Angkor Hike Bike

05 Nights / 06 days

ARRIVE SIEM REAP (D)

Upon arrival in Siem Reap, your local English speaking guide will welcome you and accompany you to the hotel for check in.
Relax after your flight and enjoy some time at leisure.

This afternoon, set out on your first cycling adventure to explore the rural charms of the Cambodian countryside. A rich tapestry
woven with lush scenery, colorful bustling villages, stilted houses, hidden temples and dusty back roads hedged with sugar palms
await you.

During sunset time, Angkor Wat is less visited, and the Apsaras will shine in the most beautiful light. Return to your hotel, where you can enjoy the evening at leisure.

You will pass through the Village of Chreav on route to the Tonle Sap Lake. The Tonle Sap is South East Asia’s largest freshwater lake with its size varying greatly depending on the season, as it swells to about four times its size during the wet season.

Down meandering trails with flashes of effervescent green and rich red earth abound from the fields; the fragrant smell of lotus blossom from Buddhist shrines excites your senses. Stop for a well earned rest in the shade of the ancient Wat Athvea and take some time to explore this temple. Weave your way through the dusty back roads to a small stilted hammock bar overlooking the rice fields, where you will stop for light refreshment before proceeding to the seldom visited Phnom Krom hill.

The temple at Phnom Krom sits on top of one of the best vantage points overlooking the vast expanse of the Tonle Sap Lake. Take in this view as the sun sets. Transfer back to your hotel. This evening, you will have your first encounter with Khmer Cuisine at The Sugar Palm, served in a traditional Khmer house with a charming warm interior. 17 km bike

Overnight at your choice of hotel in Siem Reap.


ANGKOR TREKKING (B/L/D)

Breakfast at your hotel. A short transfer will bring you to the beginning of your temple exploration experience. You set out like
the first explorers did on foot, trekking through the dense jungle of the magnificent temples of Angkor. Your first destination is
Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat is constructed following the
model of the temple mountain symbolizing Mount Meru, the home of the gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with
stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II fought during his reign. Angkor Wat
is well known for the more than 2,000 Apsara dancers decorating the temple. Construction is thought to have taken around
thirty years of intensive labor. Today, Angkor Wat is figured on Cambodia's national flag as the temple symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people.

Walking from temple to temple is a unique way to see these magnificent ruins: glimpses of small temples can be spotted amongst dense jungle, towers appear looming overhead, and the sheer number of ruins along the way is staggering. Stop on the way for lunch at a simple local restaurant. From here, find your way through the forest towards the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. This city is surrounded by an 8 m high wall, drawing a perfect square.

From here, continue to Bayon Temple through meandering sandy trails that lead you through the dense jungle canopy. This 12th century masterpiece is a study in grandeur and is well-known for its 54 towers with enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs. Return to your hotel for some time at leisure.

From here, it is only a short hop to the most beautiful temples of the Grand Circuit, like the overgrown Preah Khan Temple and Neak Pean with its artificial lakes. Return to your hotel.

Tonight, enjoy an atmospheric dinner at Champey restaurant next to pup street. 10 km trek

Overnight at your choice of hotel in Siem Reap.


SIEM REAP – PHNOM KULEN – BENG MEALEA – SIEM REAP (B/L/D)

fter breakfast at your hotel, transfer through seemingly endless rice fields and friendly local villages to Phnom Kulen, an impressive sandstone plateau in this otherwise flat area. The mountain is considered the birthplace of the Khmer empire and a sacred place for the Khmer. At the top of Phnom Kulen, you will discover stone carvings in a riverbed, a large reclining Buddha from the 16th century and visit several hidden pagodas. One of the main attractions is a waterfall where you can take a refreshing bath. From here, trek east to Svay Leu Pagoda.

On the way you will discover Cambodia’s pristine jungle and some wildlife as well as the lychee trees Kulen is famous for. There is often a lively local market near the pagoda which you have time to explore – a real insight into the way of life in this remote area. Now you are ready to start the second part of today’s adventure: Cycle south on less used roads to Beng Mealea. We will have lunch here. Feel like an explorer when you discover the completely overgrown temple. Undiscovered for centuries, Beng Mealea has only recently been made accessible and remains unrestored. It is one of the very few temples that actually give the opportunity to climb through it. Explore the place on a trek through the jungle ruins and beyond. Transfer back to Siem Reap. A filling and delicious dinner will be served in a contemporary setting at Nest Angkor Restaurant.

Overnight at your choice of hotel in Siem Reap.


SIEM REAP - BANTEAY SREI – WAT TABENG (B/L/D)

This morning, get in the saddle again for a gentle cycling tour to Banteay Srei via back roads and villages. On the way, you will
have the possibility to stop at local communities along the way and your guide will help you to interact with the local community
to learn about the way of life here. Seize the opportunity to see how rice paper is produced and to taste Palm Wine and Palm
Sugar, which are a popular local produce (seasonal).

Arrive at the “gem” of the Angkor area, the pretty temple of Banteay Srey. The so-called “CVisit the Landmine Museum which
promotes mine awareness. Mr. Aki Ra, the museum founder, was trained as a child soldier during the Khmer Rouge regime and
is working today as a de-miner. The museum serves also as a rescue center for a number of landmine amputee children that Aki Ra has brought off Phnom Penh’s streets or from impoverished rural communities.itadel of the Women” remains the best preserved temple in Cambodia. It displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art as this small temple is noted for its truly remarkable fine bas-reliefs. Banteay Srey is unique in that it is constructed of pink sandstone, which is seen nowhere else in Angkor. Before you explore the temple, enjoy a picnic lunch in a relaxed setting at Banteay Srei Pagoda.

From Banteay Srei, it is only a short 18 km ride to Wat Tabeng, a traditional village that is among the most scenic in Cambodia, set amidst a sea of rice fields. Here, in a clean and safe place on the premises of a picturesque wat, you will find your home for tonight: An adventure style tented camp in the grounds of the pagoda. Imagine waking up to the sounds of nature is an experience no hotel room can provide.

Set out to explore the pagoda, village and surroundings with your guide, who will facilitate your encounters with the local population. This evening, a Khmer BBQ dinner will served at the camp, which you can enjoy in comfortable and stylish sitting areas. 55 km bike

Overnight in a tented camp at Wat Tabeng.

WAT TABENG – PHNOM BOK - KAMPONG PLUK – SIEM REAP (B/L/D)

Get up early as you will be invited to witness the monks at Wat Tabeng perform their morning rituals, and you will have many chances to meet the monks personally. Breakfast at the camp.

Later on, a short cycle through the village will bring you to Phnom Bok hill, where a short trek will lead you to the top, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the plains below. Walk down towards the pretty temple of Banteay Samre, where you will enjoy a relaxing lunch break.

From here, a military style jeep will take you on a journey towards Tonle Sap Lake (35km), South East Asia’s largest freshwater lake with its size varying greatly depending on the season, as it is swelling to about four times it size during the wet season. Board a local boat and visit Kampong Phluck, a village where you will see houses on stilts that are submerged when Tonlé Sap Lake extends. On the way, you will pass floating houses and impressive flooded forests, portraying life on the water.

(NOTE: Due to low water levels during the dry season, the boat trip is only possible from June to March, but we can arrange an overland visit to Kampong Pluck that is an equally interesting experience, as you can walk among the stilted houses). Return to Siem Reap. Tonight, enjoy a Khmer dinner at Viroth’s, a stylish and comfortable restaurant set in a quiet garden. 5 km bike & 10 km trek
