    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Meet your guide at your hotel in Siem Reap at 8 am. Depart in the morning heading north towards Kulen Mountain through approximately a 2-hour drive in an air-conditioned vehicle.  Enjoy the scenic ride along the way as you pass through local villages and verdant tropical forest.  You will visit Cambodia’s biggest Reclining Buddha carved on sandstone. The temple is located on top of the hill and can be reached through a flight of steps.  Next you will set off to the sacred river of 1000 Lingas.  The riverbed is interestingly carved with numerous lingas, a phallic symbol of the Hindu god, Shiva.  You will also see some rock carvings along the river depicting Hindu deities.  You will continue through another sacred site, the Phnom Kulen Waterfalls.  Calm your senses by watching the waterfall tumbling down the rocks.  You will have time to wade in its basin and opt to cool-off from the midday sun by swimming on its pool. Discover and learn more about the historical and cultural significance of Phnom Kulen as your expert guide walks you through each of these landmarks. Stop for lunch (at your own account) at a local restaurant along the way before heading back to your hotel.
