great amounts of money it's always nice to give people a tip and in this case driver Mr. Houn and tour guide Mr. Vanna They and specially Mr. Vanna definitely deserved it!! In Phnom Penh we did a tour to the killing fields, shooting range, Tuol Sleng prison and the Royal Palace with Mr. Sarath, and again we had a great day. Mr. Sarath has his own company (http://www.cambodiataxitour.com/), but works together with Mr. Path if tours are needed in Phnom Penh. Mr. Sarath will drive you all day around in Phnom Penh, wat ever you want. He is also a very nice guy and even invited us to come for dinner, but sadly we didnít have time. He is also very honest, he brings you to restaurants with no commission, so you donít pay to much, he just wants you to have a nice holiday! So this man deserved a big tip as well. We also arranged our transportation from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville with the help of Mr Phat, as well as other transfers to airports etc. Due to some miscommunication we missed our transfer, arranged by Mr. Phat, from Sihanouville to Phnom Penh Airport, but luckily there was another driver who could bring us. So everything went alright and there were no further problems. These things could happen and everything turned out all right. We hope that our recommendation will help to book even more clients, cause they did a great job and if we ever return to Cambodia we will surely give Mr Path a call! Mr. Phat can arrange all tours and transfers in whole Cambodia, he has his connections, so you donít have to look in each town for another company. They have excellent english speaking guides and drivers and the prices are very good and they wonít rip you off. (P.s., MR Phat: please give our best regards and a big hug to m.r Vanna and Mr. Sarath!). Best wishes Dave van Dalen & Sandra Visser form Holland Visited Frebruary - March
